And at No. 3, it was the team of senior My-Linh Nguyen (Potomac, Md.) and freshman Margaux Holloschutz (Franklin Lakes, N.J.) controlling Woodbury and senior Amy Buttarazzi (Scarborough, Me.), 8-2.
The remaining four singles matches were won by Mount Holyoke, led by Han at No. 1. Han won in a third set super tiebreaker over Carney, 0-6, 6-3, (10-6).
