UNLV won the first point of the day as they took two of the three matches needed in doubles play. Alisa Razina and Anna Maskaljun defeated the Cowgirls team of Rebecca Berger and Jamie Nelson, 8-2, while the team of Nikol Dimitrova and Rumyana Terzierva took their match by default. The UW number one team of Sarah Summerfield and Carly Van Hollen were up 6-4, but did not finish their match.

Katie Williams would earn a two set win, 6-4, 6-3, over sophomore Carly Van Hollen. At the number five spot, Carolina Chaix was defeated by the Lady Rebels' Anna Maskaljun, 6-0, 6-0, while Ruymyana Terzierva gained the third point for UNLV with a victory by default.
