Hornets run over Timberwolves

Friday, September 5, 2014 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Second-year Emmaus head coach Randy Cuthbert felt like many high school coaches do after his team's first game of the season.

Thursday, August 21, 2014 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

Northampton's Cody Kramer just missed on a pitch in the bottom of the seventh inning of Game 3 of last week's Blue Mountain League championship series that would have propelled the Giants to a series win.
