Demos maintains a 3.8 grade-point average in business.  She owns a 45-25 combined singles/doubles mark this year, including 22-5 in doubles during the dual campaign in helping Drake set a school record for wins.  Demos finished 5-2 in league doubles matches with Krizman, while also sitting at 4-1 in singles play.

Boasting a 3.25 GPA in psychology, Krizman, who will graduate in only three years, maintains a team-best 55-14 combined singles/doubles mark this year, including 22-2 in singles during the dual campaign.  On the strength of a 25-match singles winning streak, she has helped Drake set a school record for wins.  Krizman went 5-2 in league doubles matches with Demos, while also sitting at 5-2 in singles play.
