Turnovers plague girls in Wilson loss

Thursday, December 27, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

There wasn't much for Salisbury girls basketball head coach Joe Mladosich to say after his team's 48-43 loss to Wilson on Saturday night.

Rattled and disrupted by Wilson's pressure for much of the second half, the Falcons were forced into a slew of turnovers that erased a nine-point third quarter lead to a five-point deficit early in the fourth.

The Falcons tied the game on a number of occasions in the fourth - most lately at 41-41 off a Meagan Eripret layup and free throw -...

Three Falcons get wins

Thursday, December 27, 2012 by The Press in HS Sports

The six Salisbury wrestlers competed well against Northern Lehigh in a Colnial League matchup last Wednesday.

While the Falcons had no shot at a team win due to the number of forfeits, Salisbury took half of the six bouts it competed in.

Heavyweight Peter Samy was the first Salisbury wrestler to earn points and he won a hard-fought decision over Thomas Nesfeder, 6-3.

At 126 pound, Salisbury's top grappler Anthony Dee had another good outing, pinning Ryan Rubio in just 1:...

Warriros pull away from Falcons in fourth quarter

Thursday, December 27, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Following their first conference loss of the season to Notre Dame-Green Pond just two days earlier, the Salisbury boys basketball team looked to get back on track against one of the tougher Colonial League foes in Wilson.

And for over three quarters of play on Thursday night at Salisbury High School, neither team could significantly separate itself from the other.

Wilson, however, scored 10 of the fourth quarter's first 14 points, increasing its lead to double digits with just...

Girls swimmers get first win of year

Thursday, December 27, 2012 by The Press in HS Sports

The Salisbury girls picked up their first win of the season, downing Quakertown 83-40 as part of a 1-1 week in the water. The boys team remained perfect by dropping both Stroudsburg and Quakertown.

The girls win on Friday came thanks to big days from Danielle Guttman, Alyssa Sipos and Kaleigh Bobeck, who each won two individual events.

Guttman, the girls' top freestyler, won both the 100 and 200 frees. She also led off the victorious 200 and 400 free relays. Sipos joined her on...

Hrebik, Eripret keep girls team unbeaten

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Megan Hrebik and Meagan Eripret are off to superb starts for the Salisbury girls basketball team.

During Friday's 44-30 victory over Saucon Valley, Hrebik tallied a team-high 17 points, including seven in the fourth quarter, in helping the Falcons outlast the Panthers. With the win, the Falcons improved to 2-0 in the Colonial League as they head into Tuesday's matchup against Notre Dame of Green Pond.

It wasn't their best overall effort of the season, as the Falcons led by just...

Boys win again in pool, girls drop close meet

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by The Press in HS Sports

Due to its small size, the Salisbury girls swimming team will be hard-pressed to win many meets this season.

While the girls have several strong individual swimmers and may win a majority of the events, a team win, which favors deep squads, could be elusive.

Going into the final event of last week's meet against Allen, the girls had a win in their sights. But a strong swim from the Chicks' 400 free relay team denied the girls a chance to break into the win column as the fell 88...

Wrestlers fare well against Catasauqua

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by The Press in HS Sports

Only six wrestlers were available for Salisbury in last Wednesday's Colonial League matchup. But the half dozen team members were very impressive in a 54-15 loss.

Of the six who competed, three earned wins, including a pair of pins from Nicolas Scarcia and Zachary Adams.

Scarcia gave the Falcons an early lead by pinning Kory Mindler in just 35 seconds in the 120-pound bout.

After a forfeit at 126, Anthony Dee faced Catasauqua's Jacob Rusnock at 132. Dee, who got off to a...

Boys shake off early loss to Blue Eagles

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Following their season-opening loss to Blue Mountain, the Salisbury boys basketball team has quickly turned the corner and moved past that defeat.

Last Tuesday's 54-42 victory over Palisades to kick off Colonial League play was the first of three straight wins for the Falcons.

The Falcons then defeated Saucon Valley (69-55) on Friday to improve to 2-0 in league play, and followed that up with a 62-47 win over Northampton the following day.

Still, despite getting that all...

Dee is perfect at Jim Thorpe Duals

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 by BRAD HURLEY in HS Sports

Salisbury wrestling coach Eric Snyder doesn't have the numbers he would like in 2012-13, but in the case of the Falcons grappling squad it's about quality not quantity.

The Falcons took a trip north to Jim Thorpe High School this past weekend to compete at the Jim Thorpe Duals to get their season started. The Duals consisted of 10 teams from all over the eastern part of Pennsylvania. Snyder knew his team as a whole wasn't going to get a win because of all their holes in the lineup,...

Opening statement Big second half lifts girls in season opener

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

It was no secret that the success of the Salisbury girls basketball team would rely heavily on the shoulders of two of their top returnees from a season ago - senior Megan Hrebik and sophomore Meagan Eripret.

And it took very little time for the two to show what they're capable of.

In the Falcons' season opener under first-year head coach Joe Mladosich, Hrebik and Eripret combined to score over 75 percent of the team's points in their 59-34 route of Dieruff on Friday night at...
