From The Sidelines
"Coming into this match we knew it would be a tough test for us, but overall I'm proud of the fight that we showed throughout doubles and singles against a top-10 opponent in Ohio State. Siân played a great match today, and really stepped up her game to push her opponent with everything she had. Hopefully this will prove to be a learning experience for us as we move to the second half of our season and closer to Horizon League play." – Head Coach Frank Polito
