Quotes
K-State head coach Danielle Steinberg
• "There's a lot of positive to take from today. I think we competed very well and played good tennis in most positions. We had some loose games in doubles and we know we can't afford those. Carolina and Palma played very well at one doubles and they both had a strong singles showing as well, which we're happy about."
