    Following a third straight league title, Frankford baseball is left with nothing but freshmen and sophomores. Head coach Juan Namnun isn’t complaining.

    In the moments before Monday afternoon’s Public League Division A baseball contest against visiting GAMP, a Frankford player sheepishly approached a visiting reporter while holding some athletic tape in his hands. 


    Trending upward

    After an 11-0 showing in Division B a season ago, Lincoln baseball has risen back to the Public League’s top division. They plan on staying put.

    We’ve officially entered the third week of March, and wouldn’t you know it: there’s still snow covering lawns and car windshields throughout the Delaware Valley. While everybody is impatiently waiting for spring to arrive, the (hopeful) final snowstorm of the year is a perfect time to take a final look back on an action-packed basketball season in the Northeast.


    Enjoying the ride

    Despite a narrow defeat in Sunday’s Public League championship game, Northeast High School celebrates a rewarding season of girls basketball.

    Phil Monastra drew up the game plan, and his team executed it to near perfection. When the final buzzer sounded and the Northeast girls basketball team ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard, the Lady Vikings’ head coach wasn’t angry about the result.
