From The Sidelines
"We came out playing very strong in both matches today, and took care of business to get back in the win column. In both matches, we were able to play some strong doubles, which led to us getting out to quick starts in singles. The team has really been battling in matches lately, and it's nice for them to pick up a couple of wins and head into another week of practice feeling refreshed and ready to go." – Head Coach Frank Polito
· Cleveland State will host a pair of matches next Saturday (March 2), welcoming DePaul and Notre Dame (OH) into the MMTP.
