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...

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.

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.

ACC can't slow down Davidson

Thursday, October 16, 2014 by CJ HEMERLY in HS Sports

Senior running back Andrew Davidson always wants the ball in his hands. He has been relentless in his rushing attack all season, but he took it to another level last Saturday night.

With teh team already missing senior running back Wyl Miller for the remainder of the season, Davidson's complimentary tailback Kyle Boney was also limited in the game because of injury, but the Emmaus run game did not skip a beat.

Davidson carried the ball 39 times for 318 yards and four touchdowns...

Rivals join to help Red Card for Cancer

Thursday, October 9, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

While the Emmaus and Parkland soccer teams were battling against each other in their two regular season games this season, they were also playing on the same team in helping raise money and awareness for cancer research.

More specifically, the two teams were helping 2011 Emmaus grad Andrew Schaefer, who is fighting Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Schaefer has somewhat of a bond to both teams, since he played under both Emmaus coach John Cari and Parkland coach Patrick Birns when the two were on...
