Comments From SL-O Coach Dan Taylor:

After seeing the guys play so well last Friday, I felt confident they would come away with a win against Cherokee as well. I was hoping they wouldn't overlook this meet, thinking about the match with LeMars tomorrow instead. And they did end up doing a great job of staying focused on the task at hand. The gusty wind was definitely a factor, but our players were moving their feet and making adjustments so that they were in position to make solid contact and remain consistent. Parker had a challenging match at #4. His opponent was hitting some nice passing shots when Parker approached the net, and also put pressure on Parker by coming in himself. But he played two solid games at the end to seal the win, which was really good to see. Starting 2-0 is a terrific way to build up momentum before our big match with LeMars. All 3 of our meets last year were extremely close, so it should be another tough battle again this year.
