• You lost only 19 games over seven matches in winning the WPIAL and PIAA titles. Did you feel seriously challenged in any of those matches? I don’t know how to say this without being cocky … I don’t know, well, there were a few. … Let’s just say the competition in high school tennis is a lot different than my other tennis.
• WPIAL representatives won five out of the six PIAA championships this season. Is tennis in Western Pennsylvania really that strong? Yeah, I would say so. We have a lot of top players.
