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...

Bacher, Brosky, Schlegel earn gold

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

Katie Bacher was the top seed heading into the girls' 3200-meter run at last week's Lehigh Valley Conference track and field meet held at the Zephyr Sports Complex, which made her a little nervous as she is only a sophomore.

"I'm not used to this," Bacher said of being the top seed. "I didn't know what to expect when I found out. I just thought it was crazy. It felt like everyone was coming for me."

The rest of the field tried to catch her, but was unsuccessful as the Lady...

Emmaus earns top seed for league playoffs

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

Emmaus got a surprise from Freedom on the final day of the regular season, when the Patriots rallied in the top of the seventh to beat Emmaus 7-5. The loss was just the second of the season for the Hornets, who go into the Lehigh Valley Conference tournament as the top-seed.

Earlier in the season, a loss to Easton that ruined the Hornets' hopes of a perfect season, refocused the team and the loss to Freedom may serve as the same reminder that no team in invincible. At 12-2, 17-2,...

EHS volleyball takes out Freedom in three games

Thursday, May 8, 2014 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

When the Emmaus boys volleyball team defeated unbeaten Parkland two weeks ago, momentum started to shift in the Hornets' favor. Three wins later and the team finds itself atop the Lehigh Valley Conference and in great position to claim the number one seed in the league tournament next week.

The Hornets maintained their momentum with a 3-0 win against Freedom last Thursday night at Emmaus High School by scores of 25-18, 25-21, and 25-21. It was their fourth straight victory.

Baseball wins big game

Thursday, May 8, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

A big 2-1 win over Parkland on Monday has the Emmaus baseball team on the verge of clinching the top seed in the Lehigh Valley Conference Tournament that begins next week. The Hornets need just one win in their final three games to clinch the top spot. With remaining games against Allen and Dieruff, who have a combined mark of 1-19, 4-24 on the season, finding a win shouldn't be too difficult. The final game of the season is against Freedom (7-4, 9-6).

Jack Moore threw a complete game...

Trojans earn LVC top seed with boys lacrosse victory

Thursday, May 8, 2014 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Heading into the final quarter of an important Lehigh Valley Conference boys lacrosse game last Friday afternoon, Emmaus trailed by just a goal, 5-4. But Parkland had more possessions and took advantage of them, tallying three fourth-quarter goals and outscoring Emmaus 3-1 to win the contest 8-5 and secure the number one overall seed in the conference tournament, which begins Thursday. The Green Hornets will be the number two seed and will face Central Catholic in the semifinals.

Girls lax falls to Parkland

Thursday, May 8, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

During their first matchup early in the high school girls' lacrosse season, Parkland took a quick 3-0 lead over Emmaus. The Lady Hornets were able to respond from that deficit and tie the game on a number of occasions, including at 11-11 with less three minutes to play, before the Lady Trojans pulled away.

The rematch last week saw the Lady Hornets in a familiar situation, facing a quick 4-0 deficit. Unlike last time, the Lady Hornets never recovered from that early Trojan onslaught...

Hobson, FitzMaurice fall in finals to Pleasant Valley duo

Thursday, May 8, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

For the second season in a row, the tandem of Rowan Hobson and Matt FitzMaurice came up short in its bid to win the District 11 doubles tournament. Last season, a team from Parkland stood in the Hornets way and this season, it was Jon White and John Walmach from Pleasant Valley who notched a 7-6 (7-3), 3-6, 6-3 win in Monday's finals, held at Lehigh University's Lewis Tennis Center.

The big question coming into the match was the health of FitzMaurice, who had suffered a hamstring...
