Baseball team is still improving

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 by TODD KRESS in Sports

First year Northwestern baseball head coach Bob Fatzinger believes he has yet to see his team play to its full potential.

That may be a good thing with Northwestern still above water in the middle of the Colonial League standings and the most important part of its schedule lying ahead.

Northwestern most recently defeated Moravian Academy in convincing fashion, a 13-1 victory to open the week. The win ended a brief two-game skid for the Tigers, but more importantly, Fatzinger is hoping that win can propel his team to bigger and better things.

Lady Tigers top Bulldogs

Emily Akelaitis found her comfort zone even before she stepped in the circle.

After Northwestern leadoff hitter Avery George scored the game’s first run in the top of the first inning, the Tigers’ right-handed hurler gained a lot of confidence before throwing her first pitch.

Given the lead, Akelaitis quickly gained control of the game. Her teammates continued to tack on runs, though, making her job a bit easier and the Tigers went on to secure a 12-1 Colonial League victory over rival Northern Lehigh.

Baseball ends skid, defeats Salisbury

Thursday, April 20, 2017 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

The Tigers needed a win badly. While the season is still young, there’s never a good time for a three-game losing streak and last week’s visit to Salisbury was an opportunity to keep that skid from reaching four games.

First-year Northwestern head baseball coach Bob Fatzinger gave the ball to his ace, Mason Vogwill. The senior pitched six solid innings, scattering eight hits while striking out three through six innings as his team posted an 8-3 win.

Cunningham goes 4-for-4 in win

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 by PATRICK MATSINKO in Sports

With a wry smile and already knowing the answer, a young fan lobbed a softball question to Northwestern’s Trevor Cunningham.

“Any seconds today?”

Cunningham’s response, much like his performance in Tuesday’s Colonial League meet against Palmerton, was crisp.

“Nope.”

Cunningham ripped off four victories. He took first place in the in the 100 (11.6) and 200 (23.6), while also sweeping the 110 hurdles (15.5) and 300 hurdles (41.6) to help the Tigers edge the Blue Bombers 78-72 in the boys meet.
