Susanne Andersson, ranked No. 103 collegiately, won her match to end a personal two-match losing streak and teamed with Julie Stone to win their doubles match in three sets, 1-6, 6-3, 6-3.

Kelbert, ranked No. 92 collegiately, Stone and Garcia won for the Lady Cougars as well. The Lady Frogs, now 13-7 (1-3 in the SWC) earned points in singles from Natalie Balafoutis and Rachael Niwa.
