Nazareth against Stroudsburg and Pocono Mountain East against Northampton. What a night for high school wrestling!
Both matches were filled with excitement and well into the bouts, both matches were tied! The enthusiastic crowd cheered on.
Nazareth pulled away from Stroudsburg about three-quarters of the way through the match with a couple of well-placed pins. The other match, however, went down to the last and final bout. Northampton was leading by three points going into the final matchup. The crowd was stirred into a frenzy as the final and deciding bout began. The decision went to East and they won the match 31-30!
Even the winners looked worn out on this night!

A cold and blustery day was the setting for Pleasant Valley’s second baseball games of the season. It seemed more like fall football weather instead of spring! In the photo above, Adam Raseley is tossing his bat toward the dugout after he walked at his at-bat.
The weather did not stop the players from putting their game on the field. Here, Adam Raseley is throwing a ball he gobbled up on a grounder to record an out. Jordan Caffrey is playing first base. The PV infield was strong all through this game!
Here, Travis Van Houten is eying up a pitch coming into his zone. PV strung together some good hits and capitalized on some costly errors made by Northampton. PV stayed on top to earn the victory and go 1-1 in the early 2013 season.
Third baseman, Austin Yoffredo, is throwing to 1B to secure another out on defense.
James Shank worked a count deep and received a base-on-balls twice in the late innings.
