Miller shoots career low 63

Friday, September 14, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Most golfers have gotten that unforgettable feeling for a shot or two. Some have even played stretches of a few holes or more where the ball just seemed to go where they wanted it to on nearly every shot.

But very, very few golfers can sustain that for an entire round.

One of those few is Northwestern junior Cole Miller. In a match against Pen Argyl on August 27 Miller shot a career low 63. He made nine birdies and no bogeys, shooting 3-under par on the front nine and a 6-under...

Tigers tame Falcons

Friday, September 14, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

When one football team beats another in all three facets of the game - offense, defense and special teams - the result is usually a comfortable margin of victory.

Northwestern beat Salisbury in all three phases last week and came away with a 23-0 win in the 2012 Tiger Stadium home opener.

After losing by 41 points in week 1, the Tigers wanted to prove they're a better team than the one that was shut out by Palisades on opening night.

"To come back off a 41-0 loss and win...

Friday, September 14, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Tyler Stelmack knows the DeSales University cross country course. He's run it plenty of times in his career.

The Northwestern senior used his knowledge of the course to earn a fourth-place finish Saturday in the 34th Annual DeSales Invitational. Tiger teammate Haley Yost ran to a fifth-place finish in the girls race as four Northwestern runners took home medals, which went to the top 25 finishers in the varsity races.

The Tigers' Rachele Cerrone (12th) and Carly Pierce (18th)...

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

The fall sports season gets into full swing this weekend.

Northwetsern's golf team started the season nearly two weeks ago, while the rest of the schools varsity fall sports teams get under way Friday and Saturday.

Tigers face unpredictable Pirates

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Scouting a team in Week 1 is never an easy task. Very little game film exists of the opponents and they can always be expected to make some tweaks and adjustments to what they did in the preseason.

Friday night Northwestern's going to see a Palisades team that not only has a new coaching staff, but also has several of last year's key players in new positions.

"They were very conservative in their scrimmages," said Northwestern head coach Josh Snyder. "They're going to have a...

Schnecksville's Ironman

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

Through high school and college Kenrick Smith was one of those increasingly rare athletes that played every sport he could. From swimming to football to track, cross country and then rugby at Widener University, the Lansdale native only gave up participation in one sport when it conflicted with others.

After college graduation, his sports careers went on hold as he started his professional career and a family. But he always wanted to get back into something.

"I always wanted to...

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Northwestern girls volleyball players had always hoped to play for a high school team. Some of them had been playing for the Northwestern Volleyball Club since middle school, competing against other high school teams during the spring club season.

For years they had been trying to get a high school team started that would compete against others in the fall, but as last year's school year was coming to a close, they still had not received approval.

Finally, in early June the...

Thursday, August 9, 2012 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in Sports

Madison Burns has accomplished a lot of great things in swimming, especially for a girl coming from a high school with no swim team. The Northwestern Lehigh grad, who holds the PIAA record in the 200 individual medley, recently competed at the Olympic Trials in Omaha, finishing 110th.

The event featured the best swimmers from around the country, all fighting for the relatively few spots available on the Olympic Swim Team that competed in London.

For Burns, being on swimming's...
