What a great Presidents Day weekend! Not only did we defeat Willamette in our first home match of the year. But we had visits from Justin Hayashi (2009)and Etienne Moshevich (2011). Justin was on campus as part of Whitman’s Entrepreneurial Conference. Even though Justin only graduated a few years ago he has a wealth of experience.

Much like their match against LCSC Sam/Andrew had chances going up a break several times but then struggled to hold serve.
In singles we couldn’t agree which matches to play indoors/outdoors so we flipped a coin to see which team would […]
