Wrestlers fare well against Catasauqua

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by The Press in HS Sports

Only six wrestlers were available for Salisbury in last Wednesday's Colonial League matchup. But the half dozen team members were very impressive in a 54-15 loss.

Of the six who competed, three earned wins, including a pair of pins from Nicolas Scarcia and Zachary Adams.

Scarcia gave the Falcons an early lead by pinning Kory Mindler in just 35 seconds in the 120-pound bout.

After a forfeit at 126, Anthony Dee faced Catasauqua's Jacob Rusnock at 132. Dee, who got off to a...

Boys shake off early loss to Blue Eagles

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Following their season-opening loss to Blue Mountain, the Salisbury boys basketball team has quickly turned the corner and moved past that defeat.

Last Tuesday's 54-42 victory over Palisades to kick off Colonial League play was the first of three straight wins for the Falcons.

The Falcons then defeated Saucon Valley (69-55) on Friday to improve to 2-0 in league play, and followed that up with a 62-47 win over Northampton the following day.

Still, despite getting that all...

Hrebik, Eripret keep girls team unbeaten

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Megan Hrebik and Meagan Eripret are off to superb starts for the Salisbury girls basketball team.

During Friday's 44-30 victory over Saucon Valley, Hrebik tallied a team-high 17 points, including seven in the fourth quarter, in helping the Falcons outlast the Panthers. With the win, the Falcons improved to 2-0 in the Colonial League as they head into Tuesday's matchup against Notre Dame of Green Pond.

It wasn't their best overall effort of the season, as the Falcons led by just...

Boys win again in pool, girls drop close meet

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 by The Press in HS Sports

Due to its small size, the Salisbury girls swimming team will be hard-pressed to win many meets this season.

While the girls have several strong individual swimmers and may win a majority of the events, a team win, which favors deep squads, could be elusive.

Going into the final event of last week's meet against Allen, the girls had a win in their sights. But a strong swim from the Chicks' 400 free relay team denied the girls a chance to break into the win column as the fell 88...

Dee is perfect at Jim Thorpe Duals

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 by BRAD HURLEY in HS Sports

Salisbury wrestling coach Eric Snyder doesn't have the numbers he would like in 2012-13, but in the case of the Falcons grappling squad it's about quality not quantity.

The Falcons took a trip north to Jim Thorpe High School this past weekend to compete at the Jim Thorpe Duals to get their season started. The Duals consisted of 10 teams from all over the eastern part of Pennsylvania. Snyder knew his team as a whole wasn't going to get a win because of all their holes in the lineup,...

Opening statement Big second half lifts girls in season opener

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

It was no secret that the success of the Salisbury girls basketball team would rely heavily on the shoulders of two of their top returnees from a season ago - senior Megan Hrebik and sophomore Meagan Eripret.

And it took very little time for the two to show what they're capable of.

In the Falcons' season opener under first-year head coach Joe Mladosich, Hrebik and Eripret combined to score over 75 percent of the team's points in their 59-34 route of Dieruff on Friday night at...

Boys swimmers cruise past Moravian

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 by The Press in HS Sports

A much-anticipated season got off to a good start for the Salisbury boys swim team as the Falcons cruised past Moravian Academy 131-51 in their home opener on Friday.

The Falcons took first in all 10 events on the boys side, getting multiple wins from Jon Anderson, Conner Harrison and Eric Tatum.

Tatum, the defending state champ in the 100 fly, was victorious in that event and also won the 50 free by over a second. He was on the victorious 200 medley and 200 free relays as well...

Freedom shoots down Whitehall/Salisbury

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

In a battle of two of the top goalies in the Lehigh Valley Scholastic Ice Hockey League, Tristen Collins (Salisbury) had a hard time of stopping shot after shot. Ben Wykosky of Freedom had one blemish to an other wise flawless night, as the Patriots handled Salisbury/Whitehall 6-1 at the Steel Ice Center in Bethlehem last Monday night.

Three first period goals, one of which came on the shorthanded end, put Salisbury/Whitehall (1-5-2) in a hole it could not dig out of.

"[Freedom...

SWIMMING PREVIEW Tatum, boys look to defend D11 title

Thursday, December 6, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Led by Eric Tatum, the Salisbury boys swimming team capped off last season with a District 11 2A championship and a fourth-place finish in the P.I.A.A. Championship Meet.

With a good chunk of that squad back from a season ago, the boys will look to build off that success in search of back-to-back district titles and another opportunity at a state trophy in Jason Reinhard's first season as head coach.

"We have a mix of kids that have been training for several months [and] some...

Hockey team edged by Easton in LVSHL play

Thursday, December 6, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Tim Drevitch scored two goals, the first of the game, and the game winner, to lead Easton past Salisbury/Whitehall 4-2 last Monday night at the Lehigh Valley Ice Arena in Whitehall.

Salisbury/Whitehall had good looks on net seemingly all game, but could not take advantage of the chances. They outshot the Red Rovers 32-28, and created more chances in open play.

"We had our opportunities, we just didn't finish," said head coach Rich Crowley. "We're not a great offensive team for...
