Sophomore Colin Arnold (Sterling HS, Sterling, Ill.) and junior Jack Cullen (Edgewood HS, Madison, Wis.) completed the doubles sweep with an 8-1 win over Colby Chapman and Kyle Stapleton at number three.

DeSimone beat Yerbey 7-5; 6-3 at number one while Wall won a 6-2; 7-5 decision over Surls at number two. Cullen beat Ortman 6-0; 7-6 at number three and Arnold took care of Pullen 6-3; 6-1 at number four. Sophomore Kevin Bayles (Homewood-Flossmoor HS, Flossmoor, Ill.) defeated Chapman 7-5; 6-3 at number five and sophomore Grant Wick (Windsor HS, Fort Collins, Colo.) beat Stapleton 6-2; 6-2.
