Thoughts From Head Coach Jeff Maren "William & Mary is a solid team who took it to us in the beginning of doubles. We rebounded but couldn't quite get that point. However, the girls came out in singles with a lot of fight in them, and they all played well throughout to secure the win. I'm very proud of how much belief and confidence we are showing on the court. I can't wait for our next match. To God be the glory!"
