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,"...

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...

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....

PIAA NOTEBOOK PIAA Board needs to act soon on heat issues

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 by ROD FRISCO Special to the Press in HS Sports

With the debate over the length of the PIAA football season long in the rearview mirror, it would seem that football is status quo at the PIAA Board of Directors level.

It is not.

The PIAA Board is currently embroiled in a discussion - some might call it a battle - over how to handle a proposed heat acclimatization program that, no matter how it is implemented, will greatly affect the start of the football practice.

Prompted by concerns from the PIAA's Sports Medicine...

Guttman continues family legacy

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Two years ago, standing on the podium at districts receiving their medals, were two sisters. Senior Gabby Guttman and sophomore Danielle Guttman, both placed in the 500 freestyle and were able to help out Salisbury and share a special moment.

"Swimming with my sister was great," the younger Guttman said. "Her senior year was my sophomore year, and we both swam the same events, so at districts we were able to get onto the podium together, and that was really cool."

The two were...

Dee wins tourney title, closes in on 100

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 by The Press in HS Sports

Anthony Dee's quest to 100 wins got a lot easier as the Falcon's 126-pound wrestler earned five wins at the Falcon Wrestling Tournament on Saturday to boost his career total to 96.

Dee was named the meet's outstanding wrestler and won his weight class with four pins and a 6-4 overtime decision over Southern Huntingdon's Dison Myers in the final.

Hrebik reaches career scoring milestone

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

In the midst of the third quarter of last week's game against Wilson, Salisbury senior guard Megan Hrebik connected on a one-handed jumper in the lane during what was the Falcons' Senior Night.

It was a shot that Hrebik has mastered over her years as a Falcon. This shot, however, was more significant than any other field goal she recorded in her career.

With that field goal, Hrebik became the school's most recent 1,000-point scorer, and is the 14th Falcon to ever accomplish the...
