On the No. 2 court, Kevin Brown and Blake Burstein teamed up to defeat Brandon Rosenbluth and Ron Brody, 8-4, before Vlad Rotnov and Brian Weisberg tallied an 8-6 victory over Tyler Zhang and Dylan Pace in No. 3 play.

In singles action, Rotnov earned a top-flight victory over Libnic by a final of 6-2, 7-5. Cianciola also picked up a straight-set victory, 6-0, 6-1, in No. 3 singles against Brody.

In No. 4 action, Brown secured victories in the first and third sets to defeat Kolesnik, while Patrick McGuigan handed a 7-6 (3), 6-4 loss to Zhang on the No. 5 court and Jacob Dennen defeated Rafael Premisleaner in No. 6 play, 6-0, 4-6, 10-2.
