PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES
On the men’s match against Schreiner.
“The men came out and had several close doubles matches. We were real close to taking a 2-1 lead in the doubles. Unfortunately, we fell behind 3-0. I was proud of the guys because they kept fighting very, very hard in the singles matches. We ended up with a respectable score of 2-7, but it was much closer than the score indicated.”
On the men’s win over Concordia.
“The men’s match was just incredible. Every doubles match was just amazing for us. You look at some of the highlights, we won 8-1, but a lot of those matches were close. At No. 1 doubles, we were down 5-0 before coming back to win 8-6. At No. 3 doubles, we were actually down a break before coming back to win that 8-4. That just set the tone for the singles and we just had so many close matches this year where we just fell behind 2-1 and it’s just so hard to bounce back from the singles matches when we don’t have the momentum. But they kept it up in all the singles matches. “
