Gerber won by walkover in her singles match, but Wilkins suffered a 7-6 (6), 6-2 singles loss and the pair fell, 8-5, in doubles play. Trinity senior co-captain Hillary Hoyt (New York, N.Y.) and first-year Meilta Ferjanic (Samobor, Croatia) went 2-1 in the "A" flight to finish as quarterfinalists on Friday and Saturday.
