Athletic Updates

May 11, 2017

The ACCAC playoffs were held this week and Salem was well represented. On Monday the varsity girls traveled to Kings Academy to take on the Lions for the third time this year. The first two times these teams played Kings came away with one goal victories but on Monday it was a different story. Behind a quick goal to start the game, Salem cruised to a well-earned shutout of Kings to advance to the championship game against Valley Forge. That game will be played Thursday May 11th at 3:45 @ Upper Bucks.

Varsity baseball saw their season come to an end as injuries took their toll when Upper Bucks cruised by Salem. Tuesday the middle school girls’ soccer team played Coventry for the championship but despite one of their best efforts could not contain the Eagles from Coventry.  Track has its big ACSI meet this Saturday at Bangor Park and between rain drops if you get the chance come on out and watch the many students involved in this program.

Please do not forget to sign up online for the sports banquet on May 20th.

The Athletic Department is in need of a booster club president for next year, a fall snack stand coordinator, a middle school boys’ soccer coach, and a middle school girls’ basketball coach.  If you are interested please contact the school. Game schedules can be found on our athletic page as well as using our website to reach the ACCAC. As always come on out and make some noise for your Salem Eagles.

It is hard to believe, but, the spring season is almost over with our teams competing to make league playoffs. On Monday the middle school baseball team had a chance to tie the game up against Valley Forge. But, in the end, runners were stranded and they came up short. The varsity baseball teams also visited Valley Forge but were no match for the Patriots.

Tuesday was ladies day at Valley Forge where the middle school girls played to a tie while the varsity ran out of gas in the second half.

Next week is playoffs for all of our teams so if you get the chance, come on out and support them. Tuesday the middle school girls will be playing for the championship against Coventry. That game will be played at Coventry starting at 3:45.

The varsity teams play on Monday but as of this writing places are TBA.  Track continues to run well at their Saturday meets with school records being broken.  Please do not forget to sign up on line for the sports banquet on May 20th.

The varsity girls’ volleyball advanced to the second round of the PIAA District 11 playoffs with a game against Nativity. This game was a rematch of an earlier contest that saw both teams playing hard but in the end Nativity won the match in five games. The Lady Eagles put up a valiant effort in defeat and should be commended for playing the season with seven players.

This week, though a short one, has been a notable one for our high schoolers as they look toward the future: On Tuesday, the seniors and juniors traveled to a Christian college fair, while on Wednesday morning, the juniors and sophomores persevered through the PSAT.

October 14, 2016

It is hard to believe that the regular season has ended for our fall sports and that the ACCAC playoffs are next week. In case you are keeping track, Christmas is only 71 days away while the first basketball game of the season is 55 days away.

This last week of the regular season was a busy one for your Eagles:

On Monday, the varsity girls took a trip to Saucon Valley to take on the Panthers in a key district 11 game, but the prowling Panthers proved to be too much in taking down our Lady Eagles.

Tuesday saw all four teams playing three different opponents. The middle school boys have made their season seem like a Dunkin Donut drive through when they posted their sixth shutout of the season over United Friends. The varsity boys played one of our longest running rivals in the Faith Roseto Lions but in the end, despite two overtimes in a very exciting match filled with a lot of shots, our Eagles settled for a tie. The middle school girls continued their dominating ways against Fairview in match that saw both of their wins by two points. In a first for Salem the varsity lady Eagles finally swept the season series against Fairview, a team that has dominated us over the years.

Friday our teams visited Concord and came away with a sweep.  Saturday, the varsity girls are home to Catasauqua to end the regular season. Game time is 11:00. For the season the varsity girls and both of our middle school teams finished first in their divisions. The middle school boys and the varsity girls were undefeated in the league.

Next week is the start of the ACCAC playoffs and the last chance to see your Eagles in action.

