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-opening loss against Pen Argyl.

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 early going.

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.
