No. 2 singles player Madelina Figarino was the only other Pirate to win a game.

Weyker beat Michelle Wu, 6-3, 6-1.

Port’s No. 1 doubles team of Gaby Ortiz and Grace Neitzke beat Claire Nelson and Alise Mooney of Plymouth, 6-3, 6-3; and Callie Alfonsi and Julia English of Sheboygan North, 6-4, 6-2. They lost to Saide Sieber and Haley Tarcin of Menomonee Falls, 6-4, 6-0.
