Parkland tops Emmaus in D-11 volleyball title match

Thursday, May 29, 2014 by PETER CAR in HS Sports

A fourth time in a row as defending district champions wasn't the charm for Emmaus last week, as the Green Hornets fell to rival Parkland in the District 11 Class AAA volleyball championship in four games 25-19, 20-25, 15-25, 19-25.

Winning the first game of the series put Emmaus back down memory lane of their recent title frenzy, but Parkland proved to be the better team in the next three games, sweeping in deciding fashion to push the Hornets into a runner-up battle against District...

Lady Hornets fall on controversial call

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Lehigh Valley Conference has provided a lot of great moments over the years, so it's a shame that the final play in the history of the conference is one that is shrouded in controversy and could go down as one of the worst calls in LVC history. That call resulted in a 1-0 loss for Emmaus, handing the Parkland Trojans an LVC title.

Pitchers Olivia Marcks and Morgan Rentzheimer battled through six innings of shutout softball and Rentzheimer set down Emmaus in the top of the seventh...

Schlegel's teammates join him for trip to Ship

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Last May, Scott Schlegel was the only male member of the Emmaus track and field team to qualify for the PIAA Track and Field Championships at Shippensburg University.

This year, he will have some comrades to join him, the four members of the boys' 4x800 meter relay team.

The squad, comprised of Kevin Waterman, Greg Jaindl, Jordan Frank and Ryan Paradise qualified for the trip to Ship with a time of 8:01.22 and a second place finish at last week's District 11 track and field...

Boys lacrosse eyes rematch; girls season ends in districts

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Easton boys lacrosse program has not been kind to Emmaus over the last two weeks. The Red Rovers boys team won a heartbreaker against the Green Hornets, 6-5 in the Lehigh Valley Conference semifinals two weeks ago.

But after a 17-4 thrashing of Nazareth in the District 11 quarterfinals last week, the Emmaus boys hoped for some revenge on Easton in the upcoming semifinal matchup Tuesday. That game was played after Press deadlines.

"I think we were motivated by our poor play...

Volleyball beats WVW in first round of districts

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Prior to a potential District 11 Class AAA semifinal clash against Northampton, the team responsible for ending Emmaus' run in the Lehigh Valley Conference volleyball playoffs, the Hornets first had to take care of business against Wyoming Valley West.

And after a close first game, the Hornets were able to do just that during last week's quarterfinal matchup.

The No. 2 seed Hornets saw No. 7 seed Wyoming Valley West get to within 24-21 in the first game, and after they captured...

EHS baseball team falls to Parkland in LVC title game

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

Even though Emmaus made it to the Lehigh Valley Conference finals, one had the feeling that there could be trouble at almost every turn for the Hornets. Consider that in a 15-0 win over Allen in the penultimate game of the season, ace Josh LeMaster wasn't as sharp as he has usually been. Factor into that a season-ending loss to Freedom and the pessimists in the crowd had something to hang their hats on going into the LVC playoffs.

The Hornets swarmed all over opportunity in the LVC...

Emmaus girls send three relays to states

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by TYLER TUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

The name Hanna Brosky has appeared in multiple result sheets, newspaper articles and has been announced plenty of times while she occupyied the top of medal stands.

It was her time in the 400-meter dash at last week's District 11 track and field meet at East Stroudsburg South High School that will have Brosky's name etched in the record books.

The Emmaus senior ran a 56.53, breaking the previous District 11 meet record of 56.90, held by Alyssa Lombardo of Saucon Valley since...

Kids oust Emmaus from LVC tourney

Thursday, May 15, 2014 by PETER CAR in HS Sports

To say that Deb Schlosser was disappointed in her team's effort Monday night in the Lehigh Valley Conference volleyball semifinals would be an understatement.

The Green Hornets were swept by Northampton 24-26, 13-25, 19-25 to crash out of the LVC title race.

Parkland and Northampton will square off for the title Wednesday at 7 pm at Liberty's Memorial Gymnasium, which leaves a sour taste for Emmaus.

"It would be fair to say I'm disappointed with how we played," said...

EHS softball headed to title game

Thursday, May 15, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

On a couple of different occasions in the Lehigh Valley Conference semifinal game against Liberty on Monday, the Lady Hornets could have simply gone into a shell and let their bid for the school's first LVC championship die. Instead, they battled and put themselves into the conference final against rival Parkland with a 5-4 win over the Hurricanes.

Things really started badly for Emmaus when Rachel Brown allowed two runs to score in the first three batters that she faced. After...

Hornet relay teams shine at LVC Meet

Thursday, May 15, 2014 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

There are three different relay races in a track and field meet. At the high school level in Pennsylvania, there are the 4x100, the 4x400 and the 4x800 meter relay.

The Emmaus girls track team earned medals in all three relay events at last week's Lehigh Valley Conference track and field meet held at the Zephyr Sports Complex at Whitehall High School.

The most successful of all the squads was the 4x100 meter relay team of Annae Wetherhold, Chanel Boothman, Amber Blunt and Devyn...
