He was set to return the next day validate that performance in finals. But after coming down with an illness hours after running the preliminary heats, he was unable to attend finals.

Softball team falls to Tigers

Friday, April 19, 2019 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

Salisbury was able to contain the hot-hitting Northwestern Lehigh lineup through much of last Wednesday’s softball game. Eventually, the Lady Tigers began to chip away and put a few runs on the board for a 6-2 win over the Lady Falcons (3-5 overall, 3-5 Colonial).

Even down late in the game, a young Salisbury team looked to do some damage, but fell short.
