Falcons hold on for win over Tigers

Thursday, January 17, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

When it comes to close games this season, the Salisbury boys basketball team has often found itself on the losing end.

That, however, changed last Friday night as the Falcons (8-6 overall; 5-3 in Colonial League) held off a furious second half rally from Northwestern Lehigh (5-10 overall; 2-6 in Colonial League), and moved to two games above .500 in conference play with the 48-43 victory.

"This was good for us," said head coach Jason Weaver. "This was our first win this year...

Hockey upsets K-Kids

Thursday, January 17, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Cody Rinkus bagged a hat trick, and Matt Emerick added two goals and an assist to fuel Whitehall/Salisbury to an upset win over Northampton on senior night last Monday at Lehigh Valley Ice Arena.

"It was awesome," the senior Rinkus said on the win. "It's been a rough season for us, just to get this tonight, it was a big win."

For Salisbury/Whitehall (2-6-3), they are back in the win column for the first time since a 3-1 victory over Pleasant Valley/Quakertown on November 12....

Thursday, January 17, 2013 by SHANE BAGLINI Special to the Press in HS Sports

Meagan Eripret and Megan Hrebik came up big on both ends for the Salisbury girls basketball team on Saturday afternoon in the Lady Falcons 46-31 victory over Notre Dame East Stroudsburg.

Eripret dominated both ends of the floor, as well as the offensive and defensive rebounding departments, playing totally in sync with her senior point guard Hrebik.

The 6-2 sophomore pulled down eight rebounds and scored seven points in the first half. Hrebik also netted seven first half points...

Boys swimmers continue pursuit of perfection

Thursday, January 17, 2013 by The Press in HS Sports

The Salisbury boys picked up a pair of wins over Class 3A schools last week, dominating both Nazareth and East Stroudsburg North to remain unbeaten on the season.

The Falcons were again impressive, winning all three relays in both meets.

Against Nazareth, the boys took nine of the 12 events, with Jon Anderson leading the way with a pair of individual victories. Anderson captured first in the 200 and 500 frees and was also part of the 200 and 400 free relay teams that took first...

Boys take down Southern Lehigh

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury boys basketball head coach Jason Weaver understood that his team's upcoming games in league play would be a good gauge on where his Falcons stood roughly midway through the season.

And in their first game of 2013, the Falcons showed that, despite their current .500 record in the Colonial League, they are ready to compete with anyone.

A little less than a week after hanging with a Parkland team for virtually the entire game, the Falcons (5-5, 3-3 Colonial League)...

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by The Press in HS Sports

The Salisbury boys scored an impressive win over Saucon Valley last week, winning all but one event en route to a 131-49 victory to remain perfect on the season. Despite a strong day in the water from Danielle Guttman, the girls fell 109-57 against the Panthers.

Jon Anderson was instrumental in the boys victory, capturing both of his individual swims and leading off for a pair of victorious relay teams. The boys also showed their depth as seven different athletes won events at the...

Falcon girls continue losing streak

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Salisbury girls basketball team is in the midst of its worst stretch of the season.

Saturday's defeat to Bangor, 46-34, at Salisbury High School dropped the Falcons to 2-4 in the Colonial League and a game under .500 overall through nine games. After starting the season 3-0, the Falcons have dropped three in a row, and their past four contests against conference foes.

Head coach Joe Mladosich believes that a win in conference play will propel his Falcons on a winning streak...

Fleetwood takes down girls in final

Monday, January 7, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

A second quarter filled with turnovers and three pointers helped Fleetwood win the Salisbury Holiday Tournament Friday afternoon 47-41 over the host Falcons.

The Tigers were successful on 5-of-6 three point shots, and forced Salisbury to turn the ball over, pressuring in the half court. Fleetwood took a 10-point lead into half, and never looked back.

"The first half I think we had 12 turnovers, and the second half we only had three," said head coach Joe Mladosich. "I just don't...

Boys impressive in loss to Parkland

Monday, January 7, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Considering the way Friday night's championship game between Salisbury and Parkland in the Parkland Holiday Classic started, many would have expected the Falcons to pack it in early.

But don't tell that to head coach Jason Weaver.

Despite falling behind 13 points after the first quarter and trailing 22-6 in the opening moments of the second, the Falcons erased that deficit and led 43-39 - their largest lead of the game - heading into the final quarter.

And while the...

Swimmers sweep rival Central Catholic

Monday, January 7, 2013 by The Press in HS Sports

Two weeks after falling in the final event, the Salisbury girls pulled off a dominant win in the 400 free relay to take down Central Catholic by a point at KidsPeace last week.

The Lady Falcons entered the last race trailing by three points, but the foursome of Danielle Guttman, Alyssa Sipos, Kaliegh Bobeck and Meredith Heydt delivered a victory in the relay by over a minute as the girls slipped past the Vikettes 83-82.

Guttman was instrumental in the victory, earning maximum...
