Lady Tigers are gaining confidence

Wednesday, January 11, 2017 by TYLER TRUMBAUER in Sports

Since falling to Southern Lehigh back on Dec. 21, the Northwestern girls’ basketball team has not lost.

The Lady Tigers continued their winning streak on Saturday afternoon when they defeated Salisbury, 43-22, in a Colonial League game in New Tripoli.

“The more we play together the better we are getting,” Northwestern head coach Chris Deutsch. “Our girls are getting more confidence. We played the next night after that loss and it was the perfect medicine for us. We never...

Cerrone to run for Team NY

Wednesday, January 11, 2017 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Most of us know the movie “Forrest Gump.” At one part of the film, the character that Tom Hanks portrays is seen running across the country, simply for the enjoyment of it.

Rachele Cerrone, a 2015 graduate of Northwestern High School, is taking on her own version of that popular 1994 movie.

Cerrone, now a sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh, will be running across the United States in the 4K for Cancer this summer. As a part of Team New York, Cerrone, along with 30 other...

Chisdak put team goals first

Wednesday, January 4, 2017 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Abby Chisdak and the Northwestern girls basketball team are ringing in the New Year with a tough three-game stretch in the first week of January. She also recently finished her third high school soccer season in the fall.

Whether Chisdak is running up and down the hardwood or across the soccer pitch, one thing remains consistent with the Tiger junior. No matter what sport it is, she’ll do whatever is necessary for the betterment of the team.

It’s that willingness to put the...

Blaine named top player by Times News

Wednesday, January 4, 2017 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

Put aside his talent, his 6-foot-3 frame, his knowledge of the game and his incredible work ethic.

All those things have made Jonathan Blaine a great soccer player. But what stands out the most is a quality that is essential to being a great central defender.

While Blaine could have been successful at any position on the soccer field, he chose one that gets little recognition. He anchored the Tiger defense for three years. He had few opportunities to score goals or get his name...

Clymer takes third place

Wednesday, January 4, 2017 by PETER CAR in Sports

Caleb Clymer was never himself on the wrestling mat last season. After dealing with a broken hip for the majority of last winter, Clymer is back to his regular self a year later and the bounce in his step is noticeable on the mats.

He was one of two Tigers to earn medals at last week’s Bethlehem Holiday Wrestling Tournament at Liberty High School.

Clymer bounced back from a 7-1 semifinal loss to Stoughton’s Tyler Dow to grab third place with a 5-0 decision over Liberty’s...

Big second half leads boys to win

Wednesday, December 28, 2016 by TYLER TRUMBAUER in Sports

The blueprint for success for the Northwestern boys’ basketball program for this season is mixing youth and experience in the lineup.

The plan worked to perfection against Northern Lehigh last week.

The Tigers (3-2 overall, 2-2 Colonial League) battled the Bulldogs in the first half, but pulled away in the final two frames as they notched a 53-33 victory in New Tripoli last week in the latest battle of the Mountain Road Rivalry.

“We put a lot on Deven [Bollinger’s] and...

Girls beat Bulldogs

Wednesday, December 28, 2016 by TYLER TRUMBAUER in Sports

Northwestern girls’ basketball head coach Chris Deutsch was happy his team played on Dec. 22, the opponent nor the outcome didn’t matter to him.

It didn’t hurt that it resulted in a win either.

The Lady Tigers (4-3, 3-1 Colonial League) bounced back from an unpleasant 66-28 loss to Southern Lehigh on Dec. 21 as they defeated Northern Lehigh 58-22 in the first game of a boys-girls varsity doubleheader for the Mountain Road Rivalry at Northwestern Lehigh High School.
