On the day…
“I think it’s great that we were able to come from behind today after losing the doubles point and win four singles matches against a really great Georgia team. It says a lot about what our guys are becoming. We continued to grow up and fight. hard. They were rewarded for that today and we were very pleased for our Italian connection. Giulio {Perego]and Guido [Marson] pulled us through with two wins at the end that were the difference. Switching thoughts to tonight’s match against UTSA, they are a very tough team that we were very concerned about. “

On the win over UTSA…
“We had good doubles point again. Kenner [Taylor] continues to shine in the doubles. I was pleased to get some of these guys matches against a good in-state opponent. Pierce [Rollins] got two wins today, which is great for his confidence. It was great to see Matthis [Ross] and Mathis [Bondaz} get wins in a couple significant matches against tough opponents. I liked that Kenner got rewarded with a singles win in the last match on the court. Stefan {Storch] played solid today too. We got a lot of a lot out of that match. I think going forward that really helps gives us some confidence. It boosts the morale of the team to play those types of matches and it was just a really good day for Texas A&M tennis. “
