    We deserve it!

  • Luke Lewis Hickory's Lewis, Slippery Rock's Campbell grab gold at PIAA Championships

    SHIPPENSBURG — For Luke Lewis, the issue wasn’t whether or not he would be standing atop the PIAA pedestal following Friday’s shot-put competition; rather, if he would etch his name as the all-time commonwealth kingpin.
    Hickory High’s Lewis’ pursuit of the PIAA Class AA shot-put record (Bethlehem Catholic’s Joe Kovacs, 64-10 3⁄4, 2007) fell shy, but he nonetheless garnered gold during the opening day of the annual PIAA Track & Field Championships.

  • SPORTVIEW: Cleveland Browns are cursed - by bad management

    EXCUSE ME if I don’t join in the huge hype surrounding Johnny Manziel. You have to figure if the Cleveland Browns drafted him, he’ll turn into a bust.
