“The team earned a hard-fought win,” NLS head coach Chad Schmiesing said. “We had another phenomenal night with (the) weather.“(No. 2 singles player) Amyra Gamez played probably the best match I have seen her play. She moved well and drove her forehand to control points. (No. 3 singles player) Ella Weiland continues to impress me. She is such a worker and perhaps the most patient player I have ever coached. (No. 1 singles player) Mya Mayhew also got a singles win tonight. Mya has been moving so well and that has been her strength all season. She did a great job of staying composed and mentally tough to earn a win.”
