The Lehighton Indians are ready to kick off the winter sport season tonight, December 2nd, at Palmerton High School. Both boys and girls basketball teams will face Palmerton away and look to sweep. Indians wrestling waits for their season to start early next week. The Indians are eager and ready to get into the depths of the 2022-2023 winter sport season.

Like past years the Indians will play Palmerton in a girls-boys double header. The boys will play their game at 7:30 pm at Palmerton High School. This season the Indians hope to change the result of last season and beat the Bombers. They will arrive on the court tonight with a very different team than last season. Coach Miller says, “although we are young, we have some very talented newcomers”. This fresh varsity team does return with Sr. Luke Blauch and So. Joe Roth.

Coach Berezwick has hopes of a “competitive year in the league and a spot in the District Playoffs”. The team faces a loss of a 1000 point scorer but intends to fill her shoes well. Key players returning to the varsity court this season are Sr. Taylor Bowman, Jr. Charli McHugh, Sr. Katie Wojton, and So. Emma Repsher. A freshman player to watch out for this year will be Olivia Serfass.
