Coach Ohm's comments on the win.

"Tough competition for Ellie at the number one singles with Jacque Ingram and Sarah Woods being great players. (Ellie) Pushed through and fought to finish third place." said Ohm

 

"Cameron played her first round against Shenandoah's number two girl (she is currently number seven on the team) then she played great against the Saint Albert girl. Cameron pretty much dominated her and did exactly what we asked her to do." said Ohm

 

"Both doubles teams were very aggressive at the net which helped win points. Ruby and Brooklyn started off a little bit slow but started playing together and communicating on the court. They also took control of the first match and then took care of the second one pretty easily. Sierra and Brielle pretty much dominated both of their matches Sierra was very aggressive at the net while Brielle's serve was spot on most of the day." said Ohm
