It was the sixth title for the Highlanders and the first since 2012, which was the last year of five-year string of championships. They defeated defending champion Neenah 4-3 in the title match. Homestead (27-0) notched victories by Katya Mikhailenko, Andie Weise and Jamie Gehardt at the #1, #2 and #4 singles postions, respectively.

The Highlanders' doubles win came at the #2 flight with the tandem of Alyssa Boyer and Bridget Brown.

The Rockets lone singles victory was posted by Hannah Dorsey at #3. Kiki Risgaard and partner Christina Price won at the #1 doubles position after winning the State doubles title last weekend, and Mairin Kearny and Ava Asbury won their match at #3 doubles.

It is the fifth time Neenah (15-4) has finished runner-up for the team title. The four previous second-place finsihes came in 1983, 1986, 2000 and 2014.
