SCRANTON President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are scheduled to speak at the Lackawanna College Student Union, 500 Jefferson Ave., Scranton, at 4:55 p.m. Friday. The appearance in Scranton is part of his two-day bus trek through New York and Pennsylvania. On Thursday, Obama will deliver remarks at the University at Buffalo and Henninger High School in Syracuse, N.Y. On Friday, the president will participate in a town hall event in the morning at Binghamton University and then deliver remarks at Lackawanna College. The president and vice president will will lay out a plan to make college more affordable, tackle rising costs, and improve value for students and their families, according to an email from the White House Press Ofce. Obama is planning a strategy on costs so Americans can get training needed for the rapidly changing economy. A rst step came earlier this month when he signed a bipartisan bill to restore lower student loan interest rates. The president and vice president are no strangers to Scranton. Obama visited Scranton High School on Nov. 30, 2011 to deliver a speech focused on the middle class. Biden, a Scranton native, was in town on July 3, 2012 for the Scrantastic reworks display on Courthouse Square. See OBAMA | 10

NEWTON TOWNSHIP The supervisors on Aug. 12 unanimously approved a motion allowing a resident to operate an Internet-based gun sale business from his home in the township. The decision came a month after Thomas P. Tolson, of Earl Drive, approached the supervisors seeking a home-occupation conditional use permit to sell rearms ranging from assault ries to pistols. Tolsons next step is to seek approval from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, according to his lawyer, John Lalley. Tolson plans to buy the weapons at auctions and estate sales, then sell them on bidding sites like eBay. The supervisors approval came with numerous conditions as a safeguard for the community. The conditions were put in place partly because, in order to get a federal license from the ATF to sell guns over the Internet, Tolson is mandated to also have at least one person-to-person sale. My primary concern is the safety of the neighborhood, said Chairman Ronald Koldjeski. The supervisors also were concerned the person-to-person sales would increase trafc in the area, but one of the conditions says the billing and transferring of rearms must be done off the premises at a post ofce box. The other conditions are that: no advertising sign may be placed on the property; a security system including interior and exterior cameras and alarms be installed; the guns must be conned to a safe; the hours in which the rearms may be sold face-to-face are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday; and the township has the right to monitor the premises to ensure compliance with the conditions. If we can live and peacefully coexist with these restrictions then we can move forward, Koldjeski said. Lalley said his client is going to do things safely and reasonably within the law. Tolson had previously told the board he would have no more than 65 guns on the premises. That was initially going to be among the conditions. But Lalley said the township has no legal right to limit the amount of rearms kept on the property as long as Tolson is abiding by federal and state laws. See GUN SHOP | 10

Mayors find will help ring in a century


Reclaimed church bell to be dedicated this fall, kicking off Clarks Green centennial
JOAN MEAD-MATSUI
Abington Journal Correspondent

A 500-pound bronze bell that was removed from the belfry of a former local church and stored in a garage will soon help ring in a very special birthday for one municipality. The bell, which once belonged to the former Baptist Church of Clarks Green, was relocated to allow for renovations to the belfry, and was stored in a garage for years, probably since the 1970s, said Clarks Green Mayor Bill Thorburn, who recently spent as many as 30 to 40 hours cleaning the bell. I was at a meeting one night and they were talking about the bell and what they should do with it, said Clarks Green Mayor Bill Thorburn. I said, Why dont you donate it to Clarks Green for the centennial? So they agreed to it and I went down and picked it up and polished it. It was all green when I got it. Currently owned by the Waverly Masonic Lodge 301, the church was rebuilt in 1869, the same year the bell was cast by the Meneely Bell Foundry, West Troy, N.Y. The bell was donated by Waverly Lodge # 301 to the borough in memoFeDerAlly INSureD By NCUA

ry of Barton R. Earl, past master, who always wanted the bell on display, said Thorburn. Come October, it will have a permanent home along a busy thoroughfare in Clarks Green, in front of the borough building at 104 N. Abington Rd. Were going to raise the Clarks Green sign board up a little and put the bell in there, he said. Clarks Green Borough will ofcially celebrate its centennial in May. The festivities will begin in October with the dedication of the bell and a clock. A variety of activities in conjunction with the centennial are also planned. That (dedication of the bell) is going to be our kickoff of the centennial. Calendars are being printed and will be distributed to every household. It will be free of charge and will have photos of all the old buildings in Clark Green with captions, including when they were built and who owned them. Theyll go out in October with the leaf bags, said Thorburn. A centennial celebration web site will be up in the near future. For additional information regardJoan Mead-Matsui | For The Abington Journal ing activities planned for 2013 and Clarks Green Mayor Bill Thorburn recently restored the bell from the former Baptist Church of Clarks Green, just ahead of the boroughs centennial celebrations. 2014, call (570) 586-4446.

