Tamaqua has the luxury of two former Schuylkill League girls cross country champions on its roster with junior Amber Carroll and senior Schuyler Schmidt.

However, it is the Lady Raiders' depth that could put them over the top as they approach the league and District 11 championships later this month.

The Raiders placed eight runners in the top 12 to sweep their double dual meet with Blue Mountain (22-35) and Weatherly (15-50) Wednesday afternoon on their home 3.1 mile course on Stadium Hill.

Jim Thorpe's Shane Edwards flashed a huge smile on his face.

And no, it didn't come after being told he had just run 37 times for 225 yards and three touchdowns to help his Olympians defeat Shenandoah Valley last week.

The big grin actually came well before the contest when he had a conversation with his head coach.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Roy Halladay finished his warmup tosses and stood on the mound, waiting for a commercial to finish so he could resume working on his masterpiece.

Nothing could deter Halladay in his postseason debut. Not the long television breaks. Not the rain in the early innings. Not the best-hitting team in the NL.

Halladay threw the second no-hitter in postseason history, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in Game 1 of the NL division series on Wednesday.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – The Flyers had the Stanley Cup in their arena. They saw it hoisted, passed around, shaken in celebration – and then packed on a plane headed toward Chicago.

This season, the Flyers want to be the team drinking from the Stanley Cup.

Scoring goals has been no problem for Tamaqua this season, with one exception.

After 180 minutes of soccer, the Lady Raiders have yet to find the net against Blue Mountain.

In their first meeting back on Sept. 11 at Orwigsburg, the Lady Eagles stunned the defending District 11 Class AA fall champion Raiders, handing them their first loss by a 3-0 count.

A game-time rainstorm hit for the rematch Wednesday afternoon, and the teams slogged their way to a soggy scoreless deadlock in a Schuylkill League Division I battle on Stadium Hill.
