In singles play, Kissell, playing from the No. 1 position, dropped a hard-fought, three set match to No. 71 Wagner, 7-5, 1-6, 0-1 (6-10), while James-Baker fell at the hands of the No. 40-ranked Laurente, 6-4, 6-2 at No. 2 singles.

Martinez was tripped up by Clementina Riobueno, 6-0, 6-2 on court three, while Fieldsend lost to Lilekite, 7-5, 6-1 on court four. Natalia Janowicz, playing No. 5 singles, dropped her match to Bolivar, 6-3, 6-2 while Hande came up short from the No. 6 slot, falling to Albuquerque, 6-2, 6-1.

The Wolfpack will continue its five-match home stand next on March 22 against No. 30 Florida State.
