“The team struggled a bit today with our match ups,” Messick said. “We had some tough first round matches. I was pleased with the play of our players still in the main draw.”

Junior Kaley Schultz also lost in the second round, 6-3, 7-6, and had her opportunity to play for seventh place also wiped out by the weather.

Freshman Mollie Cooper took fifth in the No. 6 flight, winning 6-1, 6-2 on her final match of the day, while freshman Maddie Buxton took fifth in the No. 7 flight, winning 7-6, 7-6 in her final match.
