Megha Panuganti won the women’s singles title with a finals victory over Adrienne Fox in a round-robin event that included Katrina Brown and Ilysia Parker.

Burghart teamed with Colin Gillam for a men’s doubles title, taking out Tracy and Lekander 6-2, 6-2. 

The women’s doubles title went to Panuganti and Mallory Cox, who defeated Fox and Brown 4-6, 7-5, 10-8 in the final. 

Brad Luczkow and Katrina Brown teamed for a mixed-doubles title, toppling Burghard and Fox in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 10-6.
