Keller’s two tallies beat FHS

Thursday, September 6, 2018 by TODD KRESS in Sports

In head coach Jane Brennan’s first season, the Salisbury field hockey team took steps forward. Finishing above .500 in the Colonial League and qualifying for the district tournament last fall was a solid start.

But the Falcons’ most impressive accomplishment under Brennan may have came in this season’s opener.

Salisbury, now 2-0 in the early going this fall, opened up with a 5-4 overtime victory over last year’s District 11 Class A champion Moravian Academy last week. The Falcons followed that up with a 2-1 victory over Freedom on Saturday morning at Salisbury High School.

Falcons find players to fill needs during summer league, tourneys

Head coach Jason Weaver knows what his incoming senior class brings to the table. Sean Snyder has been running the point guard position for years, and Tommy Sylvester is a returning three-point specialist.

Weaver saw them both take steps this summer, along with returner Kahleel Foster and other varsity regulars, but what was most impressive in June and July was what some lesser-known players showed their head coach. A number of underclassmen played key roles in supporting those seniors to a 5-6 record in the Cedar Beach Summer League.

Jack Reichenbach was always destined to be a jumper. He was around it throughout most of his childhood.

His father, Dan, was a district record holder at Salisbury for 30 years and an All-American at Moravian. His oldest brother, also named Dan, is a district record holder and Salisbury High School record holder who jumped at Lehigh University. Jumping is in Jack’s blood.

Crouthamel led softball team to new heights

Lilia Crouthamel’s first passion has always been softball. But when her mom offered to buy her a new bat if she took up tennis, she couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

That not only got Crouthamel a shiny new aluminum softball bat, but also introduced her to a racket and tennis ball at a young age. It blossomed into a memorable high school career in both sports, culminated by the Salisbury Press’s Female Athlete of the Year award.

Salisbury beats Lower Mac to reach Legion championship

Friday, July 20, 2018 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Salisbury beat Lower Macungie last Tuesday to advance to the Lehigh Valley Legion semifinals against North Parkland.

No. 2 seed Lower Mac squandered 10 runners on base, and top-seeded Salisbury capitalized on those wasted opportunities. The Falcons used a six-run fourth inning to pull away from Lower Mac and end its season last Tuesday, 8-1, in the Lehigh Valley Legion playoffs.

Salisbury goes 0-3 at A-Town Throwdown

Thursday, July 12, 2018 by TODD KRESS in Sports

One common theme throughout the summer has been Salisbury’s inability to lock down defensively and come up with key stops when it needs to. That issue resurfaced this past weekend.

The Falcons went 0-3 on Friday and Saturday at the SportsFest “A-Town Throwdown” basketball tournament. A common issue in their tournament-ending 41-31 loss to Hershey was the defensive play.
