Coach Tanoue: “It was really nice to be back competing after the winter break and going to TCU was a great way to get the stretch run of our season underway. We were able to see some solid performances from the team but I know our group is eager for the next opportunity to achieve the level of performance that its knows it’s capable of. We’ll get that chance right away with a pair of matches next weekend with WVU and Akron.”
