RIGHT NOW I LIKE

They’re pretty self-motivated kids. It’s good to have some experience like Paul and Luke to lean on. They’re very helpful with the younger players.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE

We need to concentrate on getting our first serves in with some consistency and power. If we can do that, the guys that get the high percentage of first serves in are the guys that win.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM

We’re going to build this thing each week and hopefully by the end of the season we’ll see some positive results. They’re a good group of kids.

ROSTER

Paul Luttrell, Luke Meares, Jaren Evans, Blake Bronson, Alex Pence, Travis Knell, Elijah Howard, Cody Bingham