Advocacy center plans important anniversary


Abington Journal Correspondent

JOAN MEAD-MATSUI

On Friday, Sept. 6, staff of the Childrens Advocacy Center and guests will gather to commemorate 15 years of service to children, adolescents and families in our region. The event is designed to celebrate a milestone, said Elizabeth Pascal, CAC/NEPA development director and co-chair. We also want those who attend to walk away feeling as though they were celebrated as well. The community has been a huge part of growing and sustaining the CAC/ NEPA. Without the longtime support and friendship of so many members of the community, the organization would not be where it is today, and we are so grateful.

Students, under the direction of Lackawanna Trail Elementary Center art teacher Dan Demora, worked each Thursday from mid-June to Aug. 1 to complete the tile mosaic inspired by the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton. The mosaic depicts a trolley emerging from a tunnel, a conductor, and a trolley station. Members of the librarys board of directors will decide on a permanent home for the mosaic in the near future. The nearly $3,000 project was paid for by the Dalton Community Library and made possible through sponsorships from the Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the National Park Service.

Dalton hires two new police officers; council addresses zoning issue
Abington Journal Correspondent

BEN FREDA

DALTON At the Dalton Council meeting on Aug. 8, President Bill Salva, who filled in for Mayor Aaron Holzman, swore in two new part-time police officers of the Dalton Police Department, Michael Ranakoski and Joseph McCullon. I just want to welcome the new police officers to the borough, said Salva. Hopefully youll all get to meet them on a pleasant visit, and say hello to them, and certainly make them feel at home. In other business, in his safe-

ty report, board member Mark Sujkowski mentioned the zoning issue on Willow Street. He said that the cement blocks that were on the side of the road were removed but were replaced by metal poles driven to the ground. Going around the block is not a great option when there is an emergency, said Sujkowski. I feel as though we should cite the landowner and remove the obstructions so that when vehicles are parked on Willow Street, theres a much better chance of re trucks or other emergency vehicles getting down that block. Board member Jared Gard told Sujkowski that he agrees with him

but suggested council wait to give the landowner more time. Sujkowski replied that this issue has been going on for five months now. Also in his safety report, Sujkowski mentioned that he attended a meeting with PennDOT last month and that ofcials explained the nal design of the roadwork to be completed on Routes 6 and 11. Its going to start in the spring, said Sujkowski. Its going to run from the end of Clarks Summit up to Factoryville. Its going to mean repaving. Its going to mean redoing the medians. Theres going to be a lot of different work. Sujkowski, responding to a question

from board member Gus Vlassis, said the work will last about 18 months. In other news, Salva read a letter from the Dalton Fire Company documenting their proactive upgrades at the Dalton Fire Hall to resolve water issues and to make it compliant with the Architectural Barriers Act. He said that the fire company also asked to obtain part of the property in the parking lot area to build a generator in case the borough loses power. Secretary Jo Ann Davies mentioned that the board is going to need two grants to help with the fire companys plans, including the Lackawanna County Reinvest Program and the Monroe County

Local Share Account. Salva said that the Dalton Fire Company will use the blue building as compensation for the space that they need for the generator. As far as the Lackawanna County grant, our email went out to all the members of council, and the feedback that I received from those who responded, no one had any questions about us doing that, said Salva. Davies then said that she wants to match one grant against the other. Salva asked for a motion to move forward with both grant applications. Salva said the resolution would be voted upon during their next meeting.

Two Minute Warning for concert series


LAKESIDE CONCERT SCHEDULE
Aug. 21 - Two Minute Warning Aug. 28 - The Fab Three

Over the course of the last nine weeks, the Lakeside Concert Series at Hillside Park has become a mainstay for many in the Abington area, thanks in part to the support of area businesses. Diane Vietz, a member of the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board, spearheaded the idea for a 10-week concert series at Hillside Park on Winola Road. Since its launch on June 26, the concert series has become a highlight of the weekly entertainment calendar and has garnered many positive reactions from community members. Although Vietz is the architect of the series, a dedicated team of volunteers and civic groups works to make the series happen. Each week, a different civic group provides the food and refreshments for concertgoers, and this week, the Masons are providing concert fare. Along with support from groups like the Masons or the Rotary Club of the Abingtons, a different local business or group has sponsored each

