From The Sidelines
"This was one exciting match. It came down to one of our seniors, Jana, who just took care of business in her singles match after returning to the lineup with a big heart and a ton of fight. This was definitely a team win today, and it started in doubles when we were able to get off to a good start and pick up the early point. We were then able to carry that momentum into singles play and we just went out and battled on all six singles courts. This was a great jump start to get us on track this Spring, and the team's hard work throughout the first few weeks of practice is starting to pay off." – Associate head coach Frank Polito
