Highlights;

Wyatt Lichtenger`14 struggled to get in his groove in the first set.  He made some adjustments and won a couple more games, but lost in the second.  Stefan El Base`15 had a solid showing at 2nd doubles.  He lost the first set 4-6 and led the second set 6-5.  However is opponent won the critical game to force a tiebreaker.  Unfortunately, momentum had switched and he lost the tiebreaker 1-7.  Nate Smith`15 again was called upon to play 3rd singles due to a missing teammate.  He had a number of games go to deuce and the score doesn’t accurately reflect how well he played, but lost in straight sets just the same.  Ben Mooney`16 and Elliot Wang`14 struggled with unforced errors in their match. They played better in the second set, but not good enough to win more games.  Richard Liu`14 and Chris Lutts`15 had a great first set, winning 4 games.  However, they stumbled in the second set and lost.  Not the way that the team wanted to end regular season play.  They used the first half of the ride home for quiet reflection in an attempt to focus on ways that they could improve their games prior to the MAISAD tournament matches in the coming week.
