Millsaps College's Isabella Hutchins, the eventual flight runner up, eliminated Rogers in the quarterfinals, 6-0, 6-3. Rogers teamed with Hannah Perdue in the Flight C doubles bracket and the tandem knocked off Covenant College's Justine Blick and Ariana Logan, 8-7 (1), in their first contest. Eventual flight runner up Julia Keffer and Erica Rempel of Belhaven University bounced Rogers and Pardue, 8-6, in the semifinals.
In the B2 singles flight, Guilford's Madyson Schreiber downed Covenant's Nicole Restrepo, 3-6, 6-4 (6), but fell to flight runner up Gracie Hughes (Sewanee), 6-2, 6-1, in the quarterfinal round.
