It wasn’t that the link-up play was sloppy or that the team couldn’t march their way towards their opponent’s 18-yard box. The offense’s lack of production boiled down to the failure to adhere to one simple phrase.

Seniors Brienne Minor and Kate Fahey were honored for the University of Michigan women's tennis team.

Each senior has found success separately, with countless accolades, from All-Big Ten Honors to NCAA Championships, split between the two. But it is only right that the pair shone most brightly on their senior night as just that — a pair.
