Boys win second straight crown

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by LOU RUSNOCK in HS Sports

Four years ago the Salisbury boys swim team introduced a new pre-meet ritual, forming two lines and performing the Haka, a New Zealand war chant meant to intimidate the opposition. The chant has kicked off the District 11 Class 2A championships since then, igniting the crowd and the athletes, who focus their attention on the Falcon swimmers.

For the past two years, the boys have also taken part in the final ritual of the meet – stepping on the podium to collect the team championship...

Tatum puts team over individual honors

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by LOU RUSNOCK in HS Sports

As the near capacity crowd at Parkland High School came to a hush for the announcement of the Dennis McGinley awards for top boys and girls swimmers at the District 11 Class 2A championships, Salisbury's Eric Tatum quietly went about his business.

The Falcon senior was less concerned with hearing if he'd become a two-time winner and more focused on the 400 free relay, as he was swimming his warm up laps when his name was called.

"I was over in the warm up pool getting ready...

Dee ends career at Regionals

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by The Press in HS Sports

A week after capturing his 100th win and taking third place at the District 11 tournament, Salisbury senior 126-pounder Anthony Dee lost his first two matches at Regionals to end his season. Dee lost to Biglersville's Scott Cooper 9-3 to fall into the consolation bracket and was defeated 1-0 by Wyomissing's Jaquan Gordon to end his tournament. He was a Regional qualifier all four years.


Boys move on to state tourney

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Their bus ride home from Blue Mountain High School on Friday still went along Interstate 78. But for head coach Jason Weaver and the Salisbury boys basketball team, the 40-plus mile trek back to Salisbury High School suddenly didn't feel as long.

With the Falcons holding a four-point lead with under two minutes to play during Friday's District 11 3A boys consolation game against Pottsville, Justin Aungst provided an exclamation point. His steal and layup put Salisbury ahead 42-36 with...

The Shot

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Dan Reichenbach went from potential goat to hero in a very short period of time.

Just seconds after missing two free throws while his team was up a point, his man, Gerald Terry, hit a 15-foot jumper over Reichenbach with just 3.5 seconds left, seemingly winning the game.

But after a timeout, Justin Aungst inbounded the ball and found Reichenbach near midcourt. The senior took one dribble and launched a shot that hit nothing but net. The student section rushed the court to...

Turnovers too much for girls to overcome

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Sophomore forward Meagan Eripret tallied a double-double, but No. 5 seed Salisbury could not put together a spurt long enough to hold off No. 4 seed Minersville in the District 11 Class 2A tournament on Friday night.

Eripret's 24 points and 18 rebounds helped keep the Falcons in the game, but 23 turnovers made it difficult to win and advance. Although the Battling Miners had 15 turnovers of their own, they were able to go on a 10-2 fourth quarter run on their way to a 59-51 victory at...

Two Falcons set to continue athletic careers

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Not many high school athletes get the opportunity to continue their athletic careers at the collegiate level.

But while it doesn't happen too often, two Salisbury senior athletes - Dan Reichenbach and Gavin Sonntag - were recognized last Thursday for receiving athletic scholarships and deciding to pursue their careers after high school.

Reichenbach - the track and field team's MVP award in both 2011 and 2012 - has chosen to attend Lehigh University as a member of the Mountain...
