We played a great match tonight. Thomas McGinnis was back at #2 and played a very strong mentally and physically. Hugh is a great player, but Thomas didn’t give him much room to make mistakes.
Senior, Dontrell Whetsell had the longest match of the night. He kept the ball in play, and used the court and his experience to his advantage. He was very patient and went for the winners when they presented themselves.
Rahi and Vineel played very strong at the bottom. Their placement and spin had their opponents running all over the court.
Pagan and Taylor played solid as a team. They really have fun together and that helps on the court.
Sam had our only loss and it was to an amazing player in Giannelli. I thought he played a better match tonight than the close loss he had against Beaufort. He’s learning to be more aggressive and when he can or can’t hit certain strokes.
