Falcon finish season against explosive Spartans

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

It's hard to believe, but the Salisbury football season is nearing its end.

For a season that began in late September against Bangor, the Falcons will suit up one last time for the 2013 campaign on Friday night.

While the team is looking to end the season on a high note, the Falcons (2-7) will travel to play one of the league's top squads in Southern Lehigh (8-1). The Spartans' only loss came against Catasauqua in the second week of the season, and they've reeled off seven consecutive victories to sit atop the Colonial League South Division.

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

If people weren't familiar with Salisbury freshman Ethan Heydt heading into last week's District 11 Class AA boys soccer quarterfinals against Blue Mountain, they sure know who he is now.

Heydt tallied three goals for the No. 4 seeded Falcons during their 5-0 victory over the No. 5 seeded Eagles of the Schuylkill League last Thursday evening at Salisbury High School.

Gonoude wins D-11 gold medal

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Heading into the cross country season, Salisbury head coach Doug Hensinger was unsure when Kyle Gonoude, who was battling a calf injury, would be able to start running again.

After missing the regular season's first meet, Gonoude put that injury behind him in a big way.

During last week's District 11 Cross Country Championships at Bethlehem Golf Club, Gonoude found himself at the top of the Class AA competition.

Frantz's late goal forces playoff OT

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

During last week's District 11 Class AA girls soccer first-round matchup against Palisades, Salisbury trailed 1-0 for roughly half of the first half and nearly the entire second half.

With under three minutes to play, the Falcons remained down by a goal. Their season was on the verge of ending earlier than they wanted it to.

The Falcons, however, still had some fight left and weren't ready to let the season end on their home turf.

Q. What grade are you currently in?

A. 12th

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. That's a tough question. Personally, I think it has to be tied between history and my media class. I've always loved learning about human culture. However, my media class is also one of my favorite classes because I love being creative and running our school's news show. I'm thinking about going into graphic design, so this class is valuable to me.

Q. Have you received any special awards or recognition?

Rowlands nets two in season finale

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

While there have been bumps along the road for the Salisbury field hockey team this season, the Falcons certainly ended 2013 on a positive note.

In a nonconference matchup against Central Catholic, Amanda Rowlands tallied two goals and an assist in the Falcons' (4-14 overall; 2-14 in Colonial League) 3-1 win over the Vikings (0-16 overall; 0-14) on Saturday morning at Salisbury Middle School.

Long places 10th at district golf

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Despite being a bit nervous heading into last week's District 11 Golf Championships at Blue Ridge Country Club's par 72 course, Salisbury's Kody Long still had high expectations of himself.

Unfortunately, severe weather conditions during play on Monday had postponed the remainder of the tournament until Tuesday. And perhaps it was the effects of the heavy rain and gusty winds that put Long in a situation on Monday that ultimately hurt his goal of advancing to regionals.
