Dalton leads girls to silver medal

Thursday, October 30, 2014 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

The Emmaus' girls cross country team already has the winner of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference's Most Valuable Player award in junior Katie Bacher.

If the conference also gave out a Rookie of the Year award, that would likely go to an Emmaus runner as well.

Freshman Abigail Dalton continued a stellar freshman postseason last week by taking fourth place in the District 11 Class AAA Championship race in Bethlehem.

Dalton led the Hornets to a second-place finish as a...

EHS teams compete for EPC titles

Friday, October 17, 2014 by The Press in HS Sports

Three Emmaus varsity teams played in Eastern Pennsylvania Conference championship games Thursday.

The Hornet boys soccer team beat Liberty 2-1 for the title, while the girls volleyball team was swept by Parkland and the Emmaus field hockey team fell to Stroudsburg, 1-0.

See next week's Press for coverage of those games and last week's EPC Cross Country championship.

Stroudsburg upsets EHS in field hockey title game

Thursday, October 23, 2014 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Over the first 45 minutes of last week's Eastern Pennsylvanie field hockey championship game, both teams had some scoring chances, but neither could capitalize.

Finally, with 12:03 left in the game, Stroudsburg's Jennifer Bukowski sent a shot from the top of the circle that bounced through Emmaus' defense and got past keeper Tori Laczo for the game's only goal.

The win gives the Mountaineers the league's first title trophy and keeps the Hornets without a league title for the...

Patterson qualifies for PIAA tourney

Thursday, October 23, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Kelsey Patterson has been a district golf champion. Counting this season, she has been to the regional stage three times in her career. Only one thing was missing from an otherwise remarkable careera trip to the PIAA tournament.

That all changed a week ago.

Patterson, who was one of three Emmaus golfers competing at regionals, qualified for the final spot in the state tournament by shooting a 9-over par 81 at the PIAA Class AAA Girls' East Region Golf Championships last Tuesday...

Emmaus takes first EPC title

Thursday, October 23, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON in HS Sports

The Emmaus boys soccer team had to endure two yellow cards within the first 10 minutes of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference finals, but it was able to walk away with a 2-1 win over Liberty and the inaugural EPC gold medals around their necks.

Goals by Parker Landis and Greg Lind and one of the more acrobatic saves you could ever expect to see from a goalkeeper were the key components in the win.

Landis scored the game's first goal on a penalty kick, with 35:07 left in the...

Offensive line leads EHS to another win

Thursday, October 23, 2014 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Before the season started, Randy Cuthbert got some funny looks when he told people his offensive line would be better than last year.

The Hornets had graduated everyone. Not just interior linemen, but tight ends and receivers, too. This year's team has fresh faces up front from sideline to sideline.

But Cuthbert, who took over the team in late spring of 2013, knew the players that would take over in the trenches had been in the weight room all offseason. He knew how close they...

Dalton places fifth at EPC XC Championship

Thursday, October 23, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

At four feet, two inches, Emmaus freshman Abigail Dalton was the shortest runner on the winner's stage that featured the top 12 finishers of last weeks' Eastern Pennsylvania Conference (EPC) Cross Country Meet. If not the shortest, she was one of the smallest of the entire 114 girl runners.

But Dalton was one of the top conference runners last Tuesday at Bethlehem Municipal Park. She placed fifth with a time of 19:46.8 to lead the Lady Hornets to a third-place finish as a team.


Parkland sweeps Emmaus in volleyball championship

Thursday, October 23, 2014 by CJ HEMERLY in HS Sports

Coaches never want to hear the saying "it was just nice to be there," but in the case of head coach Gwen Millets and her Emmaus girls volleyball team, they still took the positives out of a 3-0 loss to rival Parkland in the inaugural East Penn Conference final.

The Green Hornets were defeated 25-13, 25-22 and 25-18 last Thursday evening at Whitehall High School, but still looked at some of the good things that happened moving forward.

"It was an honor that we were able to play...

EHS girls take third at EPC XC Meet

Thursday, October 16, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

The Eastern Pennsylvania Conference cross country season officially came to a close with Tuesday's league meet at Bethlehem Municipal Park.

Amongst the top of the girls' team finishers was Emmaus, who finished in third place as a team. Freshman Abigail Dalton led the Lady Hornets with a time of 19:46.8, roughly 20 seconds behind first-place finisher Raisa Kochmaruk of Liberty.

"I didn't really know where I was for the whole race until a half of a mile near the end," Dalton said...

Volleyball tops PV in first round of league playoffs

Thursday, October 16, 2014 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Emmaus advanced through the first round of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference girls volleyball tournament Saturday with a win over Pleasant Valley.

The No. 3 seed Hornets consistently went to their three top hitters to bear the No. 6 seed Bears 25-27, 25-29 and 25-21.

Emmaus' Mackenzie O'Brien (15 kills), Megan Forstburg (nine kills) and Erin Stanton (nine kills) did most of the damage.

"They can put the ball just about anywhere they want," said Pleasant Valley head...
