Salisbury tennis keeps rolling

Salisbury’s girls tennis team hasn’t lost a match against a Rowan opponent since 2001 when the Hornets fell to West Rowan.
Salisbury won 9-0 at home against East Rowan on Wednesday.
Kayla Honeycutt, Kathryn Rusher, Grace Steinman, Maria Capito, Emily Capito and Julia Honeycutt rolled in singles, as the Hornets dropped no sets and only one game.
Kayla Honeycutt-Maria Capito, Rusher-Steinman and Emily Capito-Julia Honeycutt were the winning doubles teams. The Hornets (2-0) , the defending 2A state champs, lost only two games in doubles.
Salisbury fell to Concord 1-0 in its season opener on Wednesday.
Salisbury surrendered only three shots on frame but couldn’t completely hold off the potent attack of the visiting Spiders.
Salisbury got outstanding play from Christian Uribe, Jamie Henriquez, Joshua Lynch and Bryan Fragoso.
As the defending champ, Salisbury was ranked No. 1 in 2A in preseason, but the Hornets have a host of new faces.
“There is no question that we will have some adjustment struggles, especially early,” SHS coach Matt Parrish said. “We lost more than 90 percent of our scoring from last year and have eight new starters. It’s going to take some time to find our new identity, trust one another, and become comfortable in new roles and positions.”
The Hornets travel to 4A Lake Norman tonight for another challenging contest.
