Class D / Msgr. Martin Report: Salamanca Looks to Build on Solid Spring
Salamanca finished the Spring season 4-3 and lost the Section 6 title game loss to Franklinville/Ellicottville 21-7.
“We are disappointed that our kids didn’t get the opportunity to play at the Stadium,” coach Chad Bartoszek said. “We always dream about that but we felt lucky to have a season at all.” This is Bartoszek’s 3rd season with the program.
The Warriors will get a huge boost by the return of senior center Tre Turner, a 3-year starter.
Tre is as consistent center as I have ever coached.” Bartoszek said. “He’s a team leader on the field and in the weight room. He has earned the respect of his teammates.”
Turner (5-9, 245) was named a team captain and also plays lacrosse.
“He’s not as vocal as some captains,” Bartoszek said, “but he leads with his actions. He had perfect attendance with all of our off-season stuff.”
Turner maintains an academic average of 90.
“He’s a good, solid student,” Bartoszek said.
Tre is the son of Natalie Stahlman and step son to Anthony Stahlman, Allegany Territory and his father is Raymond Turner along with stepmother Sarah Turner.
