Coach’s Outlook:
I have high expectations for this group, especially at the singles positions. Some team goals are getting to the next level in States and going back to back seasons as conference champs. Alessandro, Ashil, and Matt have committed to going the extra mile both on and off the court. Amazing student-athletes that inspire those around them. Max has a lot of experience at doubles and he has been working hard in the offseason. He is looking to partner up with one of our rising JV players to become a force at first doubles.
