At second singles, Christina Zajkowski posted a 4-6, 6-4, 10-5 victory. Second doubles also went three sets, with Wesley Streicher and Tiffany Yu prevailing 4-6, 6-3, 10-2.

At first singles, Madison Stevens won 6-0, 6-4. At third singles, Jacquie Jakimowicz triumphed 6-4, 6-0. At first doubles, Avery Hatfield and Jennifer Guo prevailed 6-0, 6-0.
