Tigers can’t look past Slaters

Wednesday, October 5, 2016 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

No matter what situation his team is in, Josh Snyder coaches his players to look at the next game on the schedule as the biggest game on the schedule. This week is the perfect example why.

Snyder doesn’t want his team looking back at its win over previously undefeated Saucon Valley, because that win won’t mean nearly as much if Bangor were to upset the Tigers Friday night.

Consuelos takes first for Lady Tigers

Wednesday, October 5, 2016 by PATRICK MATSINKO in Sports

Losing isn’t something the Northwestern girls’ cross country team has been forced to deal with in recent years.

The Lady Tigers entered the 2016 season having won 129 consecutive dual meets in Colonial League competition, a run that started in 2010.

That streak was snapped on Sept. 13 by Southern Lehigh.

Northwestern suffered its second loss of the season Tuesday – again at the hands of the Lady Spartans.

While Southern Lehigh swept Tuesday’s Colonial League meet to move to 21-0, it was Northwestern sophomore Madeline Consuelos that won the race.
