Wednesday, June 15, 2016 by SCOTT PAGEL in Sports

After struggling last season in the Lehigh Valley Connie Mack League, Catasauqua returns 12 kids from last year’s team and is looking to make some noise in the competitive league.

The team got off to a quick start, winning five of their first seven games as of last week.

Catty also features some familiar names for those who followed this year’s young varsity team, which just missed making the District 11 playoffs.
