Baseball team shakes off slow start

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

After watching his brother Tyler have a successful season on the mound for the Salisbury baseball team last year, sophomore Chad Cooperman's time has come.

Much like his older brother's success, Chad continues to carry on the tradition of successful pitchers in the family name. He even took Tyler's number from last yearNo. 10.

In his first start of the season, Cooperman threw seven innings of four-hit baseball to lead the Falcons (4-3 in Colonial League) to a 6-0 win over Northwestern (4-3 in Colonial League) on Friday evening at Salisbury High School.

Baseball, softball have busy schedules ahead

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

The current crop of seniors on the Salisbury baseball team has endured plenty of success over its high school career thus far.

So, the 1-2 start that the Falcons had in the Colonial League this season has been one they're not very familiar with. During the previous two seasons, the Falcons (2-2 overall) lost just three league games. Furthermore, during their 15-1 conference mark last season, the Falcons hadn't lost until early May, their second-to-last league game.

Tennis ranked second in D-11

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

It's been quite some time since the Salisbury boys' tennis team put together a winning record in the Colonial League. In fact, the last time the Falcons finished a season with an above .500 mark was in 2009 when they went 10-4 in conference.

A winning record isn't solidified just yet, but a 6-2 conference mark with six league matches remaining puts them in a prime position to do so.

Three Falcons participate in Via events

During the high school basketball season, Justin Aungst, Eddie Sanchez and Austin Uhl teamed up on the Salisbury boys' squad that earned berths in the Colonial League and District 11 Class AAA playoffs.

The three suited up as teammates once more last weekend, but this time in a bit of a different setting.

In the second game of the 39th Annual Via All-Star Basketball Classic on Super Saturday at Northampton Community College, Aungst scored 19 points as the Colonial League boys came up just short against Lehigh Valley Conference West, 97-96.

Baseball and softball finally get under way

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

At this point in the season, the Salisbury baseball team should have five games under its belt.

However, with the uncooperative weather and poor field conditions across the area, the Falcons have been limited to just one game, a 5-0 win over Dieruff on Thursday. Four games have already been postponed. Monday's tilt with Notre Dame (Green Pond) was the latest to be postponed due to field conditions.

The two teams will play on Thursday at Notre Dame.

Gabrielle Maramag

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. I don't have one. No particular subject teaches you how to work hard. In the end, a dropout will always beat a genius through hard work.

Q. Have you received any special awards or recognition?

A. I am a board member of my school's No Place For Hate initiative, a member of National Honor Society and an honor roll student. But now, I can also include a Student of the Week, and I am grateful for that.

Aungst will lead Falcons' staff

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Last year, the Falcons were expected to be one of the area's premier baseball teams.

And they were, flexing a 25-2 record (15-1 in conference) en route to Colonial League and District 11 Class AA championships, while finishing as one of the final four teams in the state.

This year, the expectations may not be as high. But for Salisbury head coach Mike Pochron and his squad, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Eripret chooses Mountain Hawks

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

The Eripret household has ties with the Lehigh University women's basketball team, and now Meagan Eripret will continue that tradition.

Meagan's mother, Bridget, was an assistant coach at Lehigh for a number of years. Now, Meagan has chosen to follow her mother's footsteps in a way by verbally committing to play basketball for the Mountain Hawks after graduating from Salisbury High Scool.
