At the game

This was a very good home win as I thought the conditions were very difficult today. The wind was a bit swirling and I thought we did well by jumping on it in the doubles to put us in the lead. From there it was a fight with a pair of tiebreakers heading our way on lanes one and six. Our guys have done a good job of coping well with the circumstances and facing setbacks. We know that Kentucky is a really good team and that we can face those kinds of setbacks and get through that makes for a really great team win.
