In one round of doubles against Northwestern State, the Lady Tigers split their two matches that were completed, with the team of Ondeck and senior Alex Tjioe defeating the team of Bogusia Patzer and Catalinaa Villegas, 8-4, while the team of Flavia Russo and Amanda Brown fell 8-0 to the duo of Marcia Alcantara and Daniela Posada.
