Nicholas, Adams lead grapplers

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Due to low roster numbers, it’ll be virtually impossible for Salisbury to end up on the winning end of most of its matches this wrestling season.

The Falcons, who finished 0-8 in the Colonial League last year, graduated just one senior in Nico Scarcia, a regional qualifier last winter. But the bigger issue comes as eight other starters from last year aren’t returning in 2015-16 for a number of different reasons. That results is a lineup of just five wrestlers on this year’s varsity team, including one newcomer in senior Christian Major (138 or 145 pounds).

Boys win opener

Dylan Belletiere took an awkward fall as the first half whistle sounded. Salisbury’s senior guard had rolled his ankle on the Falcons’ last-second possession.

After coming out to start the second half, the injury forced Belletiere to the sideline to get that ankle taped. When he returned to the court, he played a pivotal role in helping Salisbury avoid a scare from Blue Mountain early in the fourth quarter.

Girls fall to Dieruff

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 by TODD in Sports

With the recent success Salisbury has had against Dieruff, there was optimism for the Lady Falcons as they tipped off their season on Friday night.

But those hopes were quickly dismissed on the Huskies’ home court.

After falling into a 10-7 hole early in the second quarter, Dieruff closed the half on a 17-3 spurt to hold a commanding 24-13 advantage at intermission. Salisbury (0-1) got to within seven points early in the third, but the Huskies’ scoring avalanche couldn’t be stopped in their 50-40 victory at Dieruff High School.

Bauer chooses Broncs

It may have only been an unofficial visit this past summer, but there was a moment when Lindsay Bauer stepped on Rider University’s campus that all but sealed the deal.

“I told my parents right then and there in the bookstore, ‘I’m done. I don’t want to look anywhere else. I really like it here,’” said Bauer. “But they told me that I needed to keep an open mind and explore other places just to check things out.”

When the Salisbury girls basketball team tips off its season on Friday night in the first of back-to-back nonleague contests, the Lady Falcons will look completely different from last winter.

The Falcons graduated four senior starters from last year’s squad, including leading scorer and Lehigh University recruit Meagan Eripret, who finished as the program’s leader in career points and averaged 18.5 points in 2015. Kelly Gonoude (8.1 points), Holly Szita (5.2) and Jenna Keet (3.8) also graduated after the Falcons qualified for both leagues and districts a year ago.
