Freshmen Jane Park and Tiffany Joh, and senior Susie Mathews each won their matches to clinch the victory for the Bruins. Sophomore Brianna Loyear earned a half point by halving her match.

Park won 2 & 1 against Carling Cho. Cho rallied from two holes down to square the score at the 15th, but Park won the 16th and 17th holes to clinch the match.

Joh won 6 & 5 against Selanee Henderson. The match was all-square through the sixth hole until Joh won six of the final seven holes.
