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...

Bonner second in D11 diving, Bujcs takes third

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

Salisbury's Denny Bonner held his usual battle with Central Catholic's Nick Crouse at the District 11 Diving Championships and came up with a second place finish to Crouse, who set a district record with an 11-dive score of 457.20.

The two competitors have battled before and will do so again in the state competition and again next year when both are seniors. But the competition is a friendly one.

"We practice together," said Bonner following the meet. "We actually sort of push...

Hockey ends LVSHL year on winning note

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Brad Owens ripped a shot into the upper corner of the net past Charles Varga, and Salisbury/Whitehall staved off some late Bethlehem/Central Catholic pressure on their goal on their way to a 3-2 win in their season finale last Monday night at the Lehigh Valley Ice Arena.

"We got off to a good start," said head coach Rich Crowley. "We got to them early, and our defense was on tonight. We're a defensive team and we fought all year. We lost some leads, but we fought back. And that's how...

The Shot

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Dan Reichenbach went from potential goat to hero in a very short period of time.

Just seconds after missing two free throws while his team was up a point, his man, Gerald Terry, hit a 15-foot jumper over Reichenbach with just 3.5 seconds left, seemingly winning the game.

But after a timeout, Justin Aungst inbounded the ball and found Reichenbach near midcourt. The senior took one dribble and launched a shot that hit nothing but net. The student section rushed the court to...

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...

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

It won't take long for the Salisbury boys basketball team to cross paths with Wilson once again this season.

Ten days after their meeting in the Colonial League semifinals, the Falcons and Warriors will face off for the fourth time this season on Friday night at Catasauqua at 7:30 p.m. in the District 11 3A boys basketball tournament.

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....
