ron gower/times news Tamaqua's Matt Stanek prepares to his tee shot at Villas Crossing Golf Course.

Over the course of the golf season, Lehighton and Tamaqua are stuck competing against some biggers schools in their respective conferences.

So while it was nice for the Indians to get a break from Mountain Valley Conference play yesterday afternoon, it turned out to be even sweeter for the Blue Raiders to have a day off from competition within the Schuylkill League.

That because the Blue Raiders walk off the Villas Crossing Golf Course with a 336-370 non-conference win over visiting Lehighton.

EASTON – It might not be as high-powered as some of the Wilson Air Raid offenses of the past decade, but the Warriors still have enough weapons to win a game when given the opportunity. And on Saturday, they were given several opportunities.

Both teams made mistakes, but Wilson was better able to capitalize on Palmerton's miscues to come away with a 19-12 win in the Warriors' home opener.

CENTER VALLEY – Tyler Stelmack knows the DeSales University cross country course. He's run it plenty of times in his career.

Tiger teammate Haley Yost ran to a fifth-place finish in the girls race as six area runners took home medals, which went to the top 25 finishers in the varsity races.
