Reichenbach earns two golds

Friday, May 25, 2018 by TODD KRESS in Sports

For numerous reasons, Salisbury senior Jack Reichenbach admitted he didn’t have his best jumps at this past week’s District 11 Class 2A Track and Field Championships. But it didn’t seem to matter much.

Reichenbach was crowned champion in both the high jump and long jump events on Day 1 at Whitehall High School. It was the second straight gold medal for Reichenbach in the long jump, but the first time he was able to capture gold in the high jump.

Baseball falls in first round

In the postseason, it’s all about just finding a way to win the game. It doesn’t have to be pretty. It doesn’t need to be a blowout victory. It’s only about finding a way to get the win.

On Monday, in the District 11 Class 3A quarterfinals, Palmerton did just that against Colonial League foe Salisbury. Fighting for their playoff lives, the No. 4 seed Bombers edged the Falcons in dramatic fashion with a walk off single in the bottom of the seventh inning, advancing with a 3-2 win.

Softball falls in Colonial League title game

Salisbury coach Jeff Appleman isn’t afraid to issue intentional walks. When he walked Northern Lehigh’s Kaitlin Hoffman three times last week in the Colonial League championship game it looked like the strategy might work all three times. The third time was the charm for the Lady Bulldogs, who went on to beat Salisbury 5-3 to win their first Colonial League championship since 2010.

Falcons advance

Just about midway through the regular season, Wilson beat Salisbury 7-1. The Lady Warriors hoped that would be much the same story when the two teams met in the wild card round of the Colonial League playoffs, but the Falcons had other ideas.

Salisbury (15-4) put together a four-run third inning and topped off the game with a five-run fifth inning for a 10-0 win and a ticket to the league semifinals.

Falcons pull out win over Lions

Thursday, May 10, 2018 by TODD KRESS in Sports

While the rest of the Salisbury baseball players were celebrating in the dugout and starting to rake the infield dirt, Ryan Miller took a jog through left field and into the woods behind the fence.

Moments earlier he had connected on a walk-off homerun that completed Salisbury’s comeback bid to keep its district playoff hopes alive. He wanted that ball back as a souvenir.
