According to Head Tennis Coach Kieran Brown, “Salem lost several long matches which made the difference in a loss to College of Notre Dame.  Elise Norton & Anna Devoe were down 6-1 in doubles, came back to tie it at 7-7, finally losing 9-7.  Losing the double early on came back to haunt Salem because they split the singles matches 3-3.  Michala Michaux won her match in a hotly contested battle in three sets.  Anna Devoe lost her match in three sets after playing a long doubles set and being on the courts for nearly 3 1/2 hours.  Rachel Fichthorn recorded her first singles win as a NCAA tennis player in decisive manner 6-2, 6-1.”
