Prior to their toughest test of the season, a matchup against unbeaten Palmerton on Monday night, the Salisbury girls' basketball team had to take care of business against another Colonial League foe.
Against Wilson on Thursday, there was little doubt that the Falcons would enter that pivotal matchup against Palmerton with identical 4-0 records in the Colonial League West Division.
Following two tough meets to open the Colonial League season, the Salisbury wrestling team took a break from league action over the weekend by competing in the Archbishop Wood Tournament.
A number of Falcons had solid days on the mat, including Zach Adams, who took first place at 126 pounds at the tournament. Shane Simononis (152) and Alex Nicholas (220) took third place, while Michael Murphy (106) and Isaac Rivera (170) finished fourth in Saturday's tournament.
It's pretty clear what Salisbury center Meagan Eripret can do on the basketball court. Through the Lady Falcons' first four games, Eripret has scored a total of 96 points.
But the Lady Falcons' success may ultimately come down to their guard play.
In their latest conference game, the Lady Falcons saw a glimpse of what this team can do when all phases are clicking. It was an impressive outing from the opening tip until the final buzzer.
The Salisbury boys basketball team has not yet found an opponent that could stay with the Falcons for four quarters.
During the first week of the regular season, the Falcons are 3-0 after wins over Blue Mountain (61-47) and Pen Argyl (67-30) by double digits. They finished off the week with a 71-46 victory at defending Colonial League and District 11 Class AA runner up Catasauqua.
It may not have been as convincing of a victory as Salisbury would have liked, but a win is a win.
Salisbury senior diver Denny Bonner is no stranger to success.
As a member of the Falcons' diving team last year, Bonner placed seventh at the PIAA Swimming and Diving Championships with a score of 415.90 in the finals. He also broke the Salisbury diving record in his junior year on a number of occassions.
It's a task head coach Jason Weaver has dealt with before.
In his second season as the man in charge of the Salisbury boys basketball program, Weaver was forced to replace his entire starting lineup from the previous year, which included five seniors.
Head coach Eric Snyder had plenty of reason to be excited for the upcoming wrestling season. While just one wrestler, Trent Stump, graduated from last year's team, Salisbury had plenty of talent coming back for 2015.
But what Snyder had envisioned took a bit of a back seat due to a number of unfortunate circumstances.
Following the resignation of Jason Mohring in October, the Salisbury swimming program needed a replacement to lead the program, which has been one of the top Class AA swim teams in District 11 over the past decade.
The Falcons found their candidate in Ken Vincent, who coached the Emmaus Aquatic Club and Pennridge High School in the past. He is also the head coach of the boys water polo team at Pennridge. He now adds head coach of Salisbury High School to that list.
The Salisbury girls' basketball team reached heights last year that not many previous Lady Falcon squads had experienced.
Following a regular season that saw the Lady Falcons secure a 12-4 mark in the Colonial League (their most league wins since 2005), Salisbury rode that success to a District 11 Class AA title game appearance and a victory in the PIAA playoffs. Their win over Imhotep Charter in states ties for the second-longest run in program history.
