Freeport Repeats in 2-A by Knocking Off Top-Seed Beaver
November 5, 2016
The Freeport mindset heading into Saturday's championship match was “refuse to lose”.

November 3, 2016
The #1 seeded Freedom Bulldogs got two goals each from sophomores Michaela Watkins and Myla Sharpless to defeat #2 seed Freeport 4-1 Thursday night at Highmark Stadium to capture the 2016 WPIAL 2A Girls Soccer Championship.  Freedom entered the game undefeated, having given up only 8 goals all season, none in the playoffs, and continued their unbeaten streak with a stifling defense and opportunistic offense that saw 4 goals scored on only 7 shots on net.  Michaela Watkins started the scoring at the 30:54 mark of the first half as she took a lead pass and broke in alone on Freeport keeper Cassie Suran, beating her with a quick shot to make it 1-0 Freedom.

WPIAL Alum Q&A – Brendan Lynch
October 24, 2016
Brendan Lynch was a special athlete in his time at Freeport High School, and now Lynch is proving to be a special player at Case Western Reserve University. Formerly a three-sport standout for the Yellowjackets, Lynch is enjoying a prolific senior campaign as a receiver for the Spartans. Before he made his mark in the college ranks, Lynch was well known throughout the Alle-Kiski Valley for his efforts on the gridiron, hardwood and track. He was a four-year letterwinner in track and field, while garnering letters in three seasons for both football and basketball. He was also a three-time All-County selection in hoops.

MSA Sports Friday Night HighLights for Week Four
September 24, 2016
When it comes to arithmetic, I am at about the same level as Jethro Bodine from the famed Beverly Hillbillies. It's all about 'Gozintas'. If you are left scratching your head at the first sentence, let me explain. three Gozinta six two times. Four Gozinta 24 six times. And so on and so forth. Last night around the WPIAL, high school football teams were putting up numbers as if they were playing Techmo Bowl (pre Madden for you youngsters) instead of actual football on actual playing fields. The first Autumn Friday of the season saw scoreboards lighting up like it was a Christmas tree on the first day of winter. Needless to say, the more points scored, the more players were 'Gozinta' the end zone.

Although the performance was far from perfect, the Freeport Yellow Jackets maintained their perfect record on the campaign with a straight-sets triumph against the Derry Area Trojans. Freeport prevailed against its section adversary 25-21, 25-18, 25-20. As a result, the defending champions improved to 5-0 in Class 2A Section 5, while the Trojans dropped to 2-2.

From that point forward, though, the Yellow Jackets found another gear, and outscored the Trojans 9-5 to close out the opening set.
