The Quakers' doubles tandem of sophomore Natalie Sutton and freshman Allison Hewitt advanced to the second round of the B Doubles Draw with an 8-3 victory over Berry College's Ali Jackson and Amber Monroe. Huntingdon's Christian Vick and Hannah Creamer eliminated the Guilford pair in the second round, 8-2.
