Delaney Degen was defeated at No. 2 singles by Watertown's Ellie Zink in 7-6 (7-5) and 6-1. Josie Heyn topped Mitchell's Elly Clement at No. 4 singles match by a 6-2, 7-5 score.
In the No. 1 doubles match, Watertown's Ellie Zink and Josie Heyn rallied past Amber Moller and Delaney Degen in a 6-7 (4-7), 6-2, 10-3 match. Jaida Young and Leyla Meester won the No. 2 doubles match by a 7-5, 6-1 score over Carsyn Weich and Megan Mastel.
