From The Sidelines
"This was a great team win today! I switched No. 2 and No. 3 doubles this week, and both teams came out very strong today and really got us off to a great start. I thought we played awesome in doubles from start to finish, and getting that early point really gave us some momentum. In singles, the two freshmen set the pace for us, as Ana and Gaby put us up 3-1 pretty quickly, and then Isabella clinched the match for us with a great win at the top of the lineup. Isabella was playing somebody that is a tough matchup for her and she was able to come out on top this time. Now we just need to keep taking care of business and get ready for Northern Kentucky tomorrow." – Associate head coach Frank Polito
