Sophomores Dan Levitan (Winter Park, Fla.) and Dylan Pace (Atherton, Calif.) earned the third point of the day with an 8-0 triumph at number three.

The Beavers rolled through singles dropping no more than two games in any of the six matches. Libnic was a 6-0, 6-2 winner at number one, Rosenbluth recorded a 6-1, 6-1 victory at number two and Kolesnik recorded a 6-0, 6-1 decision at number three.
