Junior Alexa Flynn (Memphis, Tenn.) and sophomore Claire Mulyadi (Semarang, Indonesia) fought off a late charge from Zoe Bizinos an Olivia Nguyen at No. 2. The UTC pair took the tiebreaker 7-4 to win 8-7.

Jones, Mulyadi and Nurik all improved to 8-0 in spring singles play with straight-set wins today. Jones leads the team with a 19-2 overall record while Nurik improves to 13-6 and Mulyadi to 13-4.
