Fellow junior Maggie Wolenter (Audubon, N.J./Audubon) also played an evenly fought match at no. 3 singles, before falling 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 to the Comets' Celeste Gruber.

The Eagles dropped all three doubles matches, with the closest match coming at no. 1 doubles where the pairing of Katie Healy (Pittsburgh, Pa./Mt. Lebanon) and Lauren Perow (Huntingdon, Pa./Huntingdon) dropped an 8-5 decision to Mummaw and Giana Guerra.
