The Emory duo topped the No. 3 seeded pairing from Whitman before defeating Chicago in the national semifinals. In the championship match, Spaulding and Rubinstein saw their run end, falling to Middlebury's team of Lubomir Cuba and Kyle Schlanger in straight sets. Rubinstein and Spaulding ended the campaign with an overall record of 23-13.
