In doubles play, the Big Red got multiple victories from two different pairs.

Tyler Gargas led the way for the Big Red in singles, winning four matches to go 4-2 on the weekend. The freshman won four consecutive matches in his flight before finally falling in the championship semifinals 6-7, 10-8, 2-6 to Bernardo Neves of Washington University.

Jamie McDonald picked up three consecutive singles victories without dropping a set, defeating Landon Walker (Monmouth College), Alex Cadigan (Kalamazoo College), and Jacob Zalenski (Kenyon College). McDonald finally fell 6-4, 6-3 to Charlie Pei (University of Chicago) to end his winning streak.

Thai defeated Matt Harris (Baldwin Wallace) 6-0, 6-1 and later defeated Colton Johnson-Taylor (Allegheny College) 6-1, 6-1. Brown topped Nick Zazove (Lake Forest College) 7-5, 6-4 and then defeated Radha Vishnubhotla (Washington University) 4-6, 6-3 for his second win of the weekend. Rotnov beat Vivi Vemula (Case Western Reserve Univ.) 6-4, 6-1 and Bulnes Aramburu (Earlham) 6-1, 6-0. Patrick McGuigan also picked up a win for the Big Red, defeating Wyatt Dale (Principia) 7-5, 6-0 to total 14 singles victories for Denison.

In doubles competition, the tandem of McDonald and Thai picked up two wins, as did the pair of Brown and Rotnov. McDonald and Thai defeated Siddharth Rajupet and Henry Squire (Case Western Reserve Univ.) 8-5 and later defeated Shouta Fukamachi and Jakraraj Rungaseng (Ohio Wesleyan) 8-5.
