Thursday, December 12, 2013 by The Press in Sports

Two strong, senior divers are returning to Liberty's girls team this season, as Rachel Steiner and Brenna McCornac are expected to lead the Hurricanes.

Steiner was a consistent top performer in 11-dive meets last year, placing fourth in the LVC meet, and McCornac placed fifth in districts, also last year.

Coach Jeff Zettlemoyer will also dive Samantha Kincaid and Rachel Finn.

Liberty's boys currently have one diver, freshman, David Darlington.

Thursday, December 12, 2013 by KATIE MCDONALD in Sports

Freedom High School's divers, Kaycee Stoudt, John McGinty, and Madison Young, competed in their first dual meet of the regular season last Friday at home against Emmaus.

McGinty placed second with 163 points, behind Emmaus's Andrew Vanim, who scored 168.65 points.

The Freedom sophomore's highest scores, sevens and eights, came on his inward pike.

"It just felt right," McGinty said.

McGinty also scored well on his reverse.

I practice it a lot. It's one of my...

LHS swimmers have depth

Thursday, December 12, 2013 by KATIE MCDONALD in Sports

As always, the Liberty Hurricanes will have depth on their side for the 2013-2014 swimming season.

"The boys numbers are really good. The returning kids talked it up to the younger kids," said coach Reik Foust.

The boys team had a 10-3 season last year, and will work to improve upon that.

Key returners will include Sean Vanatta, Brandon Merkert, Evan Smith, Alex Fitch, and Nolan Vanatta.

Parkland, Emmaus, and Freedom expect to be challenges for the Hurricane boys...

Freedom comes up short against Zephs

Thursday, December 12, 2013 by PETER CAR in Sports

While Liberty needed overtime to register its first win of the season, Freedom needed a three-point shot to sink, rather than rim out in the waning seconds to lose their opener.

Ultimately, the Patriots couldn't get the final score they needed, as they lost to Whitehall on their home court 52-48 during the 10th annual Yasso-Rothrock Christmas City Classic.

Freedom trailed 50-48 with under 10 seconds left and went for a game-winning three-pointer on their final play. The shot...

Hornets top BC-Central on ice

Thursday, December 12, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in Sports

Emmaus came out on the winning end of a wild contest.

While the boxscore showed Emmaus getting outshot 53-20, the Hornets defeated Bethlehem Catholic/Central Catholic of the nonpure division by a 7-5 score after giving up a two-goal lead.

Emmaus may have been more consistent, scoring at a higher efficiency of their shots, but the Golden Hawks had their share of opportunities to take control. The Green Hornets were helped by strong goaltending from Michael Smoker (47 saves), and...

Stout back for Patriot divers

Thursday, December 12, 2013 by KATIE MCDONALD in Sports

Freedom High School senior, Kaycee Stoudt, will return to the Patriots diving team as captain for the 2013-2014 season.

Stoudt placed seventh in districts last year, and is expected to be in the hunt for a top spot in districts this season.

Coach Jeff Zettlemoyer believes Stoudt's best dives are her inward dive pike and her front one-and-a-half pike.

Stoudt is currently working on a back one with one-and-a-half twists.

"It's a brand new dive, and she's shaping it...

Hsu has a good day in the pool

Thursday, December 12, 2013 by KATIE MCDONALD in Sports

In her first swim meet of the new season on Friday against Emmaus, Freedom junior, Helen Hsu, tied the Freedom High School pool record in the 100 free, and later broke it in her lead off split in the 400 free relay in 52.58.

Hsu also won the 50 free in 24.38.

"I was faster than I expected, but that's not the most important part. The most important part is to bring the team together and have fun. We're so excited, so full of energy, and dedicated. It's fueling the Freedom High...

Hawks primed for playoffs

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 by PETER CAR in Sports

Tasting a trip to the District 11 3A finals last season may have been all the motivation that Bethlehem Catholic needed heading into the off-season, but coming home with silver medals in that championship game certainly adds fuel to the fire as well.

The Hawks enter the 2013-2014 season with 11 players back in the fold from last year, which should give head coach Mike Frew a plethora of talent and experience to compete on a nightly basis in the Lehigh Valley Conference.

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 by KATIE MCDONALD in Sports

Bethlehem Catholic's girls basketball team will look similar to that of last year's state finalist team, returning most players for a total of 11 on the varsity roster.

Although Kalista Walters and Janelle Robinson will be returning to the starting lineup, Nicole Lacherza is unavailable for competition at this time due to an injury.

Also returning are Gabby Reiman, Danielle Griffin, Nia Mims, Jordan Jones, and Alexa Foloweiler.

New to the Hawks are Easton transfer,...
