At #1 doubles the two teams were knotted up at 7-7 before Jhovanna Salmeron and Htet Myat San took the final two games to give Hollins the 3-0 advantage. The home team carried the momentum into singles competition, winning five of the six matches to post the 8-1 victory. San, Johnson, and Snoddy each won their singles matches without giving up a game, 6-0 and 6-0.

Hollins will travel to face Emory & Henry College on Friday night in Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) action. The winner will have a leg up on securing a berth in the ODAC Championship Tournamet later in the season.
