The format featured four different flights of best-of-three matchups, with two singles matches and a doubles match for each pair of players.
Kauppila (Chesterfield, Mo.) and Davis (Dix Hills, N.Y.) competed in the A flight and defeated Colby-Sawyer's Nick Mathieu and Gustav Jigrup in the quarterfinals. Kauppila beat Mathieu 8-5 in singles and Davis won by default over Jigrup. In doubles play, the pair also won, this time in a close 8-7 (7-3) match to advance to the semifinals against Southern New Hampshire's Tiago Fernandes and Miguel Marreiros.
Kauppila and Davis defeated Fernandes and Marreiros in doubles play by a count of 8-7 (7-1). However, the pair both lost their respective singles matches to end their day in the A flight tournament.
In the B flight, senior Andrew Berghuis (Toronto, Ontario) defeated Babson College's Cameron Gruss by a score of 8-4 in the quarterfinals. However, he and first-year Robert Kennedy (New York, N.Y.) really got rolling in the B flight consolation matches. They teamed to defeat Matthew Murphy and Andrew Vroman of Holy Cross in doubles by a score of 8-4. Berghuis knocked off Vroman 8-4 in singles and Kennedy won 8-0 over Murphy.
After losing to the Babson pair of Ben Roque and Dylan Levy in the C flight quarterfinals, first-year Owen Greenwood (Wellesley Hills, Mass.) and junior Dylan Davis (Dix Hills, N.Y.) rebounded nicely in the consolation matches. They beat Will Jeffreys and Peter Godwin of Gordon College by a score of 8-7 (7-5) in doubles. Then Greenwood beat Jeffreys 8-4 in singles and Davis won 8-4 as well over Godwin.
