Scarcia becoming a factor on the mats

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

It's tough for a team to go out and compete on a nightly basis when the outcome is already virtually determined beforehand.

But that's what the Salisbury wrestling team does every time it takes the mat.

Despite having just six wrestlers on the team a number that makes it impossible for the Falcons to capture a win no matter the outcome of each individual bout the Falcons continue to fight and improve no matter the circumstances.

The same was evident during Wednesday's...

Anderson having big season

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 by SHANE BAGLINI Special to the Press in HS Sports

Jon Anderson is a special kind of swimmer. The junior is the top freestyle swimmer on Salisbury's team, and will be key in getting the Falcons their second straight District 11 title, and hopefully more.

"It's always good to have somebody to race, that you see every day that can always push you, you're always working to be better," said Anderson of his team's success. "Everyone has their own personal race, and they all just keep getting faster, and then we all come together at...

Salisbury rifle team takes its best shot

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 by SHANE BAGLINI Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Salisbury rifle team is off to a rough start this season, but the athletes participating are learning valuable life lessons while participating with their friends and classmates.

Gun violence has become a major issue in today's America, and the lessons being learned by the Salisbury High School rifle team are lessons that everyone should take seriously.

"We teach the kids gun safety from day one, it's the fundamental part of what we do here, before we worry about technique...

Falcon boys shoot down Blue Bombers

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 by ED HEDES in HS Sports

Salisbury head coach Jason Weaver sat and watched his JV team, with a 15-1 record, get off to a sluggish start against Palmerton on Friday. So it was no surprise his pre-game talk to the varsity squad was all about having a big first quarter when it took the court.

Weaver's words were put into motion rather quickly as the Falcons jumped out to a 21-6 first quarter lead and the never looked back in rolling to a 73-35 Colonial League win. It upped their record to 10-6 overall and 7-3 in...

Girls topple Palmerton

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Last Friday's game against Palmerton was one that Salisbury girls basketball head coach Joe Mladosich was waiting for the entire season.

It may have taken a little longer than expected, but the Falcons' 67-43 win over the Blue Bombers last week at Salisbury High School was an outing that was as impressive as any other during the season thus far.

The win stationed the Falcons - who have won three of their last four conference games - back to .500 in the Colonial League. The...

Wrestlers win three against Notre Dame

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

Numbers remain a major factor in the winless season for the Salisbury wrestling team so far, but the individual success has been good for the team.

In a loss to Notre Dame of Green Pond last week, the Falcons scored 14 points in six matches of a 52-14 loss.

Salisbury split the six contested bouts against the Crusaders and actually held a brief lead at 14-12.

Anthony Dee, the Falcons' standout 126-pounder, picked up another pin, downing David Reif in 2:53. Matthwe...

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...

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....

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.

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...
