From The Sidelines
"Overall this match was much closer than what the score shows, I'm very proud of the way the team competed, they played hard throughout the entire match and never gave up. It was a tough doubles point for us, we were so close to getting the first point, and if that would have happened it might have changed the momentum of the match for us. We had opportunities in singles, but we just weren't able to capitalize." – Associate head coach Frank Polito
