“Williams picked up two of the three doubles matches behind strong play from their top two pairs. Bryan Chow and Trey Meyer won their pro-set 8-2 at number one, and Felix Sun and Matt Micheli took their’s 8-3.
Looking to continue the momentum into singles play, Williams got a quick win at number two from Felix Sun. Middlebury then grabbed the number three match, but Williams rebounded with straight set wins from Will Petrie and Bryan Chow shortly after.”
