"We were led today by Mihaela, she had two great wins over players from UConn and Army and will play in the finals of the A Flight tomorrow. I think she played her best tennis as a Ram. The rest of the team battled throughout singles and doubles, coming up on the short end. I am pleased with our focus and the progress after a week of practice." - head coach Tim Murphy
