Wood called it “a great tournament. Our players are really starting to stroke the ball with some intensity and confidence. That improvement showed in our match against East and a very close match against Shelbyville. Hunter (Heckman) really stepped up today and played excellent at No. 1 singles. I am very proud of his mental game in all three matches today.”

“We went to Shelbyville to compete and leave it all on the court and that is exactly what we did today,” Wood said.
