The last unbeaten

Wednesday, January 13, 2016 by TODD in Sports

Salisbury guard Chad Cooperman clenched his fists and yelled out emphatically as he headed to a team huddle. That’s because seconds earlier he hit the biggest shot of last weekend’s game against rival Southern Lehigh.

Cooperman’s three-pointer from the right wing tied Salisbury’s largest lead of the game at eight points, 53-45, capping a 5-0 Falcon run that forced Southern Lehigh into a crucial timeout with under three minutes left on the clock.

Falcons edge Warriors in OT

Wednesday, December 30, 2015 by TODD in Sports

After Wilson’s Jeff Cooper scored 12 points in the first half, Dylan Belletiere’s defense was crucial in holding the Warriors’ guard to eight points in the second half and two overtime periods.

Belletiere’s offense down the stretch may have been even more vital.

Salisbury and Wilson played to a 45-45 tie at the end of regulation with just six points scored in that period, three from each side. Neither team got on the scoreboard in the first overtime session, with Wilson playing stall ball much like it did near the end of the fourth quarter.

Boys win opener

Dylan Belletiere took an awkward fall as the first half whistle sounded. Salisbury’s senior guard had rolled his ankle on the Falcons’ last-second possession.

After coming out to start the second half, the injury forced Belletiere to the sideline to get that ankle taped. When he returned to the court, he played a pivotal role in helping Salisbury avoid a scare from Blue Mountain early in the fourth quarter.

Girls fall to Dieruff

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 by TODD in Sports

With the recent success Salisbury has had against Dieruff, there was optimism for the Lady Falcons as they tipped off their season on Friday night.

But those hopes were quickly dismissed on the Huskies’ home court.

After falling into a 10-7 hole early in the second quarter, Dieruff closed the half on a 17-3 spurt to hold a commanding 24-13 advantage at intermission. Salisbury (0-1) got to within seven points early in the third, but the Huskies’ scoring avalanche couldn’t be stopped in their 50-40 victory at Dieruff High School.

Bauer chooses Broncs

It may have only been an unofficial visit this past summer, but there was a moment when Lindsay Bauer stepped on Rider University’s campus that all but sealed the deal.

“I told my parents right then and there in the bookstore, ‘I’m done. I don’t want to look anywhere else. I really like it here,’” said Bauer. “But they told me that I needed to keep an open mind and explore other places just to check things out.”

Q. What grade are you currently in?

A. I am in 12th grade at Salisbury High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. Physics because I have always enjoyed math and logic– that’s just how my brain works. I naturally think in numbers and logic in whatever I do and physics does exactly that to study the world. Almost everything can be analyzed with a logical explanation and it amazes me that we can make sense of it all with numbers, equations and calculations.

Q. Have you received any special awards or recognition?

XC runners finish off season

Wednesday, November 4, 2015 by TODD in Sports

All things must come to an end. For the Salisbury boys and girls cross country teams, their 2015 season came to a close last week.

For the first season in quite some time, head coach Doug Hensinger won’t be making the trip to Hershey to watch any Falcons compete in the annual PIAA Cross Country Championships. But despite that void, the Falcons endured a successful season which ended with last Wednesday’s district meet.
