According to Head Tennis Coach Kieran Brown, “Salem College’s Women Tennis Team fought a hard match against an extremely strong and deep Roanoke College.  The Spirits competed and represented Salem and a fashion that the school can be proud of.  Elise Norton (Little Rock, Arkansas) threatened Roanoke’s #1 player in the first set before succumbing to a reoccurring knee injury.  All in all, Salem played well against a strong Roanoke team. Great job ladies!”

The Spirits will return to action on Friday, March 3, as they host Ferrum College at 3:30 pm.
