Finishing second for Niles were Meg Crites and Nicole Aufie, who are usually singles players, as they were 2-1 against Paw Paw, Buchanan and Kalamazoo Central. Nevaeh Williams and Anna Johnson were second at No. 4 doubles with a 2-1 record, while Zoe Gondeck and Anna Kennedy were third at No. 6 doubles. They also went 2-1 on the day.
