Mary Stocklen added the other win at fifth singles (6-4, 6-1).
Serene Itani (third singles) lost 1-6, 3-6, Audrey Stocklen (fourth singles) fell 1-6, 1-6 and Summar Hasan (sixth singles) lost 1-6, 0-6. At second doubles, Mary Stocklen and Itani went down 0-8 against a strong duo while Audrey Stocklen and Hasan battled in their 3-8 loss.
"It was overall a good match despite losing. It was insanely windy so it was a great learning experience for the players. They had to really adjust their game in order to be more accurate in the conditions. It also was a good match to prepare us for our tournament next week," said head Coach Breanna Vollan.
