Whitehall’s 15 Milliseconds Of Fame: The 1982 State Championship Basketball Team (Eye roll)

High School athletics are revered in Whitehall. Mostly because of the stunted intellectual capabilities of most Whitehall and Lehigh Valley citizens. It’s difficult for people around here to wrap their heads around art, classical music, literature or anything else of cultural value. But not high school sports. And this explains the article on the front page of the Morning Call’s website, celebrating the 1982 Whitehall High School state basketball champions. Check out Mcall.com. Honestly, it’s a huge, detailed article. MCall is notorious for writing small blurbs about significant news stories, but can write volumes on great moments in Lehigh Valley sports.

I’ll post more about the article, the team and the sad way they’re still honored today later. But guess who was a member of the “famed” 1982 team? Yep, you guessed it. Former Whitehall Commissioner Kyle Kern.

More to come!

    Pride of Whitehall!!!

    We’re at war, there is a presidential election and I don’t care about some high school team from thirty years ago. If there were black kids on that team MCall wouldn’t have put the story up

  4. Juliet Six says:

    Foolish story about a forgotten time that no one cares about. The LV residents now don’t care about what happened 30 years ago. Get with the program Morning Call!

    1982. Because of something that happened 30 years ago, whitehall still kisses Kern’s ass today. That’s why he was elected. Because he played basketball here as a kid
