The Emmaus golf team competed in last week’s District 11 Class 3A Championship Tournament.
The Hornets finished fourth as a team led by freshman Michelle Cox, who shot 82 for third place in the girls tournament.
For the second time this season, Emmaus boys soccer team has a five-game shutout streak going. Overall, heading into Tuesday’s Eastern Conference semifinals, the Hornets had recorded 13 shutouts, 12 wins and a tie. For head coach John Cari, that’s exactly how he wants his teams to win games.
“Anyone who knows me knows that I build a team defensively first,” said Cari. “I’m confident in what I have back there. I know they’re going to do their job. I know they’re going to stand tall and if you’re going to score, it’s going to take an effort.”
The Emmaus football team could not have asked for a better way to end its 2017 regular season home part of the schedule.
Looking for their fourth win in the five home games this year, the Hornets (5-3 overall, 3-3 Eastern Pennsylvania Conference South Division) host a tough matchup against Easton (6-2, 4-2) Friday night at East Penn School District Stadium.

When Emmaus and Pocono Mountain East met during the regular season, Hornet head coach Sarah Oswald didn’t leave the field in a good mood.
It may have been the low point of the season for her team performance-wise as it lost to the Cardinals 4-1 at Memorial Stadium, putting Emmaus in a bit of a bind as far as the standings were concerned.
Teams always want to take a shot at the target on the back of the Emmaus field hockey team. This season, no team has come closer to the bullseye than Parkland, which battled Emmaus to overtime in their first regular season meeting and then stayed tough before bowing 3-0 in the final game of the season at Parkland High School.
Trojan goalie Brie Barraco turned away 26 shots in the latest battle between the two teams and Kelsey Higgins added a defensive save for Parkland.

This Friday night at East Penn School District Stadium a matchup of two Eastern Pennsylvania Conference South Division football teams come into the game after wins last weekend, and both teams could use another victory to improve their District 11 playoff standing.
Emmaus (4-3 overall, 2-3 EPC South) bounced back from a one-score loss to Freedom with a high-scoring 55-42 win last weekend at Nazareth. Liberty (3-4, 1-4) comes to Emmaus riding a two-game win streak with victories over Dieruff and Northampton the last two games.
With playoffs set to open this weekend, the Emmaus boys soccer team appears to be heading toward the postseason with a head full of steam after wins over Northampton and Whitehall by a combined score of 9-0. The Hornets have games against Nazareth and Central Catholic to wrap up the regular season. After that the Hornets will await official word of who they’ll play in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference playoffs, which begin Saturday.
