In singles play, ETSU won six of the seven points, with each win coming in straight sets.

Lyn Yee Choo (Kuching, Malaysia) knocked off Virginie Stein, 6-2, 6-4, at No. 1 singles to extend her singles win streak to five matches.

ETSU, winners of eight of its last nine matches, will conclude regular season play Saturday, April 12 at 2:00 p.m., as it hosts Mercer.
