Under the Lights


Our Under the Lights feature takes a look at one local athlete or team and shows who they are on and off the playing field. Watch our past stories below:

10/28/11 Brady Forney, Warwick Football
No doubt this season the Warwick football team has faced some adversity. The Warriors battled through injury after injury. Some players muscled through those injuries on Friday nights, while others adapted to new roles. The team really did prove its name every week, and one player asked to get out of his comfort zone was Brady Forney. We find out a little bit more about the wide out, who transforms every time he puts on a helmet.

Athlete(s) of the Week: Emma Rissinger and Ryan Bertrando


Warwick Seniors Emma Rissinger and Ryan Bertrando receive the "Athlete of the Week"nod. 

 Rissinger in the L-L Semi-finals
The week of October 17 was certainly a great week for Warwick athletics, both the field hockey and the soccer team won league gold, and they did it by winning against some old rivals. So its no surprise that when it came down to choosing the "Athlete of the Week" this week, it was a tough decision, when I wanted just to nominate two whole teams. But two seniors have definitely stepped up this season for their respective teams.

Warwick field hockey's Emma Rissinger is definitely one to always step up in clutch situations for her team.  In this past week alone, Rissinger not only scored the winning goal against Penn Manor in Championship game (she also scored that great goal against the Comets in the regular season), she is a threat from all areas on the field.

Bertrando celebrating after goal against Township
To the pitch where midfielder, Ryan Bertrando, also stepping up to the task. The Warrior fought hard in the battle against Hempfield for the league crown to win the fight in the middle third;  and got the start his team needed against Conestoga Valley by netting a goal within the first couple of minutes of play.

Both teams won its first league crown after a significant drought.

Our Under the Lights feature takes a look at one local athlete or team and shows who they are on and off the playing field. Watch our past stories below: 

10/12/11 Wiegand Sisters, Manheim Central Volleyball

Manheim Central has been killing it on the courts this year. And for two players you can say volleyball is in their blood. Renee and Lauree Wiegand are the last two of the Wiegand clan to hit the courts with older sister Rochelle, graduating from the Baron nation last year. These girls can run the show on the court, and as you'll see have a love of the game and for their family that has no equal.

Athlete of the Week: Anthony Brown

CV's Anthony Brown becomes the L-L's leading rusher after his performance against Solanco. 
Brown runs for 3 TDs against Solanco

Conestoga Valley running back, Anthony Brown takes the crown for "Athlete of the Week" after his week 6 performance against Solanco. During the game he rushed for 329 yards and score 3 TDs and becomes only the second L-L back to rush for a 300 yard game.

Brown has not only impressed during that game, but during the entire season. He retook the lead from Solanco's Joe Welk and is now once against the L-L's leading rusher after Friday's performance. The junior is just shy from the a 1000 yard mark, running for 975 yards with ten trips to the endzone.

Brown and the Bucks will be back in action this Friday against Manheim Central at home.
