andreakaers14Winston-Salem, NC-The Salem College tennis team fought back after a tough loss against William Peace to cruise to a victory against Guilford. Andrea Akers (Pinnacle, NC) won both matches at #1 singles and #1 doubles. Salem improves to 6-4 overall with the win.

Head Coach Kevin Fleck said, "I am extremely proud of the way our team rebounded after the tough loss yesterday. 

"We showed a lot of heart to come back and play some of our best tennis all year long.  We beat a very good and well coached Guilford College team today.  We are looking forward to finishing the regular season on a strong note next week," said Coach Fleck.

The Spirits will travel to Averett on Wednesday for a non-conference match.
