According to Head Tennis Coach Kieran Brown, “Having a healthier team and our #1 player (Elise Norton) certainly contributed to Salem’s win over Wilson College.  Salem took an early lead winning all three doubles matches and splitting the singles matches. Rachel Fichthorn had control of her match with a lead of 6-1, 4-2, when she had to retire from sickness. Congratulations on a strong win ladies.”
