In singles, two Cavaliers won a pair of matches to reach the final round of pre-qualifying. Elbaba cruised to a pair of straight-set wins, downing Patricia Skowronski of Oregon 6-1, 6-0 in the first round and No. 13 seed CC Sardinha of Oklahoma State 6-0, 6-2 in the second round.

Caryssa Peretz (Cherry Hill, N.J.) defeated No. 10 seed Annie Mulholland of Duke in the first round before downing Tulane's Emma Levy in three sets in the second round.
