The Vikings swept all nine doubles sets against North Tahoe, running the table while making five substitutions in the last round. In the No. 1 spot, Temugen Enkhbayar and Matthew Barnett won 6-2 and 6-3 in the opening two rounds; Jackson Kennedy and Ian Smith teamed up for a 6-1 win in the last round.

In the No. 2 doubles spot, the team of Jackson Kuzmik and Daniel Sandborn won its matches 6-4 and 6-0; in the third round, Sandborn teamed with Jeremiah Dahl for a 6-0 victory.

At No. 3, Janez Demsar and Brady McIntyre produced a pair of 6-0 victories; Zack Dill and Kailer Womack delivered a 6-4 win in the last round.
