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...

Dee has weekend to remember at districts

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by ROD HECKMAN in HS Sports

Throughout his career, Anthony Dee has wrestled countless times on Saturdays.

But it's probably safe to say the Salisbury senior never had a weekend like the past one at Liberty High School.

The 126-pounder not only advanced to the Southeast Class 2A Regionals with a third-place finish at districts, but he also gained his 100th victory in the process. If that wasn't enough, Dee was also named the winner of the District 11 Officials Scholarship.

"It hasn't sunk in yet,"...

Boys swimmers eyeing a repeat at district meet

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by LOU RUSNOCK in HS Sports

The Salisbury boys swimming and diving team got a leg up in the race for a second consecutive District 11 title when Dennis Bonner and Daniel Bujcs finished second and third, respectively, at last weekend's diving championships.

If the seeds for Friday and Saturday's District 11 swimming championships are any indication, the Falcons are in great shape to defend their crown.

Of the 11 events to be contested at Parkland High School, Salisbury swimmers are seeded first in eight of...

Minersville awaits Lady Falcons in districts

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

When the start of the District 11 2A girls basketball tournament begins, the Salisbury girls basketball team will not have played a game in over two weeks. The Falcons last faced Southern Lehigh back on February 7, a 64-37 loss which concluded the regular season in the Colonial League.

But despite the lengthy layoff, the team has continued its preparation toward Friday's opening round game against Minersville (16-5) and head coach Joe Mladosich is pleased with how the team is looking...

Will fourth time be a charm for boys?

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

The two squads also met on February 5, making Friday's district contest the third time in roughly two and a half weeks that they've squared off....

PIAA NOTEBOOK PIAA Board needs to act soon on heat issues

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 by ROD FRISCO Special to the Press in HS Sports

With the debate over the length of the PIAA football season long in the rearview mirror, it would seem that football is status quo at the PIAA Board of Directors level.

It is not.

The PIAA Board is currently embroiled in a discussion - some might call it a battle - over how to handle a proposed heat acclimatization program that, no matter how it is implemented, will greatly affect the start of the football practice.

Prompted by concerns from the PIAA's Sports Medicine...
