The remainder of their schedule saw the McNamara twins win their matches over five nationally ranked teams – #7 Florida State, #8 South Carolina, #11 Grand Canyon, #12 Florida International and #18 Florida Atlantic.

The McNamara twins lost just one set for the entire week against Florida State’s Vanessa Freire/Sara Putt, winning in a tough third set battle 15-13 to claim the victory.
