Special to The Press
After a thrilling series of victories in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference and the District and State playoffs, the Viking and Vikettes’ basketball seasons concluded last week. The Vikettes were defeated in the 4A Quarterfinals by Lansdale Catholic, while the Vikings also fell to Neumann Goretti. The Allentown Central Catholic High School community is beyond proud of all your achievements!
The ACCHS 2023 Winter Sports Awards were held March 21, with the swim and dive team, basketball teams, wrestling and cheerleaders honored. Varsity letters and pins were distributed and each team named an MVP.
However, this past winter was filled with many accomplishments for all our student athletes. This year’s EPC Scholar Athletes were Mimi Norris from girls swim and dive, JT Heinze from boys swim and dive, Madi Szoke from girls basketball and Griffin Patridge from boys basketball. JT Heine and Madi Szoke were then both nominated for The Morning Call Athlete of the Week.
As spring temperatures begin to climb, Central athletes are also warming up for another exciting spring sports season. Good luck to boys and girls lacrosse, softball, baseball, boys tennis and track and field.
A college planning night is scheduled 6-8 p.m. April 13 in Masson Auditorium. The evening will entail a summary of Central’s college planning resources, a college representative panel, break out sessions, National Collegiate Athletic Association eligibility, paying for college, Reserve Officer Training Corps and other important information.
Registration is open through the link in the online weekly newsletter.
