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...

Falcons take fifth at league meet

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

Things have certainly changed from a year ago.

After finishing fourth in the 1600-meter run and 13th in the 800 at last year's Colonial League Meet, Kyle Gonoude improved on those marks in this year's meet to help the Salisbury boys finish fifth as a team.

Gonoude, a Salisbury sophomore, won the 1600 with a time of 4:28.26 and captured second in both the 800 (2:01.39) and (9:53.86) during this season's meet, held last Tuesday and Wednesday at Whitehall High School.

"That...

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,...

Ampietro fans 10 in win over ND

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Heading into last week's game against Notre Dame-Green Pond, the closest any opponent came to defeating the Falcons were those very Crusaders.

Back on April 4, the Falcons defeat Notre Dame by a score of 6-1. For a Salisbury team that has won by seven or more runs 12 times this season, the Crusaders were one of just two opponents who have kept it this close. Catasauqua lost to the Falcons by five runs as well just a few weeks ago.

Over a month later, during the Falcons' senior...

Doubles teams post D-11 wins

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Each of the three Salisbury doubles teams experienced firsts in their careers last Thursday during the opening two rounds of the District 11 AA doubles tournament at the West End Racquetball Club.

Most notably, Austin Albright and Zak Young qualified for districts for the first time. The two weren't just happy settling for a spot in the field, they wanted to win. And in the first round, Albright and Young took down Jim Thorpe's Dave Castro and Avery Maguil on the final set 6-4, 5-7,...
