Bauer reaches new heights in junior year

Wednesday, July 29, 2015 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

While some teenagers her age are enjoying a summer with little or no obligations, Lindsay Bauer is using the off time to better herself. She's looking to mold herself into the best athlete she can be.

As if her 2014-15 athletic year wasn't good enough, Bauer has eyes set on taking the next step, yet another leap forward.

In between play in a summer basketball league, the incoming-senior has been training two days a week at Core XL in preparation for her final track season, although that is still seven months away.

Salibsury boys have successful run in SportsFest

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Even though the Salisbury boys' basketball team played in the Stellar Construction summer league and tournament nearly two weeks ago, the Falcons haven't had their full lineup for much of the summer.

Head coach Jason Weaver was able to see his full squad in action for the first time all summer in the recent SportsFest "A-Town Throwdown" tournament at Cedar Beach Park. In the grand scheme of things, Weaver was pleased with what he saw over the Falcons' two days of play and three games.

Falcons' Denver part of dominant defensive effort

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

When Teddy Denver suffered a broken leg in Salisbury's season finale against Southern Lehigh, his football future was in doubt. He wasn't sure if he would step on the field again.

But now, after months of rehab on that leg, Denver has plans of continuing his football career at Lebanon Valley College. The recent Salisbury graduate also had one more high school game left in him, one that he'll remember for quite some time.

Salisbury's LVL losing skid reaches four games

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Facing a 1-0 deficit against Northern Valley on Saturday, Salisbury had the bases loaded in the fifth inning with no outs.

At least one run seemed to be on the way. Even two looked like a possibility with the end of their lineup coming up to the plate. Instead the Falcons were left stranded with another scoreless inning.

That's how parts of this year's Lehigh Valley Legion season have gone for Salisbury.

Boys hope to find identity over summer

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

There is plenty that head coach Jason Weaver and the Salisbury boys' basketball team needs to work on in the offseason.

Three senior starters from last year's squad have graduated, leaving the biggest voids to fill at the point guard position and in the scoring department. Figuring out what defensive schemes work best for this Falcons team is also still up in the air. The upcoming summer months hope to answer those question marks.

Aungst stars as freshman at St. Joe's

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

The Saint Joseph's coaching staff wasted no time in testing freshman pitcher Justin Aungst.

Aungst quickly proved that he was up for the challenge. And then some.

It wasn't just Aungst's first collegiate game. It was a lot more than that. In the Hawks' season opener against Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles, CA, located 2,500 miles across country from the Hawks' home in Philadelphia, Aungst's name was called in the sixth inning in relief. Four innings later, he picked up the win after pitching three hitless frames and striking out four batters.

Falcons' Costello steps into increased role

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

With Bryce Fairclough and Tevon Weber seeing much of the court time in the post, Jaxon Costello, an incoming junior, didn't get much varsity time in the winter.

Now that Fairclough has graduated, that is all set to change. And it seems as though Costello is transitioning into that position smoothly.

Costello continued his successful summer stretch with a solid performance in Salisbury's game last week against Kutztown. Costello scored the first eight points and finished with a team-high 13 in the Falcons' 56-32 romp at Allentown's Cedar Beach last Thursday.
