The lone Lady Vikings victory came at No. 6 singles, where Ollianne Raney defeated Polk's Kim Russell by a 10-4 score. Lindsay Wiseman battled at No. 1 singles against Polk's Alivia Livesay, but dropped her match by a 10-5 score.

Wiseman and Keturah Taylor partnered in No. 1 doubles against Livesay and Jamie Greene from Polk. In the closest of the three doubles matches, the Polk pair escaped with an 8-4 win.

Two days later, Avery hosted Hendersonville at Avery Tennis Complex and came up short by a match score of 9-0.