concert. Everything Natural is sponsoring this weeks concert featuring Two Minute Warning. Kelly Baker, manager of Everything Natural, said the store is very involved in the community and the owners Barry Kaplan, Donna Kaplan and Michele Zezeski participate in just about every event

that takes place in the Abington area. Baker said she thinks Everything Natural would absolutely support the concert series in future years. The AAJRB gathered a group of volunteers and board members to ensure each week of the concert was successful. Tim Shefer joined the AAJRB board last year and is helping with tonights event. I denitely thought this was a good idea when it was rst proposed, Shefer said. Like other volunteers, Shefer hopes the concert series becomes an annual highlight of the Abington area social calendar. I see no reason we cant make it an annual event and do it every summer, he said. The event begins at 6 p.m. at Hillside Park, which is located at the intersection of Hillside and Winola roads in Clarks Summit.

The South Abington Township supervisors approved an $18,000 bid to replace a pipe on the curb of Sunnyside Avenue during their meeting on Monday, Aug. 12. The township supervisors chose not to use township workers for the project because of traffic control and the safety of the workers, and three bids were submitted. The low bidder, Insight Pip Contracting from Harmony, Pa., was awarded the contract for $18,320.20. Additional bids were submitted from National Water Main Cleaning Company of Newark, N.J., for $18,693 and Tri State Grouting from Newark, Del., for $23, 510. Abington Paving Company was awarded the contract to do paving in the township. In other business, Sikorka Brothers has asked for a 21-day extension to complete the ongoing sewer project because of issues with boring. The expected completion date will now be August 30. Everything must be out of the park before school starts. They can still be working somewhere else but their equipment has to be out, said Supervisor Mark Dougherty.

Approximately 80 middle schoolaged children attended the outdoor classroom that is the result of a partnership between the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board and Keystone College.

The Family Medicine Interest Group of The Commonwealth Medical College has been named a 2013 Program of Excellence by the American Academy of Family Physicians for their outstanding activities in generating interest in family medicine. This award recognizes students in allopathic medical schools who have an interest in family medicine and have met the national requirements to promote the value of family medicine and primary care and enhance student interest in family medicine. According to Perry Pugno, MD, MPH, vice president of education at the AAFP, This years awards were the most

competitive on record, with more interest groups submitting applications than any other year. The awards have been given for 15 years, and there are more than 140 FMIGs operating on allopathic medical school campuses across the nation. I congratulate our FMIG for their outstanding work in helping fellow medical students understand the vital role that family medicine plays in the delivery of healthcare, said Steven J. Scheinman, MD, president and dean of TCMC. The FMIG has helped students to understand the professional challenge and satisfaction of being a family physician and to develop the leadership skills that will serve them in their future practices and communities. TCMCs FMIG faculty advisor, Jennifer Joyce, MD, student FMIG leaders Kristina Zimmerman and Steven Aussenburg, and student FMIG members Morgan Rogers and Catherine Bradshaw were set to accept the award during an Aug. 1 ceremony of the AAFP National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students in Kansas City, Mo. FMIGs are medicalschool sponsored, student and faculty-run organization that give medical students a chance to learn more about family medicine through regular meetings, workshops, leadership development opportunities, and community and clinical experiences. The Program of Excellence Awards recognize FMIGs for their outstanding performance in organizational operation,

the surroundings. The heated, 14-by-16 foot berglass structure is needed because the screen tends to freeze in the winter, said Robert Doble, borough engineer. He said the construction is costly due in large part to electrical work that needs to be done and equipment upgrades. The authority has enough money in the general fund to cover the cost, said borough manager Mary Ellen Buckbee. Authority member Steve Swift said Perucki is prepared to get started on the work. The authority will issue a notice to proceed after it receives the companys insurance information. At the borough council meeting that followed, members voted unanimously to purchase from The Home Depot a 10-by-10 foot shed to house its mower. The cost is $749

and it comes unassembled. The shed will be placed behind the borough building on College Avenue. Grant writer Sadie Rozenburg, a member of the playground task force, said it has raised over $1,200 to go toward upgrades at the Christy Mathewson and Factoryville/ Clinton Township Joint Municipal parks. The municipalities previously applied for two grants to go toward the upgrades. The grants total $472,793 and $59,913, respectively. The municipalities hope to receive approval by late fall. The task force is also seeking volunteers. Anyone interested may contact Rozenburg at grants@factoryville.org. Council also approved the purchase of 200 yards of cinder for the winter at a cost of $3,400.

