"I am really proud of this group of women.  We pushed this match to the very end and really made the #10 team in the country work to win.  We knew there were 5 points out there for us and we came very close.  Bree and Ashley played a great doubles match and then Madelyn won in straight sets at 6.  Madelyn might be our most improved player this year and it was great to see her get a singles win.  Prior to this year we had only won one match at nationals so it was great to get some more wins.  All of our players competed hard and played well.  We lose 2 great seniors in Miranda and Shayne and also lose Ashley Koester.  Miranda and Shayne were part of some great moments during their careers and will really be missed."
