The Cougar two dubs tandem of Max Toy/Cam Sassano survived a third set for a 6-0, 2-6, 6-1 team-clinching point. The fourth victory came at the second singles slot where sophomore Blake Huff rallied for a 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 finish. Brycen Skinner fought admirably but fell in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4 in the three singles position.
Coach Mullen reflected, "These boys have navigated a tough week of tennis and battled at all spots. I am very proud of their individual efforts, and the early-morning performance we had on Saturday after an hour-plus long bus ride to Gibson Southern was impressive. This Cougar tennis team continues to meet my high expectations."
