Wednesday, November 2, 2016 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

Del Vierling has been working for three years to get to the state cross country meet.

His hard work paid off last week when he took fifth place overall to earn a trip to this weekend’s Class 3A state championship Saturday in Hershey.

“It feels great,” said Vierling. “Last year I was just out. It feels great to make it this year and do well.”

Three years ago Del Vierling ran in his first cross country league championship race. It was the first year for the new league and the first year for Vierling as a cross country runner.

He broke the top 100 in that first championship race, finishing 95th. He’s gotten a whole lot better since then. He cracked the top 20 last year, finishing 14th, and soon began training hard for his senior season.

Field hockey wins EPC title

As the final 10 minutes of the game approached, the Emmaus field hockey team needed a spark during last week’s Eastern Pennsylvania Conference championship.

Stroudsburg was doing all it could to protect the 1-0 lead it took in the first half, but Emmaus wasn’t going to be denied.

The Hornets tied the game in the 49th minute when Kira Koehler scored with an assist from Meredith Sholder with 10:48 left to play.

Just over five minutes later, Leah Zellner scored her first of two quick goals that put Emmaus in control of the game en route to a 3-1 win.
