Cole Fiegel and Andrew Li have also come up with some big contributions in the doubles point, the pair is 7-1 on the season.

Head coach Kenny Thorne says: “Sometimes when we head to Miami it is our first outdoor match. I feel like we’ve been playing outdoors most of the spring so that helps our preparation. Aljosa Piric, a former coach at Tech, is coaching there now and he will do a great job. We are looking forward to a tough match.”
