Nile Lockwood, who formerly played doubles, picked up a 6-2, 6-2 win in third singles.

Joey Lippo and William Nelson came from behind to capture first doubles 3-6, 6-0, 6-4; and Drake Borden and Zach Ginnings won in fourth doubles 8-3.

Pedro Gamarra (6-0, 6-0) and Jakobi Baumann (6-4, 6-3) dropped the first two singles matches.

Tiger Johnson and Jaschon Baumann fell in third doubles 6-3, 6-1.
