Kuppig won her second final of the day at the No. 5 singles consolation final, defeating Andreea Stanescu of Georgia State in a thriller, 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (6). Kuppig’s doubles partner Morris also won two matches the day, as the freshman finished off an impressive showing by taking third at No. 6 singles with a 6-2, 7-5 win over Central Arkansas’s Mei Ishimura.

On the doubles side, Schmidt and Tatiana Lopez won their consolation final, winning against Stancescu and Daniela Ramirez of Georgia State, 6-1.
