    Women's Tennis Coach Audra Nothwher's comments after her teams performance at the MVC Individual Tournament, "Overall, I thought we played pretty well. We didn't always come out on the winning end, but we were in every single match. We're pretty banged up right now as a team, but we still competed hard. If we can get everyone healthy, we will be a team to reckon with in the conference."
