The Rainbow Wahine were able to extend their lead to 2-0 as Kostalova dominated en route to a 6-1, 6-0 victory against Slevcove at the No. 3 spot. CSUF got on the board with a singles win at No. 1 as Tiffany Mai breezed to a 6-2, 6-2 win against Xenia Suworowa.

Faltusz was able to give Hawaii a 3-1 lead in the match as she defeated Rebekah Ermac 6-2, 6-3. The match ended at the No. 5 spot when Daguio won a three-set game against Megan Sandford 6-2, 0-6, 6-4.
