With the victory, W&L now holds a 12-2 overall record and a flawless 9-0 mark in conference play.
The Generals started the match with a 3-0 advantage after doubles action, ending the day with five wins at the No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 singles positions. No. 5 and 6 singles did not compete, as the teams only played to seven points.
