COACH HANSON SAID
“This was a very cleanly played match for us against an opponent that’s been playing at a high level recently. I was pleased with our play by play focus and overall outcome. It’s always a joy to allow the non-starters in our program match experience especially in our home gym. This sequence of matches is good preparation for post-season play and we now prepare to face a quality non-conference opponent on Thursday.”
