Samantha Lee dominated Colliver in No. 3 singles, taking a 6-0, 6-1 decision.

Lorena Mireles edged McClarren, 9-7, to win JHS the point in No. 4 singles.

Shyia Magan had no trouble in securing a  6-3, 6-2 win over Johnson in No. 6 singles.

In girls doubles Day & Savage breezed by Santchi & McClarren 6-3, 6-4 while Lee & Mireles destroyed Raper & Coliver 6-3, 6-1.
