The Salem Academy basketball team opened up their season on the road as they traveled to Salisbury to take on North Hills Christian School. The team put forth great effort but in the end, they came up short. Salem started off slow in the first half and dug a hole that they weren’t able to get out of in the second half, despite outscoring their opponent. The loss can be attributed to the twelve missed free throws by the Sabers. Angelina Pierre led the team in scoring with 14 points while Tochi Okoli contributed 10 points.
