In singles play, Soderlund was in both sets at No. 4, dropping the first, 7-6 in a tie-breaker, and the second, 6-4. Lutz took five games at No. 4, falling 6-3, 6-2, and Savage was good for four games at No. 1, as was Walker at No. 6, with each taking a 6-3, 6-1 loss.
Youlios at No. 2, and Lohn at No. 3, each fell 6-2, 6-0 to close out the scoring.
The Sea Gulls head home and will be off for a week before kicking off Capital Athletic Conference play, taking on Southern Virginia University on Friday, March 27 in a neutral-site affair being played at the University of Mary Washington.
