I think we competed really well in both doubles and singles. Louisville is a talented team, and I think that we showed some grit and some discipleship which allowed us to pull off some competitive matches today. It was also great to play in front of a big home crowd and we appreciate all the support we have had for the team today.
We hope to see everyone out for the next home game against Central Florida in two weeks. Now we will look to rest and regroup and then focus our attention on some great competition coming up in Seattle.”
