Mounties beat PV in softball

The story on Stroudsburg’s 7-6 victory over Pleasant Valley in softball didn’t make it online so here it is in blog form. STROUDSBURG — Kat Liedberg never doubted her teammates.

Bertola leads Spartans, Stroudsburg’s Battle heating up and PM West boys on a run

Here’s my basketball notebook that ran in Thursday’s paper: Notre Dame of East Stroudsburg girls basket­ball coach Frank Bertola ex­pected his team to go through some growing pains early this season. That’s only natural after four starters graduated from the most successful team in school history, one that reached the District 11 Class A title [...]

PV showed tons of character

Two days later and I still can’t believe the fight Pleasant Valley’s softball team put up Thursday night. Trailing 7-0 after two innings of the District 11 Class AAAA final against Easton, the Bears rallied to finally tie the game at 8-8 in the sixth before the Red Rovers scored a run in the seventh [...]

Breaking my silence
