Head Coach Pablo Montana
“It was a good weekend for us and I’m pleased with our overall doubles play. Dom and Luis won their respective flight and Blaise and Venk were points away from winning theris. In singles play we had great results with Dom winning his bracket and Luis reaching the finals of his bracket. We are improving each week and we will use this momentum for the ITA Regional in a few weeks.”
