Fritzinger earns gold at EPC golf tourney

Wednesday, October 5, 2016 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Emmaus senior Sam Fritzinger knows exactly what it feels like to be a champion. The former Eastern Pennsylvania Conference girls golf champion and a two-time district winner was once again the favorite heading into last week’s EPC Golf Championships.

She put forth a performance that left no doubt why she’s become the area’s top female golfer in the high school ranks.

Fritzinger captured her second straight EPC title last Monday at Bethlehem Golf Club with a round of 79. She finished 16 strokes ahead of the next girl finisher, teammate Belle Keopraseut with a score of 95.

It didn’t take long for Salisbury to get its first real test of the season. Last Fridays’ 19-5 loss to Northwestern, last year’s district runner-up, sent the Falcons to .500 after two weeks.

But fast-forward to week three in the Colonial League football schedule, and Salisbury has an opportunity to get back on the winning track. Wilson (0-2) will host the Falcons (1-1) on Saturday afternoon for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff.

Wednesday, September 7, 2016 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Through two games this fall, the Emmaus boys’ soccer team has yet to score a goal. Despite that scoreless stretch of 180 minutes, it’s hard to imagine that head coach John Cari isn’t a bit satisfied with his team’s start.

In the season opener against rival Parkland last Friday, Emmaus played to a draw against the host Trojans in the teams’ first of two Red Card Cancer games that help raise funds and awareness for those dealing with the disease. It’s the fourth year Emmaus and Parkland have joined together for the cause.

The Emmaus girls soccer team is preparing for season No. 2 under head coach Sarah Oswald. The Lady Hornets’ play over the summer was a solid indication that the upcoming fall season figures to be a successful one under the former Hornet All-American player.

Emmaus suited up two teams in this year’s Lehigh Valley Summer Soccer League at Lehigh University.

In Group A, the Lady Hornets 1 team was made up of senior players, half of the sophomore class and a few incoming freshman.

Wednesday, July 13, 2016 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Bryan Hamscher, President of the Western Lehigh United Soccer Club, had a vision for the Emmaus-based club that he thought would elevate it to the next level. In mid-April, he made a few moves to push the club in that direction.

Three members were named as part-time administrators to the club that continues to expand with players across the area and from as far away as Scranton. George Crampton has been named the club’s technical director, while Eric DiFulvio and David Weitzman are the club’s new directors of coaching.

The Emmaus boys’ basketball team is in the midst of its final week of the Stellar Summer Basketball League. But through 10 games, the Hornets have rarely been at full strength on the court. The same could be said for most other teams in the league.

The Hornets were once again dealt with that obstacle during last week’s slate of games, including a rival showdown with Parkland on Wednesday. Without star point guard David Kachelries, Emmaus (6-4) dropped a 65-37 decision against the Trojans at Parkland High School.

Several former Emmaus High School athletes had successful season in college sports this spring.

Broksy took seventh place in the 500-meter run at the Patriot League Indoor Championships. She also helped the 4x400 relay team place eighth at those same championships. Brosky earned All-East accolades as a member of the 4x800 relay team at the ECAC/IC4A Championships last month.
