In singles play, Jay Adams (Detroit, Mich./Andover H.S.) battled to a super tie-break for the Crusaders before falling 4-6, 6-0, 10-7 at fourth singles. Nic Kooyers (Holland, Mich./Holland H.S.) dropped a 6-3, 7-5 contest at the top spot.

Butler (10-6) won second, third, and fifth singles handily in straight sets and took sixth singles by default.
