"We started off FCIACs just as we hoped, with a shutout," said Martin, with the Wave scoring its 15th shutout this season. "Unfortunately, early on in the second set my opponent was returning a serve and twisted her ankle making that the end of the match. Everyone had pretty decisive wins which was great. We have a quick change in focus now and the team is looking forward to Friday's semifinal match."