Gun Shop
From page 1 You cant make that a restriction, Lalley said. Doing so would be a gross violation that would restrict the business, he said. Koldjeski said Tolson had agreed to the gun limit at last months hearing. That doesnt mean he cant have more, though, Lalley said. In addition to the townships conditions, the ATF can conduct unannounced inspections of the property. They have a right to show up any time, Tolson said. Tolson also told the board he has no plans at this time on selling ammunition, but that could change. In order to sell ammunition, though, Tolson would have to apply for another conditional use permit, said township solicitor Joseph Sileo. About a dozen residents attended the meeting, but there was no opposition to the business. Taxpayer Jon Coons said he had been concerned about increased trafc in the neighborhood, but that issue was addressed. I have no objection to Mr. Tolsons proposal, he told the board. In response to the recent fatal shootings at a Ross Township supervisors meeting in Monroe County, Newton Township Police Chief Robert Reese will guard the entrance of the municipal building at every meeting, township officials said Aug. 12. We have to be reactive, said Ronald Koldjeski, chairman of the supervisors. The door will be locked throughout the meetings and Reese will use a handheld metal detector on any suspicious individuals before they are allowed to enter. Reese manned the door at the recent supervisors meeting and will do so from now on at the meetings of the supervisors, zoning board and planning commission. He will remain at the building until the meetings are concluded and everyone has exited. The move will not cost any taxpayer money because the board will change Reeses hours in order for him to come to the meetings, Koldjeski said.

MyGirls Cafe and Grill joining Taste of the Abingtons event

SOUTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP By the time owner Dina Muca opened the doors of MyGirls Cafe and Grill last September, registration for the annual Taste of the Abingtons event had already closed. Muca isnt missing the opportunity to join one of the areas premier food-friendly events again. MyGirls, located at 1121 Northern Blvd., South Abington Township, is one of the new vendors participating in the Sunday, Sept. 29 event at the Nichols Village Hotel and Spa, 1101 Northern Blvd., South Abington Township. Open for the last 11 months, Muca said she worked in the service industry for several years, including co-owning a similar business with her brother, Sal Santoro, in New York City. When her brother got the call to join the New York City Fire Department, the pair sold the business and she moved to northeastern Pennsylvania. The decision to open a business here was an easy one. I know what I love. I love interacting with people, Muca, a Clarks Summit resident, said. I like making people happy. Business has been steady for the past year, Muca and chef Harry Mucovse said. Thats thanks, in part, to the full service breakfast MyGirls offers beginning at 7 a.m. most days and the hot and cold sandwiches offered for lunch using Boars Head products. The eggplant and chicken mix hot paninis have been popular along with specialty sandwiches like the Uncle Toms, which Muca described as Thanksgiving on a sub. The Uncle Tom includes turkey, gravy, caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, cranberry sauce, and stufng, and its just one of about a half dozen unique menu offerings. Daily lunch specials keep the menu options as fresh as the food itself something Muca said shes a stickler for. MyGirls has been a hit with many traveling through the area, Muca said. They were recommended online at tripadvisor.com, where reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Muca said shes excited to participate in the upcoming Taste of the Abingtons as another way to give back to the community. MyGirls will often donate to local charitable events or offer gift certicates for rafe See ARTS | 12 items.

Junior Beth Cosminski is expected to step into the Lady Lions starting lineup this season.

Despite the loss of several key players, the Lakeland boys soccer team should be well positioned for another successful season. Last year, the Chiefs nished with a 8-5 record. They advanced to the District 2 Class A seminals before being ousted by eventual JaMes BLeVins state champion senior Forward Mountain View. Lakeland must replace midelder/forward Casey Albino, midelder Matt Morell, and defender Bradley Strong. The Chiefs return seven starters although two will be changing positions. Senior Scott Cortes will move from goalkeeper to defender and sophomore Graeme Nichols will move from defense to the midfield. Senior James Blevins returns at forward, senior Anthony Pawluck along with juniors Joey Snedeker and Paul Beaudoin return as midfielders, and junior Michael Tomcykoski is back on defense. Senior Cody Morcom will be the starting goalkeeper. Lakeland head coach Tom Kane also expects junior midelder/ forward Thomas Dastalfo and sophomore midelder Collin Looper to contribute signicantly at the varsity level. Kane is condent the Chiefs can contend for a district playoff spot again this season, especially if they can shore up their play on defense. He added that Mountain View will be the toughest challenge in the Lackawanna League Division 3. I think we should make a run into the playoffs and build upon last year, he said. We lose an All-State player in Albino, but hopefully with a healthy Blevins we will still nd the back of the net. We also hope to improve on defense that was our Achilles heel last season and turn some of the results around to wins. Kane believes offensive production and teamwork will be the teams biggest strengths this season. Most of the kids have been playing together and building team chemistry for the past few years, he said. Lakeland opens its league schedule on Monday, Sept. 9 at Montrose.

