EHS golfers head into postseason
The Emmaus golf team wrapped up the regular season last week with a win over Stroudsburg. The win gives the Hornets the regular season Eastern Pennsylvania Conference title with a 14-1 record in league play.
“We’re a pretty strong team,” said Hornet senior Connor Wambold, a three-year varsity player. “We lost some players last year but we have some freshmen that can play pretty well.”
The win over Stroudsburg came just two days after the Hornets suffered their only loss of the season. In their penultimate match of the regular season, Emmaus took on Parkland at Iron Lakes and fell by one point to a Trojan team that saw the majority of its players shoot the best rounds of the season.
“They had some guys come up with some low scores,” said Jake Cavelry, a four-year varsity player for Emmaus. “They did what they needed to do.
“This will definitely be a motivator and one to look back on as something to inspire us to play well in the future hopefully.”
The Hornets moved on to this week’s Eastern Pennsylvania Conference Championship Tournament Tuesday at Woodstone. (See next week’s Press for coverage).
Wambold and Caverly will be part of the league tournament team, along with
Michelle Cox, Luke Lanzone and Sean Jaeger.
The Hornets’ last league title came in 2014, while they won district titles in 2014 and 2015.
Players who have a low enough average to qualify will move on to next Monday’s District 11 qualifier at Olde Homestead with hopes of reaching the District 11 Championship Oct. 10 at Lehigh Country Club.
