Hammel in singles and Tor Bright at second doubles and Hammel in singles won by default. Staret at No. 3 singles and Silver and Eric Podraza at No. 1 doubles fell in tiebreakers after splitting two sets.
The Tiger girls swept two matches from visiting North Country on Wednesday, 6-1, 6-1, but lost at Harwood on Friday, 4-3, when several players had academic conflicts and the team was shorthanded.
On Wednesday, the teams elected to play four-game individual matches to allow full team matches to be completed, thus accounting for an earlier rainout. The individual results in the first match were:

• At No. 2 doubles, C. Wulfman/Ingersoll, M, defeated Shuman/A. Fournier, NC, 4-0, 4-0.
At Harwood, the Tigers forfeited the Nos. 4 and 5 singles slots. They prevailed in three of the five contested matches in coming up just short. Winning were Avery at No. 1 singles, the No. 1 doubles team of Isham and Benatti, and the No. 2 doubles team of Cromis and Ingersoll, all by prevailing in tiebreakers.
