Wednesday, April 24, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Lacrosse is a novel sport in the Lehigh Valley. Only eight schools in the Lehigh Valley Conference have boys' lacrosse programs.

In Emmaus, the Green Hornets have a seasoned roster as they have competed scholastically since 2001. That history has given them advantage against their competitors as they have more experience.

Oh, and they can play a little too.

Through Monday the Green Hornets possessed a 4-2 record in the LVC and a 11-2 record overall. Head coach Scott...

Wednesday, April 10, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

So far this season, the Emmaus baseball team is clicking on all cylinders.

JV's Hinkle tosses first perfect game

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

If you're a young pitcher from Emmaus High School, it's not easy to get recognized.

The varsity team has a strong bunch of pitchers and doesn't really need much help right now. But JV pitcher Trey Hinkle might have come up with one way to put himself in the back of varsity coach John Schreiner's mind though - a perfect game.

"Hopefully [the varsity coaches] notice, but they've got good pitching there, so I don't know if they really need any help," said Hinkle after his perfect...