Tuesday, the varsity girls will have a home playoff game with a start time of 4:00.On Tuesday, the varsity boys will be on the road to Valley Forge for a playoff game that starts at 4:00. Thursday, the middle school teams will be starting their playoff games- the middle school boys play at 3:15, while the middle school girls play at 4:00. Both of these games will be played at Upper Bucks. Should the varsity boys and girls win their games on Tuesday they would play Friday with championship games being played on Saturday. These games are being played at Upper Bucks.

Week five of the NFL season is in the books and once again, it is time to check on Americas new favorite Bad News Bear team the Detroit Lions. As you may recall (one of us with a little more excitement than others) a certain team from Philadelphia was playing a team from Detroit.  The Lions were looking like the beloved Rocky in one of his movies battered and beaten as they were grabbing players off of the waiver wire just to field a team but in the end, they found a way to win and slowed down the Carson Wentz bandwagon. Tom Brady threw for 400 yards impressive even if it was the Browns. Enjoy your weekend and remember basketball is only 55 days away with the Conestoga Tournament.

 

October 8, 2016

Many thanks to Christopher Columbus for sailing the ocean blue in 1492 as many of us are looking forward to a three day weekend. The calendar has turned to October and the first full week of this month was very busy.

Last Saturday the varsity girls clinched a playoff spot in District 11 with a win over Catasauqua making it four years in a row they have been to districts. Congratulations to our Lady Eagles who with only seven players keep pushing hard.

On Monday the Bears of Quakertown were in town but they were shut out by our volleyball teams and middle school soccer. The varsity boys crowned Kings to win their second game in a row.

Tuesday was a battle of Eagles as Coventry paid a visit to Salem.  The Salem volleyball teams did their part in shutting out the Eagles from Coventry while soccer took a split. The middle schools girls clinched the number one seed with their win over Coventry. The Middle School boys in a clash between the top two teams had a lead late but in the end settled for a tie. The tie was good enough to assure our Middle School boys the number one seed in the upcoming ACCAC playoffs. The varsity boys played hard but missing a few key players ran out of gas in their loss to Coventry.

Thursday the middle school boys took a trip to Valley Forge- not to visit George Washington but to take on the Patriots. The middle school boys won in a route.

On Friday Upper Bucks came into town and the middle school girls were handed their first league loss in a very competitive match.  On Dig Pink night the Lady Eagles sent the Bucks packing in a convincing win.  The varsity boys made it three wins in four games in defeating Upper Bucks.

Next week is the final week of the regular season with many games to be played.

Monday is a District 11 battle between the number three ranked class A Eagles and the number five ranked class 3A Saucon Valley at Saucon Valley.

Tuesday is a busy day as the volleyball teams travel to Fairview while the middle school boys visit United Friends and the varsity boys host Faith Roseto.

Thursday, the varsity soccer team hosts Brandywine in a first time match up.

Friday, the volleyball teams and varsity soccer take a trip to Concord. The final regular season game for our teams is on Saturday as the volleyball team takes on Catasauqua.

Week four of the NFL season has come and gone and it is time to check in our beloved Detroit Lions.  The Lions remind their fans of the movie Groundhog Day where the main character keeps having the same bad day over and over again. For the Lions they found themselves losing again by a close score, but what makes this loss so hard is that Chicago was missing some healthy players. The Lions loss proves that there are three things in life you can count on- death, taxes and the lions losing. Big game this weekend as a certain team that wears green is flying high at the prospects of taking advantage of a weak Detroit team. At least Tom Brady is back. Thank you once again Columbus for giving many of us a three day weekend.

Hard to believe it is October already and that Christmas is only 86 days away! Week four of the athletic season kept your Eagles busy even though it was a fairly light week.

Previous week:

On Monday , we had an old west showdown between the Eagles and the teams from Lehigh. The middle school teams made quick work in corralling the wild mustangs while the varsity was tracking down the Cougars.  The varsity girls made quick work of the Cougars to retain their number three ranking in district 11 while the boys behind a huge team effort almost caught the number one ranked soccer team in district 11, but fell one goal short in a very hard fought game- the way rivalry games should be.

