The Pride swept the doubles sets, starting at number one doubles with Carly Donovan (Harwich, Mass.) and Ariana McCormack (Worcester, Mass.) cruising to an 8-0 victory. The other two Regis doubles teams posted the same 8-3 score, as Ginger Boodakian (Burlington, Mass.) and Katelyn Mogelnicki (Wethersfield, Conn.) won at number two doubles and Kaitlyn Colby (Merrimac, Mass.) and Lauren Mogelnicki (Wethersfield, Conn.) prevailed at number three doubles.
The veterans handled Regis' business in the singles competition, starting with a straight-set victory for Donovan at number one singles, as she did not drop a game all day (6-0, 6-0). McCormack ended the match by completing her straight-set win (6-1, 6-0) at number two singles.
