"It feels great to add one to the win column tonight. Our women have been fighting so hard lately with the last five out of seven before tonight's match going to five sets and we really needed this win. If our team continues to push themselves, then I think we can make a competitive run out of the remainder of this season.: -- Head Coach Ruthanne Duffy