Thursday brought in the Knights from Warren Tech to play our varsity and in this jousting match the Eagles made it a clean sweep. The middle school boys went safari hunting looking for some lions from Faith Roseto and came away with a very convincing win.

 

Friday saw the middle school girls looking to avenge their only loss of the season in a rematch with Calvary but Calvary in front of their homecoming crowd was victorious.

 

The first week of October brings in some key ACCAC matchups for your Eagles.

On Monday, the Bears of Quakertown come in to take on our middle school teams while our varsity boys play Kings and the varsity girls take on Quakertown.

Tuesday is a battle of Eagles as Coventry comes strolling into town and you will not want to miss this game as there is sure to be a lot of feathers flying.

Thursday the middle school boys look to keep rolling as they travel to Valley Forge while on Friday Upper Bucks pays a visit to Salem.  Salem will be hosting a “dig pink” night to honor those ladies who have survived the battle with cancer.

Week three of the NFL is in the books and I am reminded of a song from One Direction which is titled “The Story of my life” for lion fans our story is we come close but always find a way to lose- again. I know for you Eagle fans the Carson Wentz bandwagon is full but remember the season is 16 games and our favorite Quarterback Tom Brady will soon return. Enjoy your favorite team.

God has given us a beautiful day and I hope you get to be outside and enjoy it. The Eagles season keeps rolling along as our teams keep busy.

Last week athletics were busy.  The Lady Eagles visited our former ACCAC rival, the Warriors from Calvary, and came away with a split. The middle school girls put up a strong fight but lost in three to Calvary to suffer their first loss of the season, while the varsity girls playing shorthanded continue to dominate the Warriors who once again were left with that empty feeling. On Tuesday the Falcons of Fairview came to town, and in a very rare occurrence Salem came away with a sweep. Thursday the middle school boys went to Moravian and put up a fight before losing in the closing minutes of a well fought game. Friday West Chester played our varsity teams. The varsity girls beat West Chester in three games while the boys came close but could not pull it out against West Chester.

This week the action continues with some home games. Monday, the Mustangs of LCA tangle with our middle school while the varsity will look to cage the Cougars. Thursday brings in a newer team as our varsity takes on Warren Tech. On Thursday, the middle school boys travel to Faith Roseto.  On Friday the middle school girls look to even the score with Calvary in an away game.

Week two of the NFL season is in the books, but unfortunately for Lion fans we were not able to pull a “Remember the Titans” moment as the Lions were the Lions and found a way to lose. Enjoy week three and have a great weekend.

On Tuesday the middle school boys had a first place show down with Coventry and came away with a 1-0 shutout.

Thursday saw the invasion of the Patriots from Valley Forge and a chance for all of our teams to perform in front of our home crowd.  The middle school teams were victorious including the second straight shut out by the soccer team, while the girls won their match between division leaders.  The varsity girls were also involved in a battle of division leaders and came away with a victory. Salem’s varsity soccer ran out of gas in their game against the Patriots.

I hope you are enjoying our seventh heat wave of the season and that you are finding a place to be cool. The 2016-17 athletic seasons are underway and your Salem Eagles have been busy.

The varsity boys traveled to Kings Academy but came up short in their comeback to be defeated by the Lions. On Thursday, some of the big name teams in district 11 came to Salem to take on our varsity teams. In volleyball, the lady eagles fought hard but were swept by the Falcons of Saucon Valley. The varsity boys played against the Spartans of Notre Dame who proved to be too much for our Eagles. Friday saw our varsity teams play Faith of Fairless Hills while the middle school traveled to Faith Sellersville.  At Sellersville the middle school girls were winners while the boys played hard but came up short in the end.  The varsity girls took care of Fairless Hills while the boys tied in their game. Next week is a full schedule as well, kicking off Monday against LCA for the middle school and Lehigh Valley for the high school with all of those games away.
