In the doubles portion of the match, Liberty managed to secure the early advantage by clinching the doubles point with comfortable wins on courts two and three. However, despite the strong start, Yale mounted a comeback during the singles matches, claiming four straight wins to ultimately snatch the 4-3 win from Liberty.
This encounter between Liberty and Yale marked their first official spring match, although the teams had previously faced off in a hidden dual on Sept. 16. During the previous encounter, Yale had emerged victorious in five out of nine matches against Liberty.
Head Coach of Liberty expressed appreciation for the competitive nature of the match and highlighted the team’s resilience, citing areas of improvement moving forward. The Flames’ focus now shifts to their upcoming road trip to face the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Looking ahead, Liberty will travel to face the Penn State Nittany Lions, seeking their first road win of the 2024 season. The Flames previously bested Penn State with a 6-1 victory at home in 2023 and hold a 2-1 all-time record against the Nittany Lions.
