“The WAC meet went really pretty well,” head coach Kayla Brown said. “I feel like we had a lot of close matches for doubles and singles both. Gabe did not end up winning any, but his last one went into a tie-breaker, so that was a really close match. I was really happy with how we did, even though the scores maybe did not reflect it.”
