Highlights;

                Jon Lee started his match down 2 games to 5.  His opponent had a very strong serve and wicked slice backhand.  Jon steadily adjusted to his style and came from behind and won 6 of the next 7 games to win the match.  Peter Higgins also had a slow start, he was able to come back and win 8 straight games after losing the first 3 games.  Sage Harris dominated her opponent, beating her in 8 straight games.  Jacob Leighton and Donovan Ruiz did a nice job winning many games in their match, leading for most of it,  but let it slip away at the end.  Brian Liu and Ethan Blatt also had a good match.  They started the down 1 game to 4 and were able to chisel away at their opponents, winning 4 additional games before the set ended.  Kayla Sheldon and Tyrone Freston played last and were in a pressure situation because Hyde Bath needed them to win in order to avoid a 3-3 tie.  They came through in the clutch and won their match 8-4.  A well played match by both schools.
