“Again, the guys played very solid doubles to help us gain a 3-0 lead. Singles was hard fought as Georgetown has some excellent players, especially at the top of the lineup. Even though Eli lost, it was one of the best matches we have witnessed this year. Very proud of how our men played in the third set as we won two of the three matches that went to the third set.”

“It was really good to see our guys play well this afternoon after a hard fought win this morning. This team is getting better every day. It was great to finish the league regular season unbeaten but the next challenge is to win the Crossroads League Tournament next week. I’m looking forward to seeing our guys compete at a high level. These kind of days where we beat two very good teams in on e day will pay huge dividends as we move through the season and into playing tougher teams in the spring.”
