Four harriers compete in states

Thursday, November 10, 2016 by PATRICK MATSINKO in Sports

There were no medals for Northwestern after the PIAA Cross Country Championships. But there was plenty for the Tigers to be proud of.

Sophomore Madeline Consuelos placed 36th (20:24) and junior Molly Tarvin 62nd (20:51) in the Class 2A girls’ race, while juniors Robert Leiser took 48th (17:34) and Phillip Castrine 78th (17:53) in the AA boys’ race.

Competing at the state meet without a team for the first time since 2010, Consuelos and Tarvin left with extra motivation to return with a full squad next year.

Field hockey competes in districts

Moravian Academy controlled the game early against Northwestern in the Class A field hockey semifinals, but Northwestern regrouped and got back into the game. However, the top-seeded Lions were too much for the Tigers, as Moravian moved on to the finals with a 6-1 win over Northwestern.

Northwestern gave up five quick corners, but kept Moravian Academy from capitalizing on them. Many of Northwestern’s early passes seemed to be picked off by opposing players early in the game, as they struggled to keep the ball away from the front of their net.

When all was said and done for the Northwestern football team, it wasn’t quite where it wanted to be at the end of the 2016 football season.

The Tigers’ hopes of making districts were already gone coming into the season finale against Catasauqua, but with a 48-20 win, they not only salvaged a .500 season, but found themselves set to play Blue Mountain for the Eastern Conference Championship next week.

Chris Stitzel knew it would happen at some point.

As the Northwestern cross country coach entered the 2016 campaign, he was well-aware that the 129-0 streak his girls carried into the season wouldn’t and couldn’t last forever.

“I know it’s going to end eventually, but we’re trying to enjoy it for as long as we can,” he said before the start of the season. “I don’t like to bring it up because I don’t want to put pressure on them. But they are aware of it.”

The streak, which started on Oct. 13, 2010, was halted at the hands of Southern Lehigh in September.
