No. 2 Doubles — Lauren Harp and Jacqueline Nguyen went 0-4 on the day after Nguyen turned an ankle and had to withdraw from one match.  They lost to Ashland’s Woodruff/Golden 0-6, lost to Scott City’s Kucharik/Vasko 1-6, lost to Meade’s Piteo/Flowers 2-6 before scratching from a match with Perryton due to injury.
