In singles action, Bruin freshman Daniela Bercek, playing her first-ever match at the No. 1 position, defeated Lorena Arias, 6-3, 6-4. At the No. 2 position, sophomore Jackie Carleton won in three sets, defeating Orsolya Sallai, 7-6, 1-6, 6-2.

The Cougars picked up their only win of the day at the No. 3 position, where Nora Gaal defeated UCLA's Feriel Esseghir, 6-0, 6-4.

Led by straight set winner Laura Gordon, the bottom half of the Bruin lineup took care of business. Gordon defeated Amy Toth, 6-0, 6-2 at the No. 5 position, while Sarah Gregg at No. 4 and Nina Yaftali at No. 5 both won in three sets.
