Megan Hickey and Ashley Hammons defeated Lisa Johnston and Alex Oswalt, 8-5, on the second court, and Courtney Brown and Madeline Hart rounded out the doubles sweep with an 8-1 victory over Sonal Bahl and Maya Srkalovic.

In singles play, Hawley ignited the Big Red with a 6-3, 6-1 No. 1 singles win over Franco, while Alsup won both of her sets 6-2, 6-2 as she defeated Hanselman in the No. 2 matchup.

Denison continued to roll on the third and fourth courts as Hickey only dropped two games in her 6-0, 6-2 win over Johnston, and Hart went 6-1, 6-3 in her defeat of Oswalt.
