The Cavaliers won the #4 and #5 singles matches as third year Leslie Cook (Boynton Beach, Fla./Lake Worth Christian) took a three-set 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 decision at #4. At #5 singles, first year Jennifer Tuchband (Raleigh, N.C./Broughton) defeated Pryia Bhupathi 6-4, 6-4. At #6, third year Kelly Weaver (Kingston, N.Y./Kingston) won the first set over Kristi Watson 6-2, but lost the next two 7-6 (8) , 6-2 as Princeton took a 4-2 lead into doubles play.
Virginia rebounded to tie the match as 4-4 with doubles wins at #2 and #3. O'Donnell and second year Christine Kim (McLean, Va./Bishop Ireton) teamed to defeat Krishnamurthy and Vasisht 8-4 at #2 doubles. At #3, Weaver and Tuchband scored an 8-5 victory over Bhupathi and Watson to even the match at 4-4.
