EHS boys lax has plenty of upperclassmen

Thursday, March 29, 2018 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in Sports

The Emmaus boys Lacrosse team has been among the top teams in its league and District 11 since the sport was introduced at the varsity level. This year’s Hornets will once again look to compete for titles despite losing several key players to graduation after last year’s season.

Here’s a look at the Hornet boys lacrosse team heading into the 2018 season:

Last year’s record: 13-9 overall (8-5 EPC)

Key losses to graduation: Tyler Corpora, Brady LaBar, Konnor Haldeman, Blake Speicher, Gabe Vansuch, Ricky Milker, Jared Baker, Ryan Fritz, Kyle Carraher, Zac Flecksteiner, Johnnie Williams.

Key returning players: senior Hunter Krause, senior Zack Higgins, senior Nate Hannis, senior Corbin Carraghan, junior Devon Boyko, senior Brent Meilinger, senior Bennett Nakao, junior Sabino Basso, senior Jarod Lichtenwalner, senior Josh Babbit, senior Trevor Calse, senior Gavin Glogowski, senior Jake Miller, senior Shane Miller, senior Chris Schmitt, junior Sam Conway, junior Liam Gilley, junior Levin Sarver, junior Ryan Thomas.

Outlook: Lost a talented senior class, but features an upperclassmen-laiden team once again. The Hornets will look to contend with Parkland and Easton for Eastern Pennsylvania Conference and District 11 championships.

From the coach: “I’m thrilled to be back at Emmaus where I played under Scott Ketcham. I like the energy that the program has. Since I’ve taken over, all I’ve really been focused on is changing the attitude. We’re trying to develop a brotherhood from the freshmen all the way up to the seniors, and show that there’s no difference, you’re just a member of the team. Everybody knows what I expect, it’s just about going out and getting it done,” — first-year EHS head coach Desi Gonzalez. “
