Due to the lack of Rams’ players, there was no number four singles match nor number three doubles match.
Nonetheless, coach John Mohr is proud of the team’s victory. “Our players were aggressive in their play, enabling them to take control of the match,” he said. “They were into the game both mentally and physically, and their play showed their dedication to the sport.”
