This is our floor today,” said coach Jeremy Case. “It’s our floor, not our ceiling. We’re going to do some amazing things in three weeks. It’ll be good. Two, three weeks — tomorrow maybe. This is definitely our floor. We want to make sure every day from here on out we’re above. We have to be.”

The lone win for Grand Haven came from the Buccaneers No. 1 doubles pairing of Maggie Ginocchio and Adi Smith. The duo beat Rockford’s Courtney Fedeson and Jillian Day in two sets (6-2, 6-2). 

“They did a lot of great things,” Case said. “They attacked the ball a ton, took advantage of every opportunity that was in front of them. You’re not going to win all of them, but you’re going to win a majority if you’re in the right position at the right time.

“We just need to do more of that, as a team we need to do more of that. We need to be more ferocious. We need to have a fearless mentality. It will happen.”

The loss moves the Bucs to 0-2 on the season. Grand Haven will look to gain its first win of the season today, as it hosts Mona Shores.
