Quotes from the Weekend
Head Coach Lee Taylor Walker
“This weekend was everything we hoped it would be and more to get us prepared for our season. Several of our girls stepped up and showed us a level we haven't seen before. In order to reach our goals, we have to improve our doubles and have someone step up to play at the No. 1 position. So that will be our focus the next few weeks as we get closer to the ITA Kickoff Weekend. Off the court, the team is bonding well and we have enjoyed Hawaii so much. We are very grateful to have this opportunity and really believe it's given us a head start on our competition.”
