“I think this is probably the deepest the team has been in a long time. I know we won state in ’06, and that was the time we obviously had the deepest team. But since then, especially since as long as I’ve been on this team, it’s been the deepest team we’ve had.” — Sauser, who’s been the Spartans’ No. 1 singles player since he was a freshman
