LV Christian-Lehighton

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Things weren't actually going to well for Palmerton on Monday in its Colonial League baseball matchup against Notre Dame of Green Pond.

The Bombers spotted the Crusaders a five-run lead in the first two innings, but with ace Tyler Svetik on the mound, all they needed was to wake up their bats and they knew they had a chance to get back in the thick of things. And that's just what they did. The end result was a 9-6 win that lifted them to 4-6 overall, but more importantly 4-3 in league play.

mike Feifel/times news Lehighton's Josh Kern prepares to make a throw to first after forcing out Northern Lehigh's Kris Seiler at second base.

Earlier in the week, the Lehighton baseball team suffered an upset loss to East Stroudsburg North. While they rebounded well with a win against ES South, the Indians appeared to be on the verge of another upset loss Saturday.

Down a run in the bottom of the sixth inning Darren Wanamaker's grand slam, however, sparked a six-run inning that propelled the Indians to an 11-6 victory over Northern Lehigh in non-league action.

Pielmeier now part of Bomber history

Karl Pielmeier never got a chance to experience the home crowd cheering him on.

Unlike his peers at Palmerton High School, Pielmeier faced all of his scholastic competition on the road.

That's one of the disadvantages you deal with when you're an athlete without a team and a swimmer without a pool.

Even though he never got a chance to compete at Palmerton High School, Pielmeier made sure he will always be a part of it.

HAMBURG – As a member of the Hunter's Specialties professional staff of hunters, Harrisburg native Matt Morrett has the opportunity to hunt spring gobblers throughout the United States.

In addition, Morrett has won the World Friction Championship five times, the Grand National Championship once and the U.S. Open Turkey Calling Championship seven times. As impressive as his resume is, what he emphasises when giving seminars, like the one last year at the Cabela's in Hamburg, is that there is no need to call like a champion to get a gobbler into range.
