Wednesday, June 19, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

After just nine wins in the last two Lehigh Valley Legion seasons, Emmaus' first-year head coach Mike Anderson is looking to rebuild the program's once-proud tradition.

After struggling in the season's first two games, Emmaus has played five competitive games through Monday night's 4-2 loss to Northern Valley, but is still just 2-4 heading into Tuesday's doubleheader against Salisbury.

"It's a work in progress," said Anderson. "I've got some guys playing positions that don't...

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

Through the first eight games of the Lehigh Valley Legion season, Lower Macungie manager Mark Sterkenberg believes that his team simply hasn't hit its stride. With a 4-4 record, the team sits in the middle of the pack one week before the league squares off against the Schuylkill-Berks League All-Stars in the annual competition.

"Right now, some of our big horses just aren't hitting," said Sterkenberg after his team dropped a 10-0 decision to Salisbury. "Once some of these guys start...

Saturday, June 8, 2013 by PETER CAR in HS Sports

The run for Emmaus' volleyball team finally came to a halt over the weekend, as the Green Hornets fell to Pennsbury in the PIAA Class AAA quarterfinals in three games, 26-24, 25-16, 25-16.

The Hornets (15-5) felt as if their campaign ended prematurely, but that is the nature of competition once a team advances that far into the state bracket.

"I think once you play as well as we have towards the end of the year, to see the season come to an end is disappointing for anyone,"...

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

Baseball coach John Schreiner just wrapped up his 16th season at the helm of the Emmaus Hornets and it turned out to be a disappointing endeavor. Emmaus fell to Stroudsburg 8-5 in the District 11 playoffs.

The Hornets made four errors in the game and grounded into four double-plays, that cost them at key points in the game.

"Trouble fielding the ball again and we left too many outs out there again," lamented Schreiner. "It's been our problem all year and then when our pitching...

The Emmaus softball season came to a rough end when Parkland used a six-run fifth inning and a two-run sixth inning to break open the meeting of the two rivals in the District 11 quarterfinal matchup, grabbing a 10-0 win.

The two teams battled through the first four innings, with Parkland pushing across two second-inning runs, but collecting just a hit and a walk outside of that inning.

Parkland's fifth inning opened on a somewhat controversial note. Pitcher Morgan Rentzheimer...
