Photo Gallery, Video Highlights: Neshannock tennis teams in Pink-Out event


Neshannock came up a bit short yesterday.

The Lady Lancers dropped all three singles matches in a 3-2 WPIAL Section 2-AA match at Pearson Park in the Coaches vs. Cancer Pink-Out event.

“It was just a tough match,” Lady Lancers coach Chuck Dess said. “I thought we competed really hard; they’re a veteran team.

“The score doesn’t indicate how well we played. I thought the girls competed really hard. We still have an outside shot at the playoffs and we’re going to put this one behind us.”

The doubles tandems of Maria Acosta/Cecelia Weingart (No. 1) and Arti Anna Ribarevski/Erin Warvell (No. 2) posted victories for Neshannock (6-4, 7-4).

Blackhawk won the first meeting, 3-2, also sweeping all three singles matches.

Following are the results:

1. Juliana Lapek (B) def. Gabby Giangiuli 6-0, 6-0.

2. Analise Zapadka (B) def. Meg Johntony 6-0, 6-2.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
