McKenzie balances school, sports, parenting

Saturday, August 3, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

It may sound a bit cliche, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a student with as much courage and willpower than recent Salisbury High School graduate Delano McKenzie.

And you can say that about both his athletic career and life outside of school.

When McKenzie was just 17 years old, he welcomed a beautiful daughter into his world named Isabelle. He wasn’t even legally labeled an adult yet.

Falcons knock off Spartans

Friday, July 26, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

With the upcoming A-Town Throwdown basketball tournament set for this week, the Salisbury boys’ basketball team will get a bit of a break from summer league play at Cedar Beach Park.

But when the Falcons do return to the court, they will be the No. 3 seed in the Small School Division playoffs in the Cedar Beach Summer League that begin on July 30. It’s easy to say that Salisbury might be playing its best basketball of the summer right now.

Loss to NV ends Legion season

Friday, July 19, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Salisbury head coach Scott Heppenheimer has seen his team struggle hitting the ball all summer. And that issue was evident once again over the weekend during the Lehigh Valley Legion playoffs.

The Falcons mustered just four hits and struck out 11 times in a 7-3 loss to Northern Valley on Saturday evening at Church Lane Park. The loss ended Salisbury’s run in the LVL playoffs.

Girls soccer falls to Bangor in LVSSL playoffs

Salisbury girls soccer goalie Lily Schimeneck recently suffered an injury in the summer that put a kink in the Falcons’ lineup. Head coach Rick Babyak had been using four different goalies over the past couple of weeks as Schimeneck recovered from a shoulder injury.

In the second round of the Lehigh Valley Summer Soccer League playoffs on Monday, Quinn Wittman, the Falcons’ top goal scorer, was used in goal in the first half. Unfortunately, the Falcons seemed to miss her scoring at her normal forward position.

Warmkessel is a key part of Falcons’ success

It’s clear how much Quinn Warmkessel means to the Salisbury boys basketball team. Despite missing half of the Falcons’ games in the recent Bash at the Beach tournament, Warmkessel was named Most Valuable Player of the small school division as Salisbury won the title.

He’s also been making that same impact all summer in the Cedar Beach Summer League. Last Thursday he played another big role as the Falcons defeated Saucon Valley, 45-38, at Allen High School.

Thursday, July 11, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Jack Reichenbach had high hopes for his first collegiate season at the University of Rhode Island. But it’s hard to imagine the former District 11 long jump champion would have imagined what transpired this past spring.

The highlight of Reichenbach’s freshman season was a first-place finish in the long jump at the Atlantic 10 Outdoor Track and Field Championships, jumping a career best 7.38 meters. He also etched his name in the Rhode Island record books.

Falcons fall to unbeaten So. Parkland

Thursday, July 11, 2019 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Neither team had many chances on Sunday evening. But when South Parkland did, it took advantage.

The Trojans scored four runs in the top of the sixth inning and that’s all they would need to defeat Salisbury, 4-0, on the Falcons’ home field over the weekend. South Parkland (14-0) finished the season unbeaten as it heads into this week’s Lehigh Valley Legion playoffs as the top seed.

For Salisbury (5-10-1), it heads into the playoffs in a bit of a slump after dropping its last six games.
