No. 2 doubles was close as well, as the Quakers lost 8-6.

In singles, both Penn victories came in straight sets. Sophomore Phil Law shut out his opponent in the first set, 6-0 and won the second, 6-4. Magnes also took care of business, winning 6-4, 6-1. Three of the Quakers' four losses were in three sets, as Brazdil, Jason Lin and Justen Roth all won a set before bowing out in the third.,
