According to Head Tennis Coach Kieran Brown: “Salem played under extremely windy and cold conditions at Hollins University.  Still without #1 player, Elise Norton, Salem fought a Hollins University team with a strong tennis tradition.  Anna DeVoe had the dubious job of playing Hollin’s Maggie Bai, from China.  Bai was formally coached by the gold medalist coach of the Chinese Olympic Team.  Each of our players is bravely playing in positions that are not their natural positions for the team.  I am extremely proud of this team and their willingness to fill the gap where needed.”
