She continued her strong run of matches, staying composed and finishing points. Cecily Aufenthie and Taylor Miller played well in a duo. I’m happy for our veterans that they were able to put in a good effort tonight. Naomi was a soldier. Tonight she showed some courage. First set very disputed. Close the second set. She rolled her ankle but continued to struggle. I’m really happy for her that she was able to get the win. Finally Taylor Depover continued his big stretch of play in 2 singles. She has been constant for us this year. We can always count on her to give her best and make her competitive in any way she can. Great overall night for the Tigers. Thank you so much to our fans for coming and supporting us.”
