“I was very pleased with our fourth place finish today, especially with the fact that everyone contributed points. We have lost a lot of close matches this year so the way we played today makes up for a lot of that. We showed a lot of determination in the extreme heat and played the best we have played all year.”

“Nate lost a tough first round match to Andrew Hrabik from Denison so it was a disappointing day for him as we were shooting for a top three finish. Nate didn’t quit though and finished in 5th place going 2-1 for the day.”

“I thought Willie played outstanding today. He served and hit the ball very well and just played with a lot of confidence. He ended up in fourth place which we were very happy about.”

“Riley and Nick got out of the gate strong today winning their pigtail match and then they upsetting the #3 seeded team from Shenandoah 10-8. They ended up getting 4th place which is excellent. This will definitely give them a lot of confidence heading into Districts.”

“I was very proud of how Jacob and Austin played today. They have struggled this year but they came together to get 8th place and by doing so, got us one point which helped get us 4th place in the tournament.”
