"This match was a battle from start to finish," said Niners head coach Billy Boykin. "Both teams competed very hard and it really could have gone either way. I give credit to Coach Bates and senior-led St. Bonaventure team: they outplayed us on the big points. We're still learning as a team and I believe that our best tennis is still in front of us."
