The final game of the 2013 Yasso-Rothrock Christmas City Classic at Liberty High School between teh host Hurricanes and Emmaus needed more than 32 minutes to declare a winner.
Following four quarters of play in which neither team separated itself by more than six points, the teams went into overtime tied at 45-45.
The Hurricanes, however, quickly took control of the extra quarter. Following a layup by the Hornets' Joey Nicolini to start overtime, the Hurricanes responded with the next 10 points to secure the 55-47 victory.
Heading into her fourth year at DeSales University, Lydia Younger wasn't quite sure if she would return to the Bulldogs' women's soccer team for the 2013 season.
Enrolled in a three-plus-two program at DeSales, Younger understood the demand and dedication such a program entailed. After completing her bachelor's degree in three years, she understood that working towards her master's degree in the Physician Assistant program over the course of her final two academic years would require much hard work.
Muhlenberg College sophomore offensive tackle Bryan Auvil has noticed the great play from opposing offensive lines throughout his college football career.
But while he certainly felt he was playing well in his second season as a member of the Mules' offensive line, his selection as an All-Centennial Conference First Team member was a surprise to Auvil.
"It was a huge surprise," Auvil said. "I didn't expect it at all. I felt like I played pretty well this season and played consistently, but I didn't really think I stood out or anything."
Emmaus senior Hanna Brosky is looked at as one of the veterans on the Hornet girls' cross-country team. Sophomore Katie Bacher is a relative newcomer to the team, as this season is her first running cross country.
Throughout the season, the two have helped each other tremendously in various aspects of one another's running.
During last week's District 11 Cross Country Championships at Bethlehem Golf Club, that continuous hard work paid off in a great way.
