In doubles play, the Big Red got multiple victories from two different pairs.

Tyler Gargas led the way for the Big Red in singles, winning four matches to go 4-2 on the weekend. The freshman won four consecutive matches in his flight before finally falling in the championship semifinals 6-7, 10-8, 2-6 to Bernardo Neves of Washington University.

Jamie McDonald picked up three consecutive singles victories without dropping a set, defeating Landon Walker (Monmouth College), Alex Cadigan (Kalamazoo College), and Jacob Zalenski (Kenyon College). McDonald finally fell 6-4, 6-3 to Charlie Pei (University of Chicago) to end his winning streak.

Brown topped Nick Zazove (Lake Forest College) 7-5, 6-4 and then defeated Radha Vishnubhotla (Washington University) 4-6, 6-3 for his second win of the weekend. Rotnov beat Vivi Vemula (Case Western Reserve Univ.) 6-4, 6-1 and Bulnes Aramburu (Earlham) 6-1, 6-0. Patrick McGuigan also picked up a win for the Big Red, defeating Wyatt Dale (Principia) 7-5, 6-0 to total 14 singles victories for Denison.

In doubles competition, the tandem of McDonald and Thai picked up two wins, as did the pair of Brown and Rotnov.
