Senior Matt Cowley holds a 12-4 doubles record and has played with Jamey Swiggart (7-2), Parker McGuiness (1-0), and currently Dan Little (4-2).
The Washington Huskies are currently ranked No. 29 in the nation. Notable wins for the Huskies have come against No. 21 Texas (W, 4-3) and No. 9 USC (W, 4-3). Mitch Stewart is their top singles player, ranking at No. 84 nationally.
