John D'Abruzzo's feature on Deer Lakes baseball:
"The past two seasons ended the same way for the Deer Lakes High School baseball team -- with quarterfinal losses against Riverside in the WPIAL Class AA playoffs.
That meant the Lancers could only sit back and watch as the Vikings went on to capture back-to-back PIAA championships.
"When we lost that game to Riverside last year, we knew we had a good team because we were only two outs away from staying in that game," senior Adam Fredley said. "Coming into this season, we knew we would have the talent and believed if we worked hard enough we could compete again.""
