The longtime Emmaus field hockey coach was unique among the group of 14 that were honored at the Holiday Inn in Breinigsville.
The group included eight former star athletes and six coaches. But of the six, Butz-Stavin is the only one who is still coaching.
“To be honored by such a distinguished group and to be part of the first class in District 11 is quite an...
For the Catasauqua boys’ basketball team, it truly is a process.
The Roughies lost their second all-time leading scorer and returned a team with a handful of seniors and a promising group of sophomores.
As a result, time will tell.
Catty entered this week without a win in their first four games of the season. They have dropped games to Nazareth (80-34), Bangor (73-47), Palmerton (82-54), and Salisbury (63-49).

The Pen Argyl Green Knights brought their 3-1 record to Catasauqua High School for a varsity girls basketball game between Colonial League foes.

The winds of change are going to hit the area soon.
In a little over a week, fall will turn to winter. But there is a change on the local sports scene that could come blowing in too.
Local athletic directors certainly have a Christmas wish list to hang on the tree when it comes to football scheduling — and it appears that wish is going to come true.
According to a league representative who wishes to remain anonymous, the Colonial League and the Schuylkill League are in...
Driving along Mauch Chunk Road last week, I couldn’t help but notice that some of the harvested corn and soybean fields on both sides of the road had small ponds of skim ice on them from the below freezing temperatures we had. That brought to mind that the ice fishing season is forthcoming.
For those who never tried walking-on-water, ice fishing can be fun if dressed properly. Cold weather and time spent standing on ice requires insulated waterproof boots, layered coats and pants, or...

Remember in Batman how Commissioner Gordon used to shine that big bat signal in the sky to summon Batman to his office? In this case, it wasn’t a bat signal, it was a Phantoms logo and it wasn’t Commissioner Gordon doing the summoning, it was coach Gordon – Scott Gordon – being alerted to trouble in Philadelphia. And oh dear, Gordon brought his sidekick Carter Hart (too bad his first name isn’t Robin) with him for the trip down the turnpike to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
