HONESDALE, PA — In this time of the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic, sports of all sorts are in limbo: the Summer Olympics have been postponed until 2021, professional sports are on indefinite hold and scholar-athletes are cooling their heels until they get the signal that the threat of the coronavirus has passed.
In an effort to keep the spirit of local high school sports alive, the River Reporter is presenting a series of retrospective flashbacks from recent events, including two recent girls’ varsity basketball games at the Home of the Hornets.
On January 20, Honesdale’s Lady Hornets took on the Lady Trojans of North Pocono High School. The game was covered in a story titled “Lady Hornets edged by North Pocono” published on January 30.
On February 3, the Lady Hornets hosted the Lady Buckhorns of Wallenpaupack High School. The story titled “Lady Hornets’ swishes come true” was published on February 13.
This version focuses on previously unpublished photos from the event, so in a sense, in the words of Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again.”
And in the words of Jim McKay, long-time host of ABC’s Wide World of Sports, a chance to relive “the constant variety of sports… the thrill of victory… the agony of defeat… the human drama of athletic competition.”
