The Emmaus wrestling team went 2-2 at last weekend’s Whitehall Duals Wrestling Tournament.

The Hornets were the No. 11 seed in the 16-team bracket and lost to No. 6 East Stroudsburg South in their first match, 46-27. They bounced back to beat Catasauqua 54-24 in the losers bracket and followed that with a 40-30 win over Southern Lehigh to advance to the ninth-place match.

Emmaus lost its final match to Quakertown, 61-15 to finish 10th at the event.

The Hornets also competed in a nonleague match last week against Delaware Valley Regional of New Jersey and lost 41-24.

The Hornets are back on the mat Wednesday evening when they travel to Pocono Mountain West. They travel to Liberty on Saturday to face the Zephyr Dual champion Hurricanes and then host Northampton next Friday night.

The following are results from the Zephyr Duals that were available to the Press, along with last week’s nonleague match.
