In the No. 1 singles match Emily Raidt won the first set 6-2 and battled through a tiebreaker to win the second set 7-6 while Karine Celis captured the No. 2 singles match with another tiebreaker victory in the second set for a 6-4, 7-6 victory. Juliana Guevara won the final singles match for the Golden Grizzlies in three sets finishing 6-1, 6-7 and 6-3.
Raidt and Blum won the only doubles match for OU as they won in a tiebreaker for the 9-8 victory. The team of Grace Keating and Sabourin forced a tiebreaker in their match but fell 9-8 while Celis and Guevera battled hard in their match but dropped their match 9-7.
