"We are playing Hawaii this Saturday.Having not played this school in recent history and not knowing much about them, we are working hard to prepare our team generally. We are looking for doubles improvement, specifically, as we lost the point in the CSU match. As a team, we are looking to come together Saturday and execute in doubles and singles."
