His thoughts on tonight’s match are that Griffin (West) lost his first match of the season to a really good player and that Ryan (Goettemoeller) stepped up with a good win coming off of a tough loss at Elida on Monday.

“He also said that our first doubles team played better tonight against a good team. My thoughts are that there’s no shame in these last two losses against a much-improved Elida team and Centerville’s B team who is really good as well. We will bounce back. There is a lot of fight in our kids.”
