Catty gained its third shutout of the year Wednesday night, and has outscored opponents 166-83 this season. They now take an 18-5 record into Thursday's District 11 2A softball championship after a 3-0 win over North Schuylkill.

Two to play for Northampton

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Chemistry, according to head coach Mike Bodnar, will be among one of the key ingredients toward the success of the Northampton entry in the Northampton County Legion (NORCO) this summer.

Bodnar believes it is highly possible, mainly due to the merger with Lehigh Township's team this year. With both teams suffering depth problems throughout last year's season, the newly formed Northampton teams should loom as a favorite in the hunt for the postseason.

"We decided to merge the...
