In the Ramsay Division, Corey Schafer lost to Penn's Nabilla Ariffin, 3-0 (11-4, 11-5, 11-7). Schafer then played Katie Ballaine in the first round of the consolation bracket and lost 3-2, in what proved to be her final college squash match. Schafer took the first and third games, but Ballaine rallied to win the last two games and the match (12-10, 7-11, 11-5, 11-13, 4-11).
