Davis' Take: The following are quotes from University of Wyoming headwomen's tennis coach Pam Davis after the BYU Invitational: "We startedthe tournament out on the right foot. We played very well to get thingsgoing. But as we advanced, we faced stiffer competition and had sometough matches. There were lots of talented players here and the levelof play wasn't like anything we've seen this year so far. We are stilllearning about ourselves and discovering what combinations work best forus. But overall it was a solid weekend for us. We had some goodperformances and our younger players are really coming along."