Abington Journal Correspondent

There is plenty of soccer play happening Saturday mornings at the new turf eld at Hillside Park in South Abington Township thanks to a pickup league that has more than quadrupled in size. Jesse Gemerson Novatski, of Clarks Summit, founded and organized Clarks Summit Pickup Soccer, perhaps better known as CSPU, earlier this year to offer soccer players an opportunity to play almost anytime and anywhere in the Clarks Summit area. Even before we started coming here, E.T. (Hunter, manager of Soccer Plus, 611 S. State St., Clarks Summit) had some street soccer going on behind the store and he text messaged me one day, Hey. If you can spread the word, were playing back here. The group started with less than 10 players and has grown to more than 50 at a time. If people werent having a good time, they wouldnt be here. Everyone here loves the sport. Were all really respectful soccer players, Novatski said. The younger guys like it because theyre getting the benet of playing with the older guys. On a recent Saturday morning, approximately 50 soccer enthusiasts ranging in age from 8 to 57 arrived, at the eld ready to play. Five teams of eight or nine played sideways on a split eld, including Raymond Ferrario, 57, and his son Christopher, 18, of South Abington. This is a nice mix of people from Scranton, Dunmore, Clarks Summit

Louis Gallo, Gino santarelli and Clay Myers jockey for possession.

and the Abington area, said Raymond Ferrario while taking a break on one of the benches. Its a real mix of ages. You see a mix of some of the really best players in the area, and the ones that are just learning. Everybody here loves soccer, added Ferrario, who would like to see additional opportunities like the pickup league developed in Scranton and other areas. This eld is fantastic. The conditions are always good no matter how much rain we have. Some of the elds are rock hard this time of year, Raymond Ferrario said. Theyre almost like concrete and you have injuries. You feel bad when you get off the eld. This is wonderful. Currently, CSPU meets Saturday mornings at 10 a.m. at Hillside Park, and Novatski expects play on that eld will continue until late August or the end of the summer, when the group will begin looking for other locations.

Joe evans, Raymond Ferrario and Yoshi Matsui take part in a CsPu game on aug. 10.

With this eld completed, were lucky enough to have permission from the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board, and with help from Mr. (Mike) Hargrove and Kuni (Matsui),

we were able to schedule a date to play here. Updated playing times and locations can be found online at www.facebook.com/cspusoccer.

The Abington Heights girls volleyball team will look to build off last seasons success while Lackawanna Trail will be adjusting to a new coaching staff. Abington Heights nished last season with a 15-3 record and lost to Delaware Valley in the District 2 Class AAA title game. The Lady Comets must replace setter Josie LaCoe, middle hitter Katherine Rosencrance, outside hitter Hannah Radkiewicz, and libero Mary Swift. Bruce Steel will take over as head coach, replacing Jamie Spangler who was named head womens volleyball coach at the University of Scranton. The Lady Comets return senior outside hitter Francesca Toth, junior middle hitter Abby McMinn, junior outside hitter Morgan Reiner, and senior opposite hitter Jennifer Page. Assistant coach Victor Glemboski also expects junior all-purpose player Liz Bamford, junior setter/outside hitter Michelle Pacyna, and sophomore setter Marissa Lewis to contribute at the varsity level. Glemboski is excited about the veteran leadership and young athletes in the program. I expect the team to do pretty well, he said. We have a lot of talent coming up and there is a lot of interest in the team. The program is on the upswing. Glemboski believes the teams biggest strength will be its teamwork. The chemistry of the team will be very good, he said. Glemboski expects Dunmore, Susquehanna and Western Wayne to provide the toughest competition in the division. Abington Heights will open its season on Friday, Aug. 30 at home against Blue Ridge. Lackawanna Trail will be led by rstyear head coach Susan Renna, who has previously coached travelling club volleyball teams for seven years. The Lady Lions nished last season with an 11-8 overall record and were defeated by Susquehanna in the seminals of the District 2 Class A playoffs. The Lady Lions must replace outside hitter/setter Colleen Brace, outside See VOLLEYBALL |14A

