Selling Points
“Incredible way to finish the fall season by earning many wins against top quality opponents,” co-head coach Michael Sell said. “We’re thrilled that Maggie (Cubitt) picked up a top 30 singles win and played at the elite level in skill and confidence she played at all weekend.”

“Every player earned multiple wins and showed tremendous improvement in their development. Our doubles play has improved since the start of fall and the growth that the group has shown gives us huge momentum heading into the dual season in the spring.”
