Wednesday, April 3, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Jordan Dardis knows this season will be special.

Now a senior, Dardis has seen enough of the broken promises of the past and is ready to take the next step in the program's future this spring. One of the initial steps to success this season was a 10-0 shutout over Palmerton in the team's opener.

Trexler, CHS look to avoid slow start

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Jeff Trexler is among the seniors on the Catasauqua baseball roster who all realize that time might not be on their side.

Trexler and his teammates are well aware of their team's 0-8 start last season that eventually salvaged aspirations of a Colonial League and district playoff bid. The Roughies did rally late in the season.

Beginning this week, Catty had a 0-2 record and a Wednesday afternoon meeting with Pen Argyl signaled the start of a busy remainder of the 2013 campaign...

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Catasauqua senior Zac Bradley wasn't overly concerned with his team's 17-2 loss to neighboring Northampton in their season opener.

For Bradley and his teammates, it was simply a matter of interpreting the meaning o f the opening game for both teams.

"We looked at it like a scrimmage," stated Bradley, who figures to be a major contributor in the Roughies' pitching plans this spring. "We certainly don't take a loss lightly, but that was the first time we were outside all spring....

Girls ready to get going

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Catasauqua's Paige Kogelman and her teammates have been anxious for too many weeks.

In fact, it was nearly four weeks before the Roughies opened their season with a game against Palmerton Wednesday afternoon, after Press deadlines.

During that time, Catty had one scrimmage and their usual season-opener against Moravian Academy was rescheduled due to their opponent's school holiday schedule. It has been a long time coming for the season to get underway.

Boys want fast start

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

On paper, Catasauqua head baseball coach Steve Bradley believes his club could be a contender in the Colonial League this spring.

Problem is, his club needs to address those intangibles that plagued the Roughies most of last season when they began the year with a 0-8 start and then battled their way back to respectability.

"We had too many errors, too many men left on base to name a few," admitted Bradley. "At the start of the season, we also had problems with our pitchers...
