Salisbury's 37-34 overtime upset of then-No. 6 St. John Fisher last Saturday was punctuated by senior fullback J.D. Hook's 16-yard touchdown run. But the running game has been powering the offense all season. The Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) have averaged 289.8 rushing yards thus far, seventh-best in Division III. They compiled 312 rushing yards against a Cardinals defense that had surrendered an average of 288.7 total yards prior to Saturday's contest.

Katie Mullinix seems to have everything to be successful that any pitcher would want. The Salisbury senior has a relaxed attitude and confidence to use any of her six pitches at any time. That combination helped her open the softball season by throwing back-to-back gems (no-hitter and perfect game) March 1 and March 2 that will earn her notice in Sports Illustrated's "Faces In The Crowd" section Monday. "It was a great way to start the season," Mullinix said Tuesday night while on a break at her job at a Salisbury fitness gym. "It was our first games, and everybody was a little uncertain about how we'd play."

SEA GULLS ARE NOT the most appealing of birds. These "starlings of the sea" are loud, aggressive scavengers and able thieves. Not confined to shoreline, they flock on inland parking lots and landfills, feeding on human refuse like winged rats. Yet there is little justification to eradicate gulls simply because of their adaptive success and occasional nuisance.Nonetheless, on Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge off Cape Cod, federal workers poisoned the nests of 6,000 gulls in an attempt to restore "avian diversity" on the island and protect two endangered birds, the piping plover and roseate tern.

EWING, N.J. - The nation's top-scoring Division III offense carried No.7 Salisbury State to the most wins in school history and a first appearance in the Final Four, but that attack was nowhere to be found yesterday. Top-ranked College of New Jersey shut out the Sea Gulls for the first 36:21 of the game and rolled to a 19-4 NCAA Division III women's lacrosse tournament semifinal victory on its home field, Lions Stadium. The Lions, who were upset by Amherst in last year's semifinal, will go after their 10th national title at noon today when they meet No.4 Williams, an upset winner yesterday over defending champ Middlebury.

In a rematch of last year's Capital Athletic Conference men's soccer championship, which was decided in a shootout, Salisbury and Mary Washington again battled through scoreless regulation and overtime periods before settling things with penalty kicks. This time, the Sea Gulls (14-2-2) celebrated the championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament when Dan Lader converted his kick to give Salisbury a 4-2 shootout win in Fredericksburg, Va. The Eagles, last year's CAC champs, ended their season 13-3-3.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. -- If the Division III rankings put out by the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association are a true indication of the relative abilities of the teams, look for Salisbury State to have another mammoth season. Not that the Sea Gulls haven't been overpowering already. The top-ranked team crushed its supposed closest competitor, No. 2 Gettysburg, 14-3, yesterday for its 10th straight victory this season. The Gulls have now won 19 in a row, dating back a year [today] when this same Gettysburg team registered a 10-8 triumph in Salisbury.

The 2014 season ended with mixed results for Salisbury's senior class. That group leaves the Sea Gulls with a four-year record of 82-9 and national championships in 2011 and 2012. But a bid for a third crown ended with a 12-9 loss to Tufts in Sunday's NCAA tournament final at M&T Bank Stadium. Salisbury coach Jim Berkman expressed his thanks to the senior class after Sunday's loss. “Those guys all kind of refocused our group after last year [when the team lost to Stevenson in the semifinals]

In college lacrosse, there is no substitute for offense. Salisbury learned that lesson Sunday as Tufts scored 11 goals throughout the second and third quarters to emerge with a 12-9 victory in the NCAA Division III men's lacrosse championship before an announced 22,219 at M&T Bank Stadium. The Jumbos (21-2) ended their season with a 14-game winning streak and are now 2-1 in title games, with all three matchups against the Sea Gulls. Tufts defeated Salisbury, 9-6, for the 2010 championship, but the Sea Gulls returned the favor in 2011 with a 19-7 rout.

The two sides have met just twice, with Tufts capturing the 2010 national championship with a 9-6 win and Salisbury returning the favor the following year in a 19-7 rout. This is the Jumbos' third appearance in the NCAA tournament final, while the Sea Gulls have advanced to their 14th title game. Tufts (20-2) is riding a 13-game winning streak since losing, 15-8, to Williams on April 1. The team has matched the program's previous season high in wins, set by the 2010 squad that went 20-1.

When Jim Berkman says there is no Sam Bradman on Salisbury's roster, he was referring to the team's apparent lack of stars. Tufts coach Mike Daly certainly feels otherwise. Berkman said Tuesday morning that there is no Bradman or Kylor Berkman or Jason Coffman on the team, referring to the absence of a standout player on this year's squad. And that's fine with the veteran coach. “It's been a really enjoyable season,” Berkman said Tuesday morning during a conference call.

SALISBURY - Trailing, 3-1, after one quarter and in sore need of an energy boost, the Salisbury men's lacrosse team got some help from an unlikely source: its opponent. Taking advantage of an illegal stick penalty on Washington College junior Michael Trapp, the Sea Gulls scored one goal during the subsequent 3-minute extra-man opportunity and added another shortly after the penalty ended. More importantly, Salisbury woke itself from an early slumber and rediscovered its game for a 13-8 win over the visiting Shoremen in a Division III NCAA tournament semifinal before an announced 2,375 at Sea Gull Stadium on Sunday night.
