Sophomore Catherine Park was the lone member of that stipulation as she tied in her first match, before getting one of the two wins vs. No. 8 Texas. USC started the morning on a roll as it took down the host school in the newly readjusted match-play style tournament. Three players earned wins including junior Amari Avery, who posted the largest victory of the evening with a 4&2 victory from the No. 4 spot against Ohio State.
