Eddie Sanchez preps for increased role

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Senior-to-be guard Eddie Sanchez is one of only a few key perimeter players returning for the Salisbury basketball team from a season ago.

With Dan Reichenbach and Tyler Brown both graduating, only Sanchez and a few others that will be back this year have seen significant varsity experience at the guard positions.

There's no question an increased workload is in store for Sanchez. And judging by his early season performance in the Stellar Summer League, he's certainly preparing...

Senior all-stars play in Lions Soccer Classic

Saturday, June 8, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

With both the boys and girls soccer seasons in the fall for the first time this year, the 32nd Annual Lions All-Star Soccer Classic was played nearly six months after the final kick for many local high school seniors.

The Mountain Valley Conference/Colonial League boys gave up three goals in losing 3-0 to the Lehigh Valley Conference all-stars. The girls teams tied 2-2 in a rain-shortened game. Both games were played last Sunday afternoon at Whitehall High School.

With the long...

Aungst does it again in District 11 title game

Saturday, June 8, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Two years ago, pitcher Justin Aungst started in the District 11 Class AA championship game and helped guide the Falcons to a district crown as a freshman.

During last week's district title game against Notre Dame (Green Pond), Aungst's name was called again. And once again, the Salisbury ace delivered on the mound.

Aungst, who allowed four runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings, helped the Falcons capture their second district title in three seasons with a 9-4 victory over the...

Salisbury's strong arms lead team to titles

Saturday, June 8, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Salisbury baseball team has seen an incredible amount of success in 2013. The Falcons won the Colonial League title and District 11 championship, their second in three years. The offense can score with the best of them, but the phrase "defense wins championships" has never meant more than it has for Salisbury in 2013.

The Falcons pitching staff has been a model of dominance and consistency all year.

Seniors Nic Ampietro and Tyler Cooperman, along with junior Justin Aungst,...

Two Falcons earn state medals

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

The week preceding the state track and field meet is arguably the most important one in a single season.

Two years ago Dan Reichenbach thought it may have been the last one of his career.

The two-sport star for the Salisbury Falcons, who was then a sophomore, was practicing just days before the biggest meet in the state of Pennsylvania. During one of his practice jumps, Reichenbach broke and fractured his tibial plateau. The exact injury is called tibial tubercle avulsion. It...

Utsch's walk-off hit caps comeback

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury's baseball team might not have been accustomed to playing in tight games this season. But the Falcons are no strangers to playing close district playoff games against Schuylkill County's Pine Grove.

The Cardinals beat the Falcons in last year's District 11 Class AA title game, 7-6. This year the teams met again in the district title game. Once again, Pine Grove had Salisbury on the ropes late in the game. But this time, the Falcons battled back.

The Cardinals, who...

Falcons fly high at district track

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Freshman year, the inaugural year of high school for students, is usually filled with trying not to get lost in the new school, avoiding getting trampled in the hallways and maybe attempting to make an athletic team.

For Salisbury's Lindsay Bauer, her freshman year of high school is full of winning races and medals on her way to the state track and field meet.

At the conclusion of the two-day District 11 track and field championship meet, which was held on May 15 and 16 at Blue...

Champs again Behind a big night from Justin Aungst, Salisbury won its second straight Colonial League baseball title by shutting out Southern Lehigh last week

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

A 3-1 loss to Wilson back in the beginning of the month was the only blemish on a potential perfect season for the Salisbury baseball team. Pitcher Justin Aungst, unfortunately, was credited with the Falcons' only defeat of the season despite only two Wilson hits.

Not even two weeks later though, Aungst was handed the ball in the Falcons' most crucial game to date in the Colonial League championship game against Southern Lehigh. And he did more than justify his pregame all-star...

Baseball team caps one-loss season

Thursday, May 16, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

A little over a week ago, the Salisbury baseball team experienced something for the first time this season.

Last Monday's 3-2 setback to Wilson marked the Falcons' first loss of the season. And because of it, one of the main questions was how would Salisbury respond after that first mark in the loss column.

That question was answered shortly after that defeat.

Three days later, the Falcons responded with a 15-0 route over Moravian Academy in three innings. The next day,...
