Texas A&M Quotes

Head Coach Steve Denton

On the day’s matches…

“We had another very solid day, winning five-of-nine singles from the Gamecocks. After being beaten in doubles, I thought our team responded very well to the challenge. We had several three-setters today that definitely will make us better and we were able to gut out a few of those which is great for our confidence. We have another big battle with Florida tomorrow. I hope we get a break from the weather and get a window to compete.”
