“I was really proud of how our team played in the key moments of the match. They trusted their training and stuck with the plan. I felt every person did their job exactly as they were asked today. Complete team effort and a great result because of it. We had stellar play at one and two singles were key and our senior, Nancy Menjivar put a stamp on the win with a decisive 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 6,” said Roghaar.
