Freshman Sam Vickers put TU ahead 2-0 with a 6-0, 6-0 sweep of Wischer from No. 6 singles, and Szatkowska gave Tulsa a 3-0 edge after defeating Cacciuttolo 6-0, 6-2 from the fourth position.

Farley won 6-2, 6-4 at No. 3 singles over Lang to clinch the win for the Golden Hurricane, and Erofeeva took down Karonis 6-3, 6-4 at the second spot.
