“The doubles team of Noel Gasaway and Emma Everitt went to three sets resulting in a win,” she said. “Elle Dunham was a last minute move to third singles and played a tough match; both girls were on their game. I was very pleased with Elle, she is a versitile player this season that I have been able to put anywhere and she has pulled through with a win for us.”
