Coach Shawn Petersen comments:

Tough day conditions-wise for the girls today — chilly and steady brisk wind out of the north — but I thought our girls for the most part handled it well; It was nice getting a win today — the first of the year for us; I was very happy for the team — the girls have worked awfully hard and have played all of the best teams around — even though I know they’ve shown improvement, it’s tough to keep grinding when the losses are piling up. We played Glenwood earlier in the year and got blown off the courts — even though the scores look lopsided against a very talented Rams team, our girls really played well and competed very hard — I was proud of their efforts today. Atlantic travels to Carroll for the H10 Conference Tournament Monday, before competing in Individual Regional competition on Thursday at Shenandoah.
