In the Big Red's 9-0 sweep of the Yellow Jackets, Denison started strong on the doubles courts, led by the top-flight pairing of Courtney Brown and Ashley Hammons. The combo took down Wisconsin-Superior's Megan Dulong and Maya Callaway, 8-2.

Hannah Bradvica and Devin Gramley followed in No. 2 singles with an 8-1 victory over Mariah Linder and Taylor Kane, while Lucy Deal and Morgan Arroyo rounded out the doubles sweep, defeating Alison Tollas and Olivia Roberts, 8-4.

In singles play, Hammons got the nod on the No. 1 court and turned in a 6-0, 6-0 straight-set over Dulong while Gramley handed a 6-0, 6-1 defeat to Tollas in No. 2 play.

The third flight saw Bradvica defeat Callaway 6-1, 6-2 before Natalie Overby tallied a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Emily Wald in No. 4 singles. Wins by Susan Biederstedt and Deal rounded out Denison's sweep of the Yellow Jackets.

Against Hillsborough, Denison dropped No. 1 doubles to begin the match when Lauren Hawley and Emma Alsup fell to Hana Kvapilova and Shaylee Syme 8-1. Alex Cash and Hannah Cianciola forced a tiebreaker in No. 2 doubles before falling to Valentina Dancenco and Lolita Kozina, 9-8 (7).

In singles play, Alsup rebounded from a 6-0 first-set loss to Dancenco in No. 2 singles with a 6-4 victory in the second set. Dancenco solidified the victory in the third set with a 7-5 win.

In No. 4 singles, Cianciola won the first set over Syme 6-0 but then lost in the final two sets, 6-1, 6-1.
