The Vikings swept the doubles matches as the No. 1 team of David Jumes and Brian DeCorte, the No. 2 squad of Bill Schuman-Kline and David Brooker and the No. 3 team of Adam Busch and Izaya Turenne were all victorious. The Vikings then clinched the victory as Ethan Perushek won at No. 6 singles, and Busch rallied for a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory at No. 5.
