I was happy to see that we started off strong and ready to set the tone for the year. Pfeiffer was a tough opponent and I was happy to see us stay determined to win the match in four. I think it says about our team's grit, especially with the youth we have out on the court." -- Head Coach Ruthann Duffy.
