Volleyball reaches title game

Thursday, October 17, 2013 by PETE CAR in HS Sports

Things don't always work out as they're planned in sports, but in Monday's Lehigh Valley Conference volleyball semifinals, that certainly was the case.

Emmaus battled through some early struggles to knock off Bethlehem Catholic (25-21, 22-25, 25-19, 25-13) in four games, while Parkland moved through Central Catholic in a clean sweep to pair the two suburban rivals in tonight's LVC championship at Dieruff.

Emmaus head coach Gwen Millets was happy to see her team pull away from...

Thursday, October 17, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Only three girls golfer could move on from last week's District 11 Class AAA Tournament to this week's PIAA East Regional. And two of those three players are Emmaus High School students.

Both moved on and played in Tuesday's regional tournament. (See next week's press for coverage of that event.)

Emmaus wins fourth straight

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Two weeks ago Wyl Miller was held to only 36 yards rushing against Easton.

Saturday night against Northampton, Miller surpassed that total in three attempts.

The junior running back rushed for 132 yards on 10 carries and was instrumental in an Emmaus 49-28 victory over Northampton (0-5,0-6) at Nazareth's Andrew S. Leh Stadium that was more of a blowout than the score indicates.

Coming in to the game Miller needed only 86 rushing yards to amass 1,000 for his career and he...

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

After Monday's win over Allen the Emmaus girls volleyball team moved one win away from clinching a spot in the Lehigh Valley Conference playoffs. The Green Hornets got a three game sweep over the Canaries, 25-8, 25-4, 25-7 at Emmaus High School.

Emmaus (13-1 overall, 11-1 LVC) reached the conference finals a year ago, and is in prime position to reach the league's final four tournament, needing a victory against Dieruff on Wednesday or Central Catholic Thursday. The Green Hornets and...

Emmaus field hockey remains undefeated

Thursday, October 10, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

When the field hockey season started, you could pretty much figure that the road to the Lehigh Valley Conference championship would have to run through Memorial Field and things are playing out just as predicted.

At 15-0 overall and 12-0 in the LVC, Emmaus is again at the top of the standings as it prepares for next week's LVC tournament and beyond. While a recent 9-2 win over Northampton was good, coach Sue Butz-Stavin believes the Konkrete Kids exposed some things that need to be...

Hornet harriers prepare for postseason

Saturday, October 5, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

It might be redundant to say a cross country season is more marathon than sprint. But it rings true for this year's Emmaus High School harrier teams, both of which have been improving all year and gearing up for the postseason.

The girls team headed into Tuesday's final regular season meet with a 7-1 record.

"We are where I expected to be," said head coach Dan Wessner.

Emmaus has a solid top two with sophomore Kate Bacher and senior Hannah Brosky, who finished 33rd and...

Saturday, October 5, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Easton Red Rovers entered their game against the Emmaus Green Hornets undefeated and averaging 36 points per game.

After it, neither of those statistics remained in tact.

Last Friday night at East Penn School District Stadium, Emmaus (3-2, 3-1) defeated Easton (4-1, 3-1) by a score of 14-7 in a very physical game in front of the largest crowd at EPSD Stadium this season.

Head coach Randy Cuthbert was pleased his team held the Red Rover offense to seven points.

Saturday, October 5, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

What was one of the most dominating weeks for Emmaus field hockey wrapped up Monday night with coach Sue Butz-Stavin getting her 800th career win in a 12-0 romp over Freedom. Senior Ashley Moxey and freshman Meredith Sholder each scored four times in the win over Freedom.

The historic win came on the heels of a 2-1 win over powerful Penn Manor on Saturday night, a good 10-0 win over Bethlehem Catholic and an impressive 8-0 win over Liberty to start the week, which Butz-Stavin called...
