CHS sixth

Friday, November 16, 2018 by KATIE MCDONALD in Sports

Catasauqua High School’s cheerleaders placed sixth in the Game Day Division of the Colonial League Cheerleading Competition last Wednesday night at Catasauqua High School.

“For our first year in competition, it was a really good experience,” said Catty head coach Mikesha Calhoun, who is assisted by Nikki Treiber. “There is a learning curve for us.”

The Rough Riders just missed placing by five points.

“They hit their stunts really well and their energy was at an all-time high for them,” Calhoun said. “I had to leave and cry.”

Friday, November 16, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Catasauqua’s Amy Huber was ready for her recent powder puff clash with Northampton, but she and her teammates were caught a little off guard.

With the game at Northampton, the host Konkrete Kids instituted a new 7-on-7 format instead of the traditional 11-on-11 among some other changes in the format.

The Roughies battled, but they fell in the high-scoring, 62-44 clash on Nov. 4.

Pete’s Top-10: More D-11 titles on the line

Thursday, November 15, 2018 by PETER CAR in Sports

With district titles handed out last week in various District 11 sub classifications, this weekend presents the showdowns that really count.

Freedom and Emmaus square off in must-see TV at Northampton Friday night and Bethlehem Catholic and Saucon Valley tango yet again at Nazareth on Saturday. With Becahi coming in as favorites over the Panthers, Friday’s 6A championship should be one for the memory books between two teams that have played the best football all year.

It’s only fitting that a gold medal is on the line.
