Nicole Soutar started Saturday with a 7-6(3), 6-1 victory over Halli Roach of Valparaiso. She then defeated Dani Gryckiewicz of St. Francis in the flight five final, 6-1, 6-4.

Sierra Nellessen advanced to the finals of flight six before falling to Abby Roebker of Xavier, 6-3, 6-7, [10-3].

Sydney Power and Klara Skopac each advanced to consolation finals of their respective flights, but they were cancelled due to rain.
