District 2 AAA Champions!
For the first time in their 46 year history, the Crestwood Comets football team clinched the 2014
District 2 AAA football championship defeating
Berwick, the winner last year, 35-19. Coach Myers said that he was happy for his players because
they worked so hard all year to get over the hump
and beat Berwick for the district title. Berwick beat
Crestwood last year 14-13 in a close game. In the
opening minutes of the game, Frank Aigeldinger
scored with a 43 yard touchdown. He would go on
to rush for 205 yards with 22 carries and two touchdowns. With minutes left on the clock, Jay Popson
jumped over a player to get a first down. Tanner
Kahlau then ran 49 yards down the sideline to cap
the win at 35-19. The Comets will play Bethlehem
Catholic, the District 11 AAA champions, at J. Birnet
Crum Stadium in Allentown on Friday, November
21, at 7 p.m. in the semi-final round.

Lady Comets fall
short in rematch
The Lady Comets were cool
and confident as they posed
for a picture before leaving for
the PIAA Class AA Field Hockey Championship in Whitehall
to play the District 1 champs,
Villa Marie, in a rematch of the
2012 championship game.
The team, under first year
coach Patsy Moratori, was
undefeated 13-0 in the regular
season and won the District 2
title for the 21st time.
The game was scoreless
until Crestwood took a 1-0 lead
early in the second half thanks
to a goal scored by Hunter Pitman with an assist from Lizzy
Dessoye.
With 16:30 left, Villa Marie
scored to tie the game 1-1;
then with 2:23 left, Villa Rosa
scored off the corner and took
the lead 2-1, which was the
final score.
It was an outstanding season
for Coach Moratori and the
team – the first time in school
history that the team made it
to three consecutive championship rounds. Now they will
focus on the 2015 season.

By Claudia Strycharz
Correspondent
Upon entering the new
Women’s Boutique and Consignments in Mountain Top
you are warmly greeted by
shop owner Kathy Brocca who
opened the unique boutique
on October 9.
The boutique boasts a variety of women’s items both new
and gently used. The clothing,
footwear, and handbags are
in mint or near mint condition. The large inventory of
new merchandise consists of a
variety of unique jewelry from
merchandisers from New York
and San Francisco.
An array of new items such
as sunglasses, candles, ponchos, scarves and much more
are beautifully displayed
throughout the boutique.
A convenient feature offered
at Women’s Boutique and Consignments is the on-line shopping. But, whether shopping

beautiful and unique Women’s Boutique and Consignments located in Mountain Top.
Don’t forget to thank the Thanksgiving cook
quality merchandise at value
prices is offered.
Ms. Brocca has more than 20
years experience in the retail
business as a district sales
manager for large corporations. Through her experience
she has learned how to cut out
middle men and deals with
merchandisers directly.
With so many years working

peanut butter tucked inside a tantalizing chocolate shell, available
in milk, dark or assorted chocolate. Made of the finest quality
ingredients it is perfect for any occasion and comes in seasonally
festive wrapping.
for large corporations and the
constant demands and stress
involved, Brocca decided she
needed something else to do
for herself as well as provide
a service for consumers and
at the same time improving
their shopping experiences.
She has accomplished this
with her new Woman’s Boutique and Consignments. Soon

NSP holds Animals in Winter program
Nescopeck State Park held a
special Hide-n’-Seekers: Animals in Winter program on
Thursday, November 13 for
preschoolers age 3 to 6 years
old.
The fun program was held
both in and outdoors and
included story time, crafts and
a scavenger hunt. Katie Martens, an Environmental Education Specialist from the Hickory Run Complex and DCNR,
read a story called Under the
Snow which is about where
animals go in the winter.
It was a chilly and cloudy
day, but the children had a
great time looking for items
like woolly bears, pine cones,
insects, animal tracks and
much more.

Plaksa to attend Central Michigan University for gymnastics
Wyoming Seminary senior
Gianna Plaksa of Mountain
Top, a gymnast, will continue
her academic and athletic
career at Central Michigan
University, Mount Pleasant,
Mich., in the fall.
Plaksa will compete for
Central Michigan head gymnastics coach Jerry Reighard,
now in his 30th season of
coaching the Chippewa
women’s gymnastics team.
Plaksa considered the University of Pennsylvania, Texas
Women’s University, Lindenwood University, Brown
University, Cornell University and Temple University.
She chose Central Michigan
because of the university’s
strong science programs and
small-town community environment.
“Coach Reighard works
with his team members to
help them do well in the
classroom as well as in the
gym,” she said. “During
my visit I met the team and
thought they were very nice
and welcoming. I hope to
compete as a freshman on
floor exercise and uneven
parallel bars and look to
enter the all-around competition later in my career there.”
Plaksa has been competing in gymnastics for
13 years and competes for
Northeast Gymnastics Academy in Hanover Township.
A two-time Level 9 state and
regional qualifier in 2010 and
2011 and three-time Level 10
state and regional qualifier
in 2012, 2013 and 2014, she
took third place in all-around
in state competition and fifth
in all-around in regional
competition in 2013; she was
also a National team qualifier in 2013. In 2014 she was
second in all-around at states
and ninth at regionals and
was a qualifier in the 2014
National Invitational Tournament, where she finished
ninth in the all-around.
Plaksa plans to major in
biology. She is the daughter
of Anne Plaksa of Mountain
Top and Edward Plaksa of
Exeter.
Gianna Plaksa of Mountain Top, a senior at Wyoming Seminary and a gymnast at Northeast Gymnastics Academy, announced she will continue her academic and athletic career
at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Mich. Seen

either position should contact
