At No. 2 doubles, Jake Bedwell and John Harner were able to take care of business in straight sets 6-4, 6-3 over Brennan Hughes and Evan Fuller. Michael Ramsey won at No. 3 singles 7-5, 6-3.
“No. 2 doubles played within their fundamentals like No. 1 doubles with success,” Johnston said. “Their serve fell away from them a little bit, but they were able to put it back together and win in straight sets. Michael Ramsey at No. 3 singles has been a bright spot in our lineup, because we didn’t quite know what to expect when we put him there early in the year. He’s lost once since we made that move.”
Washington will return today to the Ed Yarbrough Tennis Complex to take on the host Wildcats (16-3), who defeated Northeast Dubois (18-1) 5-0 Tuesday afternoon. Washington lost 5-0 at Jasper Sept. 23 for one of its three losses on the season.
“What we can take from the previous match is that we know that we can make no errors in order to win that match,” Johnston said.
