The Aggies (2-15 overall) made their first stop in Virginia to face George Mason where they fell 7-0. The Patriots swept the three doubles matches to take the initial point. Ashley Delaney defeated Jayla Scott after Scott had to retire down 2-3 in the second set after Delaney had won the opening set 6-4.
