Lady Trojan's Thanksgiving Project Print E-mail
Tuesday, 25 November 2014

On Saturday November 15, members of the North Pocono Lady Trojans basketball team volunteered their time to the Commission on Economic Opportunity’s annual Thanksgiving project at the former Sunshine Market in Plains Township. They helped fill and distribute baskets that contained items for Thanksgiving dinner to hundreds of low-income and disabled families in need. The girls wanted to make sure that regardless of someone’s economic or physical situation, they were able to have a traditional Thanksgiving meal with their families.

Men of Troy Win 2nd Tournament Print E-mail
Thursday, 02 October 2014

The Men of Troy won its 2nd tournament of the season while besting the 7 team Wallenpaupack JV Tournament on Saturday, September 27, 2014. The Men of Troy finished with a record of 4 wins, 1 loss, and 1 tie on the day earning them 13 points. While an undefeated Lakeland team finished in 2nd place with a record of 3 wins and 3 ties earning them 12 points on the day's competition.

Matt Zero won the tournament's Golden Boot Award for scoring 3 goals on the day. Two of them in the final match against West Scranton. He was also the Men of Troy representative for the All-Tournament team.

Twenty-two MOT players participated on the day and all got plentiful playing time. Coach DeRenzis stated, "It was an overall team effort that enabled us to win this tournament championship. Each of our 3 goalkeepers played two games and combined only allowed 1 goal over 6 matches. It was a team win in every sense of the word!"

Hopefully the Men of Troy will build steam from this tournament championship that will catapult them into the 2nd half of the season.

The Men of Troy will next play on the hill this Tuesday against Division 1 leader Valley View. Kickoff is slated for 4:15! Please come out and support our NP Men of Troy!

NP Boys' Win Kotula Kick Off Classic Print E-mail
Tuesday, 02 September 2014

 

NP Boys Soccer

The 3rd time proved to be the charm as the MOT held off a stubborn and dangerous Western Wayne Wildcat team in winning the 2014 Jamie Kotula Kick Off Classic Soccer Tournament championship on Sunday night, August 31 by a final score of 1-0. Junior Ben Stivala scored the game-winning goal in the second half.

The past two seasons have found the MOT "always the bridesmaid..." as the team made the final, but lost consecutive years to Holy Cross in the championship match. But the MOT would not be denied this season as it beat Dunmore (4-0) and dispatched Holy Cross in sweet vindication (5-0) on its way to face the Wildcats in the final.

The season is far from over, but a solid foundation has been laid with a quick 3-0 start to begin the soccer season. One of several team goals was realized in winning the Kotula Tournament, now the MOT find themselves pressing to gain its next team goal as it finds its focus on "one game and one training session at a time!"

MOSCOW - North Pocono’s Rifle Shooting team recently received a big boost to its long term sustainability when it was presented with a check for $20,000 at the February School Board meeting. The grant was presented to Coach Anthony Carito and members of the shooting team by the lake Region Longbeards Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation. The grant, one of only four awarded to youth shooting programs in Pennsylvania, came by way of the NWTF from the MidwayUSA Foundation and will be used to support an endowment fund for the shooting team. By using the interest the endowment generates, the shooting team will be able to support more shooters every year.

Trigger Time
“Six years ago we had twelve kids on the team, now, we’re seeing sixty kids come for tryouts,” said Carito. While he pointed out that the board approves a budget for the team every year and that it does include the costs for ammunition, Carito bases that budget on the amount of kids the team currently has. “Ammunition is our largest annual expense,” he added, “this will help allow more kids to shoot.”

The team shoots in ten matches a year as well as tournaments. If members do well in the season, they can move on to state level competitions. Add in the daily practices that start in mid-November and can go through February, and that means a lot of rounds go down the range. Practices held in the depths of the middle school typically start right after school and can last for hours. Those that do make the team put in the time. While there’s no shortage of dedication among the team or coaches, ammunition can come at a premium. Improving means shooting more and shooting more becomes an expense.

Surprise Gift
While other grants the shooting program has procured in recent years, such as those from US Shooting, were applied for and secured by the team, this grant came as sort of an unexpected windfall. Mark Davis, the NWTF chapter president, was instrumental in securing the grant. He explains that this was a top-down driven program and was made known of the initiative to help youth shooting programs by the regional director, Ray Smith. Davis also applauded the school board and the community for its continued support of the shooting sports program.

Due in part to years of contributions to conservation and shooting safety in the local area, the Lake Region Longberads were in good position to wage a case to the NWTF to get the award. Throughout their 22-year history, the chapter has been very successful with raising funds and executing programs in cooperation with land management agencies; the PA Game Commission; and other local organizations that promote youth programs. An upcoming fundraiser dinner on March 29 at Fiorelli’s in Peckville hopes to generate some more income for the chapter so it can continue to support programs such as its annual youth hunting camp and turkey calling competitions.

Out With A Bang
While the Trojan shooters ended the season with a 3-6 record, they made some notable accomplishments as well. Senior Ryan Worsnick scored a team high of 99/100 points in the December match against Berwick. Worsnick’s fortune was bittersweet for the Trojans as they ended up dropping that match 566-564 to the Bulldogs. Justin Gensil, another senior posted a 98 versus Southern Lehigh, another hard pill to swallow as well as that too was a team loss. Along with Gensil, senior Aaron Humic represented North Pocono at the League All-Star match.
Worsnick, Gensil, and Humic were the only three seniors on the team this past season, following in their footsteps are eleven juniors, five sophomores, and three freshmen who will benefit greatly from grants such as the one from the NWTF.

“We had a tough season,” Carito explained, “weather and school closings took away from a lot of our practice time. Our kids shot well and we had some close matches. We had a big win against Stroudsburg. They are a strong team every year and that was a good win for us. We have a lot of talented kids coming up and should have a good season next year.”

Each year the Friends of the National Rifle Association hold an annual fundraiser. Half of the money raised stays in Pennsylvania. This year Pennsylvania is on track to raise close to $800,000 for the shooting sports. The North Pocono Rifle Team would like to give a special thanks to the Friends of the National Rifle Association for granting the team over $5,000 to help strengthen the program by purchasing new equipment as well as grasping the interest of new student athletes in the shooting sports.
