Comments On The Match

“There were no secrets coming into this match as Norton has a fine team with only 2 losses on the season. In the Canton Sectional they have the #1 and #2 seeds in singles as well as the #3 seed in doubles.  There is no doubt this is the type of match you want to play before tournaments.”

“With that being said, we had a big win at 1st doubles with our team of Sophie Flinner and Camryn McCrary pulling out the victory.  We also lost a heartbreaker at 2nd doubles in a 3rd set tie breaker and at 1st singles we had chances to get that match into a 3rd set as well.”
