Paige Boiko continued her hot play by winning for the 10th time in her last 12 matches with a 7-5, 6-4 win over Luciana Araujo at #1.
Old Dominion prevented the shutout as Katarina Kramaric and Raquel Araujo defeated Boiko and Kendall White at #2 doubles 8-5.
The Cavaliers return to action Friday night (Feb. 13) against Illinois at the Boar's Head Sports Club. The match is scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM.
