Coach Isaac was very happy with the season and feels that the program has taken tremendous steps this season. "The guys really battled hard today and we pushed this match pretty far. Our hope going in was to hopefully get 2 doubles points to really put some pressure on. Clinton & Jesse got us a point but unfortunately we came up short in some other matches. We played well in several singles spots but again only got the win at 2 where Clinton defeated Bukatin. This season we took a huge step forward. We lose two great seniors in David Tedone & Patrick Loganbill and I am very thankful for what both of them have brought to this program!"
