The team also recognized its lone senior, three-time state qualifier Alexis Young.

In the opening round, Ward and Wolfe received a bye into round two. The other Punxsy double entree of Kylie Krise and Jaelene Burkett picked up first round victory. The Krise/Burkett pair claimed a 10-3 pro-set win over the Bradford duo of Nicole Henderson and Ashley Stoltz.
