From The Sidelines
"I'm so happy to get this win today in our final home match of the season, and send the seniors off with a win in their final match at home. We played some great doubles today, our No. 2 and No. 3 teams did a great job to help us pick up a great doubles point. In singles, it was great to see both seniors and co-captains pick up wins in their last home match, and Ana did a great job to clinch the match for us today. Blanche played a good solid match, while Isabella picked up a huge win, beating the reigning Horizon League Player of the Year after staying mentally and physically strong in the third set. We need to keep this momentum going next weekend, and close out the regular season play on a high note." – Associate head coach Frank Polito
