There were strong performances by everyone on the team, but everyone hit some slumps throughout the day. The Aggies look to bounce back strong from the disappointing finish with a strong SIVA Crossover performance next Saturday.

On the first team, OH Jason Fellman suffered an injury in the 2nd set against Crackers and Rice, and Opposite Mason Duhon was unable to play in the first match. On the second team, OH Brett Wolfe and MB Justin Holzworth were unable to attend. In spite of this, TAMU2 split sets with Texas1