Lady Comets, Classics shoot for continued success


Abington Heights nished last season was a 14-2-2 overall record. The Lady Comets defeated Wallenpaupack, 5-1, in the District 2 Class AAA championship game. They were eliminated by Lower Dauphin, 5-2, in the rst round of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs. The Lady Comets must replace goalie Melanie Coles, defenders Sarah Sopinski and Heidi Frantz, forwards Alex Chapman and Paige Eisenlohr, and midedlers Katrina Helcoski and Natalie Belknap. They return sophomore forward Ally Christman, junior forward Michaelina Holmes, senior midelder Abbey Burke, sophomore midelder Emma Henzes, junior defender Perrine Wasser, and senior midelder/defender Isabelle Clauss. Burke and Clauss were named as Lackawanna League Coaches Division 1 First-Team All-Stars after last season. Abington Heights head Abington Journal File Photo coach E.T. Hunter also expects scranton Prep forward Kelly Pompey, south abington township, is one of six sophomore midelder Tiana returning starters for the Classics.

Yarns and senior midelder Adriana Dubas along with junior defender Mariah Hawley and sophomore defender Emily Bonsick to contribute at the varsity level. According to Hunter, sophomore Alyssa Scoda and senior Blair Cacciamani are competing for the starting goalie position. The Lady Comets open their regular season on Sept. 3 at Scranton Prep. Hunter has been pleased with the teams attitude during the rst week of practice. Right away, weve had good leadership from our upperclassmen, from the sophomores to the seniors, he said. We stress discipline, and if we play disciplined, our game should look pretty. Im looking for players that are condent with their rst touch of the ball and the decision making from there, and I think we have a great core of condent players. While Hunter believes a sixth-straight District 2 Class AAA is a realistic goal for the

team, he knows other teams such as Scranton Prep will be anxious to take the top spot from the Lady Comets. After winning the district for several years, other teams will be looking to take the title from us, he said. We will have to work hard. Scranton Prep nished last season with a 17-1-1 record. The Classics nished the regular season unbeaten and downed Berwick, 6-1, to win the District 2 Class AA title. They also shut out Northwestern Lehigh, 3-0, in the rst round of the PIAA Class AA playoffs before falling to Northern York, 2-0, in the quarternals. The Classics must replace midelder Bianca Chairge, who now plays for Division 1 St. Josephs University, defenders Tianna Falcone and Olivia Burke, and forward Jacquie Graham. They return senior forwards Dominica Insalaco and Kelly Pompey; senior defender Rachel Insalaco; senior goalie Gracie Jenkins; senior

midelder Elana Falcone, a Temple University recruit; and sophomore midelder Cara Grifth. Head coach Doug Knieser also expects a big group of sophomores to have an impact at the varsity level: Mary Kate Caucci at forward; Lydia Lovecchio, Jillian Paulus, and Amanda Boland as defenders; and Liz Shoemaker and Eileen Casey as midelders. Knieser believes the teams biggest strengths will be experience and depth. We return a lot of starters who have experienced a lot of success in their careers, and we have a lot of kids that can play in a lot of different spots, he said. After a deep postseason run last season, Knieser is hopeful the team will experience similar success. We want to perform well and make another run at districts, he said. Knieser expects Abington Heights and Valley View to provide the toughest competition in Lackawanna League Division 1.

Lackawanna Trail returns two senior starters: Brandi Holland as a setter and Brook Mitchell as a right side hitter. Renna expects senior middle hitter Sara Cobb, junior middle hitter Beth Cosminski, junior outside hitter Kaylah Woodcock, junior libero Nicole Martin, junior outside hitter Marissa Passaniti, and junior defensive specialist Rachel Perkins to move into starting spots this season. She also suggested senior outside hitter Ashley Purdy and junior right side hitter Krystal Thurston were expected to compete for playing time. Renna expects the team to give their best effort every day and hopefully improve throughout the season. This is a new year with a new coach and with new players, she said. It is almost like a rebuilding year. My expectations are for the girls to give me and the team 150 percent every time they come onto the court. I expect them to get better with every game and every practice.

Renna expects Dunmore, Western Wayne and Abington Heights to provide the toughest competition in the Lackawanna League.
