Offense struggles in loss to Notre Dame

Thursday, April 11, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Salisbury head coach Mike Pochron is aware that the Falcons’ bats may struggle at times. It’s been evident at times throughout their first seven games.

But it was never more evident than Saturday’s game against Notre Dame (Green Pond). It didn’t help that the Falcons faced one of the league’s top pitchers.

Notre Dame’s Steven Luke pitched six innings of shutout, one-hit baseball, as the Crusaders defeated the Falcons (3-4 overall; 2-3 in Colonial League) 6-0 at Salisbury High...

Softball beats Catty, NL

Thursday, April 4, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

While Salisbury’s season opener against Allen was postponed, the rest of its first week of Colonial League play was a bit of a roller coaster ride. And that’s to be expected early with limited practice time on the field together.

The Lady Falcons sit 2-2 in conference play after starting off this week with a tough 6-5 defeat against Wilson on Monday. Salisbury took care of business against Northern Lehigh (4-3) and Catasauqua (24-0) last week after rebounding from a 10-0 season-...

Jumps will be track team’s strength

Sunday, March 31, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Jack Reichenbach wasn’t just Salisbury’s top jumper last year. He was one of the top jumpers in the entire state.

While Reichenbach has since graduated and is now having a stellar track and field season at the University of Rhode Island, the jump events figure to be a strong point for Salisbury in 2019 once again.

The Falcons bring back a number of jumpers on both the boys and girls teams this spring.

Reichenbach will be tough to replace with just one person. He won both...

Cooperman off to good start at BU

Sunday, March 31, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Several former Salisbury Township High School athletes have already begun spring sports at the college level.

Bloomsburg junior pitcher/infielder Chad Cooperman has been solid on the mound to open the spring season. He’s pitched in four games for the Huskies already, posting a 2-1 record with a save. The former Falcon has a 3.60 ERA and 26 strikeouts with just seven walks. Cooperman has pitched at least five innings in three of his four games, and is batting .133 with four RBIs in the...

Falcons compete in state meet

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

After winning two individual gold, one relay gold and one relay silver at districts, Sarah Bobeck made her final trip to states to compete in three events. Through the two days of competition, Bobeck finished 17th in the 200-yard freestyle and 19th in the 100-yard freestyle. She also teamed with fellow seniors Madison Jewell and Cathryn Fitzsimmons and sophomore Julia Graver in the 200-yard freestyle relay to finish in 27th place.

Bobeck made a gutsy move to switch from swimming the...

Boys tennis team looks to rebuild

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Rob Benson thought last year was going to be a rebuilding season after losing a number of key pieces from Salisbury’s historic 2017 team. And it was.

But 2019 might be even more a rebuild for the long-term Falcon boys tennis head coach.

After finishing 4-9 last year in the Colonial League, Salisbury returns some of its key pieces from that season. But a number of them are switching positions as the upcoming spring season gets underway.

“My No. 1 last year is playing No....

Baseball has voids to fill

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Head coach Mike Pochron is entering his 19th season leading the Salisbury baseball team.

The 2019 season might be his biggest challenge in nearly two decades.

Salisbury (11-10 overall; 9-9 in Colonial League) returned to the district tournament last spring after missing out on the playoffs for the first time in eight years in 2017. But much of last year’s team has graduated—including 10 regular rotation players— and that has left Pochron with a largely unproved bunch.
