TSU dropped four games in two sets by the score of 6-0, 6-0. The Tigers number one player Meagan Haynes dropped her match-up to Alex Stinikova while Penelope Johnson hung tough but fell to the Colonels' Myriem Mhirit (23-4), 6-1, 6-1.

Tierra Sharpe, Lia Stewart and Melissa Martin could not garner any wins to help pull the Tigers out of the slump surrendering the third, fourth and fifth games. In the final singles play, Dania Lofton dropped an 8-1 decision to Alyze Pagal.
