Two Salisbury players competed in the District 11 singles Class 2A tennis tournament last week.

The Falcons’ No. 1 singles player Dylan Weber won his first match at the tournament, while Salisbury’s No. 2 singles players Chris Marinos face the tournament’s top seed and lost in the first round.

Weber came into the event unseeded. Only the top eight players in the 32-payer field are seeded.

Weber beat unseeded Raymond O’Neil of Jim Thorpe 6-0, 6-1 in the first round before falling to No. 3 seed Michael Swope (Palisades) in the second round, 6-0, 6-3.

Last week’s Colonial League tennis tournament was a chance for individuals to prove where they stood amongst the league’s top players. Unfortunately for Salisbury, the Falcons had very little success.

No Falcon was able to win a match and advance to the next round of Wednesday’s win-or-go-home tournament. Moravian Academy doubles teams won both of the doubles tournaments, while Saucon Valley took two of the three singles brackets.

While Salisbury’s season opener against Allen was postponed, the rest of its first week of Colonial League play was a bit of a roller coaster ride. And that’s to be expected early with limited practice time on the field together.

The Lady Falcons sit 2-2 in conference play after starting off this week with a tough 6-5 defeat against Wilson on Monday. Salisbury took care of business against Northern Lehigh (4-3) and Catasauqua (24-0) last week after rebounding from a 10-0 season-opening loss against Pen Argyl.
