The Emmaus golf team could be pretty tough to beat this season.

The Hornets return most of last year’s line up from a team that went undefeated in the regular season, won the District 11 Class 3A and title and missed out on an email title via a tiebreaker.

“I think we’re going to be really strong,” said head coach Mo Bryan.

Her team returns two-time EPC girls champ Michelle Cox at the top of the line up. Heading into her junior season Cox, a two-time regional qualifier, is a team leader in search of her first district gold.
