MAKING THE CUT – THE KRAMER SISTERS
It’s hard enough for just one family member to move on to college athletics, but Sarah and Emilie Kramer have both made this accomplishment. Sarah finished her soccer career at Penn State Altoona and Emily is just beginning her swimming career at Lycoming College.
Sarah stated that the hardest transition that she had to go through heading from high school to college was, “Balancing my classes with missing classes for soccer.” Emilie echoed that, stating “I would agree with Sarah. Balancing school and swimming [was the most difficult part].”
TIGERS CLAW INDIANS, 68-51
Herding cats is never an easy thing as CV discovered on Wednesday night. Many fans on both sides came out to see the North Penn-Mansfield Tigers tangle with the Cowanesque Valley Indians for the semi-final game of the Northern-Tier League showdown.
The 19 and 3 Indians are, by all standards, an amazing team with an outstanding season. The Indians have also been the NTL Champions for the past two consecutive years. The Indians are loaded with talent with big guns like Tyler Melko and Bryant Painter. For the Tigers to go on the road to Westfield and come home with a win is no small accomplishment.
LAUREL HEALTH – RESCUE YOUR RESOLUTIONS
This time of year, people are still working through their New Year’s health resolutions. But as January slips away, it can get increasingly harder to keep those resolutions going strong. When it comes to sticking to a healthy new routine, registered dietitian and diabetes educator, Kim Steinbacher, suggests keeping goals small and simple. It’s easy to “fall off the wagon” when making big resolutions and expecting lightning fast results. However, small changes to our daily habits—such as increasing our portion of vegetables at dinner or going for a walk during our work break—can lead to permanent, sustainable lifestyle changes.
