Bauer lives out dream at Rider

Thursday, March 26, 2020 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

When Rider University senior and 2016 Salisbury High School graduate Lindsay Bauer looks back on her career, she can do it with a smile. That’s because for the last eight-plus years as a track and field athlete has lived out her dream of competing at the highest of levels.

“It’s been quite the ride,” said Bauer. “And I just want to say thank you to Rider and Salisbury, and to my parents, for letting me jump around, play in the sand, and live out an absolute dream.”

If winning is fun then Bauer had a great time playing in the sand.

Falcon field hockey beats Freedom 2-1

Thursday, September 5, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

The Salisbury field hockey team started off its 2019 season on the right foot.

Playing their season-opener against a Freedom team that got the kinks out in a game the day before, the Falcons went on the road and defeated the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference team on the Patriots’ home turf, winning 2-1 Saturday morning in a nonconference game at Freedom High School.

After going 10-9 overall last season, starting off the season with a win is just how the Falcons (1-0 overall) wanted it to go. And it all began with hard work in the offseason.

Errors hurt Falcons in loss

Thursday, June 20, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

The Salisbury legion baseball team got off to a nice start to its 2019 regular season, winning two of its first four games and tying another. But last Friday evening the Falcons had a hard time both in the field and at the plate as they fell to North Parkland 2-0 at Salisbury High School.

The Falcons (2-2-1 overall) did not record a hit, made three errors and had a rough outing overall, but it’s not what has epitomized the season thus far. The two-time defending league champions have a different look to them this year and it has been an adjustment.

Falcons start 5-0 in summer basketball

Thursday, June 13, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

The Salisbury boys basketball program had an uncharacteristically short end to its 2018-19 season last year, having fallen short of postseason play after being a perennial District 11 and Colonial League championship contender.

But if the start of a new athletic calendar year is any indication of how the Falcons will do in the upcoming 2019-20 season, confidence should be high for head coach Jason Weaver and his team.

The Salisbury Connie Mack baseball team experienced some setbacks in 2017. But the team bounced back and had a winning season in 2018.

The Falcons had a 12-7 overall record and qualified for this year’s league playoffs. They were the number nine seed and fell to number eight seeded Balliet Vikings, a team primarily consisting of Central Catholic players, 8-0 in the first round last Monday evening at Sammy Balliet Stadium in Coplay.

Reichenbach picks URI

Friday, November 24, 2017 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

Salisbury High School senior Jack Reichenbach has followed in the footsteps of family members before him.

Older brothers Dan and Brendan had successful high school athletic careers at Salisbury, with Dan competing in basketball and track and field and Brendan basketball and golf. Jack was always around for their games and events, and over the past two years made his own mark as a Falcon athlete.

Last Thursday afternoon at the Salisbury High School library, Jack signed his letter of intent to the University of Rhode Island for track and field.
