If the Jim Thorpe Lady Olympians volleyball team would have played with the tenacity they showed in the third game against Tamaqua the outcome may have been different. The Lady Raiders however, fought through the scrappy Thorpe run in the last game to blank the Lady Olympians in straight games.

NW has strong showing

CENTER VALLEY - The DeSales University Centaur Invitational give runners a good early season barometer of where they stack up against some of the best competition in the eastern part of the state.

Some area runners and teams found out they're right where they want to be heading into the heart of the dual-meet season.

Northwestern's Tyler Stelmack took seventh place overall at DeSales. Northwestern's girls, led by top-15 finishes by Erica Sarnicky and Haley Yost, placed second as a team at DeSales.

bob ford/times news Khaaliq Lynch of Jim Thorpe (19) escapes from a Line Mountain defender and heads upfield for a 64-yard kickoff return in the first quarter.

In a game that featured nearly 100 points and 1,000 yards of offense, it seems absurd that a defensive stop made the difference.

But talk to Mark Rosenberger and Mike Carson after Line Mountain's 62-32 win over Jim Thorpe Saturday, and they would be the first to admit that wouldn't sound crazy at all.

After a first half that had both teams going up and down the field, both coaches knew whichever team could keep the other out of the end zone first would have the upper hand.

Unfortunately for the Olympians, it wasn't them.
