MIT (15-4) and Brandeis (10-9) split the first two matches in doubles play. The Engineers took the first point of the match with an 8-2 win at No. 3 before the Brandeis duo of Allyson Bernstein/Marissa Lazar took a close 8-6 decision in the No. 2 match. MIT then came back to take a 2-1 lead into singles play when its No. 1 team of freshman Elysa Kohrs and sophomore Victoria Tam took an 8-5 victory.

Senior Julia Hsu took the first singles match for MIT, coming up with a 6-3, 6-0 win against Simone Vandroff at No. 5. At No. 6 junior Vynnie Kong made it a 4-1 match with a 6-1, 6-0 decision against Maya Vasser before her sister, freshman Wendi Kong, clinched the win for the Engineers at No. 2 with a 6-2, 6-2 win against Bernstein.

The only match that went to three sets was at No. 4 where Lai and Emily Eska battled back-and-forth in a match that Lai eventually took 6-3, 4-6, 10-8. Kohrs at No. 1 and Tam at No. 3 both won their matches in consecutive sets to complete the singles sweep for the Engineers.
