Toman will continue pole vault career at Lehigh University

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

Out of the three Salisbury seniors who signed collegiate letters of intent last Tuesday at Bethlehem's The Goosemen, Katie Toman was the last to decide on the school of her future.

It wasn't necessarily a difficult decision for the Falcon track and field senior, it just took a bit longer than her two classmates.

Salisbury's Williams finds PSU softball program to be the perfect fit

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

Seated in front of friends and family members at last week's collegiate athletic signing at Bethlehem's The Goosemen, Meghan Williams sported a navy and white polo shirt, similar to Salisbury's school colors.

The big difference was the Penn State University logo in the top corner.

Williams, who gave a verbal commitment to Penn State over a year ago, signed her letter of intent last Tuesday to continue her softball career as a Nittany Lion. She was one of three Falcons to sign their letters of intent.

It was almost a year ago when Meagan Eripret made her decision.

Last Tuesday, the Salisbury senior made it official.

As one of the area's top talents, Eripret signed her college letter of intent to continue her basketball career at Lehigh University. She gave her verbal commitment to the Mountain Hawks last February.

Being around the Mountain Hawks' program since she was young, it's not a complete shock that the latest Salisbury 1,000-point scorer chose Lehigh.

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Salisbury's football manager, sophomore Tyler Strauss, has walked virtually every step with the team over the past two seasons.

Strauss, who is diagnosed with Fragile X syndrome, attends all of Salisbury's football games, both home and away. He practices with the team throughout the week and in the humid summer months. He's visible in the weight room during lifting sessions.

As head coach Andy Cerco and any member of the Falco football team will tell you, Strauss is a member of the Salisbury family.

Gonoude earns third state medal in XC

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

Kyle Gonoude has been to the state cross country meet every season of his high school career, including this past weekend's meet that would cap off his senior season.

And despite reaching that plateau for the fourth time in his career, a feat a rare number of runners get to experience, Gonoude, understandably, still gets a bit nervous prior to the biggest race of the season.
