BOYS BASKETBALL PREVIEW Experienced group tries to continue success

Thursday, December 6, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

It's always difficult replacing players a team lost from a year ago.

For the Salisbury boys basketball team, they'll be dealt the task of trying to replace two of the Colonial League's top players from a season ago in Brent Maron and Llyod Irons. Both were All-League selections and Irons was named the MVP. Max Simon also graduated and will be missed down low as well.

It will certainly be a team effort for the Falcons who won the league title last season by going 15-1 in...

Thursday, November 29, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury's Gavin Carey tapped in a centered pass from his brother Ian to put the Whitehall/Salisbury hockey team in front late in the first period. There wasn't much time to celebrate, however, as four second period goals from Emmaus shifted the momentum towards a 5-2 Green Hornets win.

"We were feeling pretty confident," said head coach Rich Crowley. "We know we're not a high-scoring team, so we get one goal and a bit of momentum."

Whitehall/Salisbury (1-5-2) was again kept...

Wednesday, November 7, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Salisbury cross country head coach Doug Hensinger likes to stick to the basics. He doesn't was his runners to overthink their race strategies.

And never has he had a more willing pupil than Kyle Gonoude.

"I try and keep things simple with the kids," said Hensinger. "Run as hard as you can as long as you can and pass as many people as you can. That person in front of you could be your place for a medal."

Gonoude does exactly that in every race. It's proved very successful...
