"It was a tough outcome but we came out of the match with a lot of positives," commented assistant coach Felix Sun. "We played with great energy and showed grit against a strong Amherst team. We're excited to keep improving each day both on and off the court. We gotta get healthier and fitter as we've had some tough luck with injuries as well. Full speed ahead!"
