“The men followed up yesterday’s sweep with another today, and with that take us into the winter break 5-4.  I was really pleased with how well the team prepared for today’s match – there was no complacency after yesterday’s win, and everyone came out ready and dictated play from the first rally onwards. We can all take a well-earned break now, and then set our sights on a high match versus current National Champions Harvard at home on January 9. ”
