Anthony Dee's quest to 100 wins got a lot easier as the Falcon's 126-pound wrestler earned five wins at the Falcon Wrestling Tournament on Saturday to boost his career total to 96.

Dee was named the meet's outstanding wrestler and won his weight class with four pins and a 6-4 overtime decision over Southern Huntingdon's Dison Myers in the final.

The senior wasn't the only Salisbury wrestler to post a winning record as Zach Adams won three of his five matches at 106-pounds to place fifth.

Unwelcome visitor

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 by The Press in Local News


Crew members from Western Salisbury Volunteer Fire Department respond to a citizen assist call after a tree from a neighboring yard fell into a home at 2825 Andrea Drive, shortly before 5 p.m. Jan. 31 during windy weather. Fire Chief Joshua Wells and Firefighter John Hucko are shown securing the tree to the home's deck so it would not fall into a nearby storage shed. The falling tree punctured the roof of the dwelling.
