Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

A year ago, the Salisbury girls soccer team suffered a loss and tie in its annual season-opening soccer tournament.

But a year later, the results were vastly different under second-year head coach Rick Babyak.

"It's a good place to be," said Babyak. "...

With two of the top three goal scorers from a year ago no longer with the team, Connor Wagner figured to be a main piece of Salisbury's offensive attack going into the season.

Mohring returns to his roots

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

Jason Mohring, a 2005 graduate of Salisbury High School and former Falcon swimmer, wanted to stay involved in the sport in some shape or form.

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

By the time August rolls around, most high school baseball players are ready for a break. After long high school and legion seasons, no one would blame them if they wanted a week or two off before starting the school year.
