"Really proud of the way our men played today. Grand View beat us last year so this was a match our guys, especially our sophomores, had marked on their calendar. Winning two out of the three doubles matches to start the dual was big for us tonight and gave us good momentum going into the singles. With Cliff (Dwyer) out (#2 singles and #2 doubles with a sprained ankle), everyone had to step up. It was tough sledding at the top of the line-up tonight, despite great effort by both Manuel and Chase; but our 3-6 singles came through with nice wins. We can enjoy this win for a couple hours but will need to refocus quickly for our 2:30 match tomorrow at Morningside." – Todd Redenius, Head Coach

"Our women played solid singles tonight; very pleased with the patience and shot selection that Lily (Timmerman) showed on the court. That was a tough battle as both her and Alli play a similar style with good consistent groundstrokes. Lily was down at various points in both sets but rallied back for a good win. Dayana (Ortega) and Katheryne (Campos) were steady and aggressive in their play throughout the night – both in singles and doubles." – Todd Redenius, Head Coach
