[su_spacer size=”40″] “It was a good start to the tournament for Paul, and he played a couple of great matches,” said head coach Manuel Diaz. “Emil had an impressive first match, and I was proud of the way Walker bounced back in his second match of the day. Nick won his first match but let one slip away in the second round. Overall our guys competed well, and hopefully we can continue to improve as we move forward this weekend.”
