Vidal and Whiteford won their third straight match in improving to 7-2 on the year. Sophomore Anton Andersson and freshman Ben Guthrie clinched the pairs point with an 8-6 triumph over Johannes Pulsfort and Chris Sheehan at the No. 2 slot. The Tribe twosome bumped their season ledger to 5-3.

Andersson quickly increased the W&M advantage to 2-0 with a straight sets win at the top singles spot. He defeated Machado, 6-1, 6-2, for his 11th singles win of the season as he improved to 5-3 at the No. 1 singles position.

Freshman Ben Hoogland and sophomore Adrian Vodislav clinched the W&M victory with straight sets triumphs at the No. 5 and No. 6 positions, respectively. Hoogland won for the 12th time this year, downing Harry Menzies, 6-3, 6-2, before Vodislav notched a 6-4, 6-0 victory in the clincher over Sheehan. It marked the 12th win of the season for Vodislav as he improved to 5-3 in dual-match competition.
