Head coach Mark Weaver on today’s matchup…

“Overall, I think it was a very decisive win and that was one of the things as coaches we’ve been asking for. It was very tricky conditions today as we had to handle the wind, but we talk about being able to play in any conditions and we did just that. Any time you can beat an SEC team 7-0 you have to be pleased about that, now our focus moves to next week with another pair of tough matches scheduled.”
