In the morning match, the Broncos got off to a fast start, sweeping all three of the doubles matches. Morgan Basil and Sandy Vo were the first to finish, defeating Michelle Warwick and Nittaya Phonharath 8-5. Sonia Klamczynska and Kaitlyn Brown sealed the one-point advantage with their 8-3 win of their own. In the No. 1 match, Marlena and Manuela Pietzuch jumped out to a 3-0 and never looked back on their way to an 8-4 win.
In singles action, Boise State's Vo took control of her opponent and wrapped up a 6-1, 6-1 win, carrying the momentum and giving the Broncos a 2-0 lead.
No. 2 Marlena Pietzuch was the next to finish and defeated Ashley Tanner 6-0, 6-4. Marlena is undefeated singles action this season with a 4-0 record and one win against a top 100 opponent.

In the afternoon match against Seattle, Boise State repeated its doubles performance, winning all three matches.
Klamczynska battled through her doubles match but was forced to sit out the No. 1 singles match due to injury, evening the score at one apiece.
