Quotes from the Match
Head Coach Lee Taylor Walker
“Glad our team bounced back today with great focus. To play three duels in less than 24 hours is not easy, but the girls had solid resolve. For us to get over the hump against top teams we have to improve our doubles. Right now, we just don't have it and that will be our main focus this week.”
