Coach Billy Pate on the match:
"This was another tough match and certainly much closer than the final score indicates. George Washington has a very strong group and fought us tooth and nail. Though we won a close doubles point and put together a 3-0 lead, it wasn't easy to get the fourth point. I was proud of how we won four second sets in singles to turn the momentum back in our favor. We look forward to getting back to work and preparing for an outstanding national field at the Blue Gray next weekend."
