QUOTE FROM HEAD COACH TAYO BAILEY-DUVALL
“We can’t wait to participate in this year’s regional championship as it was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s always exciting to be able to compete with some of the best players in the region and some some of the best college tennis players. We have had some great practice since our trip to Indiana. Everyone is playing great and I am delighted to see us compete and apply some of the important tactics and mindsets we have been working on to training. “
