Head Coach Alan Dils on Hegelund:

"He has improved a lot also. I was excited to see him in the Midland Collegiate Invitational play the best tennis that I have ever seen him play. I think he is gaining confidence in himself and in his abilities. As he gains that confidence, he will certainly be playing in our top six as long as he continues that style of play. It's really a matter of him keeping up that confidence and knowing that he has to do that day in and day out. I'm really excited where he is at. He has improved both mentally and physically."
