Unfortunately when we arrived at Cardigan Mtn is was raining. Having to move indoor to the super fast rubberized surface proved to be the factor. The guys just couldn’t find the timing but they battled the best they could in a 6-3 loss. James W had the big serve going giving his opponent too much to handle with a 8-3 win. Will O, Otto V., Kyle G and Will A where all within a break away to stay in the match but couldn’t quite seal the deal. Clint M was thinking this surface is so fast I could ski on it. Winning 2 out of the 3 doubles gave us a strong finish and a good ending to a great experience for the guys. Nice job guys!
