QUOTING HEAD COACH SASHA SCHMID
“There were definitely some things from today’s match we have to work on before Sunday. We’ve had two tough losses to start conference play so we really want to get the ship righted as we move through the rest of the conference season. It’s a situation where we need to come together, build up our spirit, and really fight for those wins. Sunday will be another tough match so we’ll need to regroup and be ready to give it our best.”
The Hawkeyes are back in action hosting Michigan State on Sunday, March 18 at 10 a.m. (CT) at the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Complex. Admission is free.
