Q U O T E S
Michigan Head Coach Bruce Berque
On opening the dual-match season against a tough Western Michigan team ... "This was probably the perfect test. I probably would have preferred during the match or before the match to get an easy win, but now looking back now that we got the win, it's probably exactly what we needed. Overall, we'll take it."
U-M Freshman Kevin Wong
On how it felt to clinch the first dual match of his collegiate career ... "I was nervous at the start of the match and you could tell in the first set, but then I settled down in the second and third sets ... I had never been in a dual match before, but it was a great feeling. It's great to help get a win for Michigan."
