From staff reports


WELCOME — Salisbury’s girls got the county’s biggest basketball win on Tuesday.

The Hornets took their Central Carolina Conference showdown at North Davidson, 61-47.

“It wasn’t our best offensive night,” SHS coach coach Lakai Brice said. “But it was strong enough. If we get five people in double figures, we’ll be a tough team to beat.”
