In second singles Samantha Starkey had to retire against Rachel White at 6 – 7(4), 1 – 1. “Samantha has been hampered with a sore shoulder for the last several matches and today the pain became to intense for her to continue. ”

At 2nd doubles Meng Wang and Taryn Mullins defeated Mary Flowers and Lexi Windmiller 6 – 1, 6 – 4. “We played a great first set taking control of the net. The second set was much closer, but we were able to win the big points when we needed them.”
