Lyn Yee Choo (Kuching, Malaysia) and Ana Gerbasi (Caracas, Venezuela) improved to 7-3 on the year in doubles play, winning 8-5 at the No. 1 spot.
Both Choo and Gerbasi each earned singles victories, winning at No. 1 and No. 3 singles, respectively. Gerbasi held off a comeback attempt by Taylor Cohen, outlasting Cohen, 6-4, 2-6, 10-8.
Espana and Andreazza sealed the victory, concluding the day with wins at No. 4 and No. 2 singles, respectively.
With the win, ETSU is now 5-1 at home on the year.
