BROWNINGS' BULLETS: “Today we played very well. Doubles play at 1 and 3 was solid. In singles play we were challenged in the first sets by Richmond but ultimately we were able to push a little bit harder and were able to run away with it in some second sets. Richmond is a very good team and what was key for us today was our energy. The doubles point was key for us once again. We have shown again that we are a tough team when it comes to doubles and it helped us to gain momentum heading into singles. I was very impressed by everyone’s play today.”
LOOK AHEAD: The Colonials will be back in action tomorrow for an 11 a.m. matchup at William & Mary
