The Salem Dixie League AAA All-Stars were still alive as the paper went to press this week. Salem was scheduled to play Brookneal in a loser’s bracket game on Tuesday night in the double elimination tournament in Madison Heights.
Salem opened the tournament with a 9-6 win over Dinwiddie on Friday night. Salem had a bye on Saturday and got rained out on Sunday, returning to Madison Heights Monday to take on a strong Lunenburg team. Salem was defeated 14-0 to fall to the losers’ bracket and hoping to stay alive with a win against Brookneal Tuesday.
“Lunenburg was a really good, experienced team and our youth showed,” said Kendall Keffer, one of the Salem coaches. “This has been a great experience for the boys and their families.”
