Davidson (5-3) posted wins at all six singles spots as well. Janssen battled to a super tie-break before falling 6-1, 2-6, 10-7 at first singles, while Danko fell 6-2, 6-3 at the second spot. Dierberg dropped a 6-1, 6-1 match while Scala fell 6-0, 6-0. Chada lost 6-2, 6-2 at fifth singles while Evangelist posted a 6-1, 6-1 loss at the bottom of the order.
