Freshman Brianna Williams
On a successful weekend last Saturday (two singles and doubles victories):
BW: "The matches coming up are going to be a lot tougher than last weekend. Duke and North Carolina are ranked 8th and 15th in the nation, so we definitely have to be ready to play."
On what the team needs to do this weekend to be successful:
BW: `We need to play at our highest level this weekend. We also need to show lots of team support and spirit and I think that will also help us."
On what you have been doing at practice this week in preparation for Duke/UNC:
BW: "We have been trying to hit a lot of strokes. We have been working on more consistency in our singles and doubles play. Just hitting a lot of shots."
On playing on the road for the first time this spring:
BW: "It might be little bit in their favor, but I don't think that it will play to much into the outcome of the match."
