Salisbury's golf team finished off one of its most successful Colonial League seasons in recent years by competing in the league championship tournament, held last Wednesday at Bethlehem Municipal Golf Course.
The Falcons, which posted the first team record over .500 in nine years, saw two players finish in the top 20 at leagues.
Sophomore Kody Long shot an 83 for 15th place. Junior Luke Chassard fired an 85 and tied for 17th.

Led by strong finish from Kyle Gonoude and Garrett Collins, the Salisbury boys need just two races to better last season's win total, taking four of five matchups in last week's Colonial League cluster meet at Pen Argyl.
Gonoude was third in a lead group that included Wilson's Jaryd Flank and Catasauqua's...
Andy Cerco got his first win as head coach last week when his Salisbury team defeated Palmerton on Friday night, 13-7.
The first-year head coach also got to experience another first for his career - a sideline Gatorade bath for the historic victory.
"It was definitely different," said Cerco. "I never got that before. I was wet the whole way home, and it was pretty cold the whole way home.
"It was a good experience. That just shows you how excited the kids were about what...
Following the final whistle of last Thursday's field hockey game between Salisbury and Wilson, the Falcons felt as if that was a game they should've had.
It was the Falcons who not only dominated time of possession, but held a lopsided 14-2 advantage in shots on goal. And facing a Warrior team that they defeated twice a year ago and that had no substitutions for their most recent matchup against the Falcons, it looked like a recipe for a Salisbury win.
But that's certainly not...
Something had to give.
Salisbury and Palmerton entered their Colonial League battle winless on Friday night so someone was going to take a step forward, while the other would take a step backward.
After a scoreless first half, it was the Falcons who stepped it up a notch and hit the win column with a 13-7 victory at Blue Bomber Stadium.
It was the first win for the Falcons since October 14 of last year when they defeated Palisades 30-7.
And Salisbury head coach...
For the past few seasons, one of the Salisbury field hockey team's biggest obstacles has been scoring goals in the offensive end.
In the team's season opener against Palisades last Wednesday at Salisbury High School, the Falcons once again struggled to find the back of the cage in the 4-0 defeat.
It wasn't a one-sided contest in terms of possession and shots on goal, though. The Falcons (0-2) controlled the ball in the Pirates' territory consistently and had their chances on...
Junior midfielder/forward Kori Hadinger is having one marvelous start to season for the Salisbury girls soccer team.
Two more goals for Hadinger in the Falcons' 6-0 shutout victory over Catasauqua gives her a total of five after three league games.
Hadinger will tell you herself she feels more comfortable operating in the center. But head coach Rick Babyak is beyond pleased at the results he sees from his offensive weapon wherever she is stationed.
"I'm more comfortable...
Goals were a plenty, coming from all distances and speeds last Thursday night as Ben Heydt and his teammates fired on all cylinders and shut down Catasauqua 9-1 in Colonial League action at Salisbury.
Heydt scored the first and third goals for the Falcons. His first, just under six minutes in, was ripped off a missed clearance from a corner kick. His second goal, a no-doubter, nearly put a hole in the net when it flew past Catasauqua goalie Gunnar Pattison's out-stretching arms....
