The Eagles have turned their last few games into a pair of key Suburban One American wins.
Thursday looked as gloomy as the rest of the week to Norristown softball coach Jon Kandrick. The field resembled a lake after two straight days of rain, which would force the Eagles inside for another stir-crazy day of hitting in cages, running on mats and stretching. "There's only so much you can do inside," Kandrick said. "You don't mind doing it once a week if need be, but to have to do it four days a week for the past three weeks is a nightmare." Thanks to the efforts of Fran Tomlinson, his grounds crew and a water pump, the Eagles saw the sun by the afternoon, and turned the next two days into a pair of key Suburban One American wins. The Eagles defeated Upper Merion and Cheltenham to move to 2-1 in the league. Gwyn Botley starred …

The Norristown boys beat Coatesville 67–62.
The Norristown boys varsity basketball team defeated Coatesville 67-62 in the second game of the PIAA playoffs Tuesday night. “I’m very proud of my boys tonight," said Norristown head coach Mike Evans. "They stuck in there, and this was a very good win for us.” When asked about the next round, Evans replied “We’ve got more work to do and we’ve got allot ahead of us.” Continuing the momentum was the name of the game here, and the Norristown boys did just that by consistently executing plays and maintaining composure through the entire game. Senior Aaron Webb led things off with a quick basket a minute into the first period, with Coatesville senior Will Shuler returning. Norristown senior Jahquan Hargrove broke away with an assist by senior …

The Eagles have been the Suburban One champs three years running
On Feb. 10, in a match up versus North Penn, the Norristown boys varsity bowling team clinched first place in the Suburban One Division. This is their third consecutive title in as many years. They now qualify to move on to Eastern Regionals in March. The boys did it in style, rolling three games over 1,000 for the third time this season. North Penn kept it close in game one, but Norristown eventually swept the match 4-0. Each member of the team bowled 600 or above, with Matt Grayauskie topping the team with a 279 high game and a 689 series, and A.J. Ferrizzi close behind him with a 257 high game and 680 series. Chris Shock, with a 243; John Mil, with a 236; and Zac Holak, with a 227, rounded out the team for the big win. The JV boys …

The Eagles take stock of their current strengths and weaknesses and look ahead to a stronger more cohesive team
In a year about learning and evolving, the Norristown Area High School girls' basketball team has worked in winning. At 6-3 through the early part of the schedule, the Eagles' necessary switch to a team-centric approach has generated some positive results – a year ahead of schedule. "Next year's team is supposed to be the more mature team that will start doing some damage," assistant coach Kevin Towns said. "We're young and trying to understand the game and each other. We're growing together." The 2009-10 squad featured 5-foot-11 forward Natasha Matthews, whose dominating inside presence helped mask an inexperienced supporting cast. Her departure to Division III Gwynedd-Mercy College – with fellow Norristown High graduate Byrn Cotteta – …
