The Saints were the top seed in the Tournament with a 10-0 record in conference play, and flexed their muscles from the beginning, taking all three doubles matches by the scores of 8-2, 9-8 (7-5), and 8-1. The team of Michelle Hintz and Leslie Klinski played their number two doubles match into a tiebreaker, but came up just short of earning a point.
In singles, CSS took five of the six matches in straight sets, with Klinski gaining the only point for MLC by winning her number three singles match by default.
With the loss, MLC finished the season 4-11.
