The Salisbury boys' swimming team captured its first district championship back in 2012, and a year later, the Falcons added their second crown in school history.
When this season's District 11 AA Swimming Championships get underway on Friday, the Falcons will be the clear favorites to add another trophy to the case.
Of the 11 events, the Falcons will have top seed times in three of those races. In addition to that, the Falcons will have top-three seeds in every event but one.
A year ago, the Salisbury boys' basketball team was able to ride a run in districts that earned them a third-place finish and a spot in the PIAA tournament.
The Falcons were not as fortunate this time around.
Salisbury and Southern Lehigh entered last week's Colonial League semifinals matchup on two different sides of recent league history.
Tuesday's appearance in the Colonial League tournament was the Spartans' sixth consecutive, including championships in each of the past three seasons. The No. 3 seeded Falcons, meanwhile, were in the tournament for the first time since 2005.
However, that didn't stop the Falcons from remaining competitive against the South Division champion Spartans in their third matchup of the season. It did, however, end up like the previous two meetings.
The Salisbury boys' basketball team had endured slow starts in two of their final three regular season games.
Against Notre Dame-Green Pond and Southern Lehigh, the Falcons faced deficits of 11 and seven points, respectively, in the first quarter of those games. The Falcons were able to come back from that deficit against the Spartans in their regular season finale, but the Crusaders' advantage back on January 31 was too much to overcome.
While the Salisbury boys and girls basketball teams fell in the semifinals of the Colonial League tournament, both squads still have some basketball left to play.
As the district playoffs get underway this week, both Falcon teams will have an opportunity to avenge a number of tough losses in last week's league tournament.
The boys enter the District 11 Class AAA Tournament as the No. 4 seed after falling to Catasauqua in their semifinals matchup. They'll meet No. 5 seed Bethlehem Catholic on Friday night at Allen High School. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
Heading into the final day of the regular season, much was already determined in terms of the upcoming Colonial League tournament.
Salisbury was already locked into a playoff spoteither as the No. 2 or No. 3 seed. Bangor had clinched the top seed. And with a win over Northwestern (2-13 heading into Friday night) for Catasauqua, the Falcons and Rough Riders would square off in a matchup of two and three seeds in the semifinals on Wednesday.
The Salisbury girls' basketball team got off to a start that maybe it didn't expect against Southern Lehigh on Thursday night.
The Lady Falcons, which led by as many as 14 points in the first half, jumped out to an early 16-5 lead and led 31-19 as halftime hit.
But as the teams took the court to begin the third quarter, the Lady Spartans decided to flip the switch and turn up the defensive full-court pressure.
The Salisbury wrestling team recently held its second annual Falcon Invitational on Sunday at the high school.
The Falcons, who finished in eighth place out of 10 teams with 55 points, had two wrestlers that placed in the top three of their weight classes. Trent Stump went 3-1 at 152 pounds, while Zach Adams won two of four matches matches at 120 pounds to lead the Falcons.
With the upcoming district championship meet set to take place in a little more than two weeks, the Salisbury boys and girls swimming teams are looking to fine tune their times in the final week of the season.
The Falcons, which will end the regular season with meets against three consecutive Lehigh Valley Conference opponents, took to the pool against Allen on Monday evening.
