Heading into the final week of the girls' basketball regular season, no team is on a hotter streak than Salisbury.
The Falcons (15-5 overall; 11-3 in Colonial League), now winners of 10 straight games, including eight in conference, defeated Notre Dame-Green Pond (7-10 overall; 6-7 in Colonial League) on Thursday night at Salisbury High School, 53-46.
Salisbury's second, and most prominent win over the current stretch, was back on January 9, a 42-41 defeat of Northwestern that gave the Tigers their only loss of the season.
The Salisbury wrestling team is entering the final stretch of its regular season before district play begins in a little more than weeks.
The Falcons, who are currently 1-6 in the Colonial League with two conference dual meets remaining, will host the Salisbury Invitational on Saturday, a tournament in which 10 teams will take part.
While the Falcons' record may not rank as one of the top in the league, the Falcons continue to work on the week-to-week improvements.
Even though Jason Mohring understood he was taking over a swimming program that had plenty of success last season, particularly on the boys' side, even he is a bit surprised at the team's season thus far.
The Salisbury boys' swimming team recently added two more wins to its record, beating Southern Lehigh on Friday (111-69) and against Nazareth on Saturday (109-74). The wins bring the Falcons' season mark to a perfect 8-0.
And while Mohring understands the Falcon boys' best times may still to be to come, he couldn't be more pleased with the team's transition from a year ago.
Q. What grade are you currently in?
A. I am currently in 12th grade at Salisbury High School.
Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?
A. One of my favorite subjects would definitely be chemistry. It is something that comes easily to me most of the time. I find it to be a rather interesting subject and many of the labs I had were far from boring.
Q. Have you received any special awards or recognition?
Following last week's tough loss to BangorSalisbury's second league loss of the seasonthe Falcons wanted to make a statement the next time they took the court against Palisades.
And right from the opening tip off, the Falcons certainly put together an outing that could be heard around the rest of the Colonial League.
The Falcons, who scored 16 of the 20 first-quarter points, led 31-17 going into halftime. And after leading by as much as 28 points in the third quarter, the Falcons added another win to their record with a 58-37 victory on Friday night at Salisbury High School.
Northampton Community College point guard Brent Maron was a key member in helping guide the Spartans to their first ever Eastern Pennsylvania Atheltic Confernce championship as a freshman.
Now, in his second season with the Spartans, Maron would like to reach that level of success once again.
Maron, a 2012 graduate of Salisbury High School, has taken on an even bigger role this season. Through 15 games, he is averaging 8.3 points, 6 assists (first on team), 3.6 rebounds and 1.9 steals (tied for first on team) per game.
It's been quite some time since the Salisbury girls' basketball team qualified for the Colonial League playoffs.
The Lady Falcons (now 9-3 in the Colonial League) haven't made an appearance in the league playoffs since the 2004-05 season, nearly nine years ago.
The Lady Falcons are certainly still in control of their own destiny. And it's by a solid margin.
It has certainly been a long time coming for head coach Eric Snyder and the Salisbury wrestling team.
The Falcons, which hadn't won a wrestling match since the 2007-08 season, were able to break that barrier and give Snyder his first win since he's been a part of the program beginning in 2008-09.
A week ago, the Falcons (1-5 in Colonial League) used four pins to defeat Notre Dame (Green Pond), 37-30, for their first win in nearly six years.
Salisbury junior diver Denny Bonner looked up to Peter Cialkowski, a 2010 graduate of Salisbury High School, and the diving records he possessed as a Falcon.
Now, Bonner's name will replace Cialkowski's on the banner at KidsPeace that contains both school and pool records after his record-setting performance against Stroudsburg on Thursday.
Deadlocked in a 50-50 tie in Monday night's Colonial League boys basketball showdown against Salisbury, Bangor called a timeout with 5.3 seconds remaining to draw up one last play.
Everyone, even Salisbury head coach Jason Weaver, thought Jeremy Ringland, who finished with a game-high 22 points, would get the ball for a shot at winning it for the Slaters.
Instead, it was another Slater who came up with the game's biggest shot.
