From The Sidelines
"This was a tight match until the very end, and the upperclassman really played tough to help us get the win today. Although we started out flat in doubles, we were able to turn that around in singles play, and used the switch in momentum to help us get some quick first sets which led to crucial singles points for us today. We have a quick turnaround for our match at Oakland tomorrow, so we need to rest up and refocus for another tough match." – Associate head coach Frank Polito
