Sarah Nuss (Averill Park/Wynantskill) and Kristen Parker (Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake/Scotia) won their first Region Championship in the third and fourth singles flight. Parker and Ciarra Hogan (Columbia/Wynantskill) also took home the third flight doubles Region Championship.

It was also announced that the Vikings took a clean sweep in the Mountain Valley Collegiate Conference, where all six girls in their respective flights earned All-Conference honors. This is the first time in the history of the program that Hudson Valley took all six of six All-Conference spots.
