At third singles, Mollie Rupp also had a perfect day with 6-3, 6-2 and 6-1, 6-1 wins.

The Nos. 2 and 3 duos each had to play three sets during the day’s competition, but the pairings of Abby Johnson and Paige Anderson, as well as Darby Neis and Madi Jensen, all posted 2-0 showings in the triangular.
