The duo did well in doubles taking part in the Division III Invitational draw. They opened with a bye in the Round of 32 before taking on UC Santa Cruz' Kayla Manz and Ines Pelvang in the Round of 16. They pulled off the win 6-3, 6-2 but then had to face the top seeded team of Zoe Kaffen and Mary Kaffen from Trinity in the Quarterfinals. They fought but couldn't pull off the upset falling 6-3, 6-2 to the eventual Champions. They did however pull off the most games against the top-seed in the entire draw.
Both Yeung and Rodriguez fell in the Round of 32. Rodriguez managed just one game against Brennan Foreman (Cal Lutheran) falling 6-0, 6-1 and Yeung dropped a tight 6-4, 6-4 match against Vasilisa Trofimova (Chapman). In the backdraw Rodriguez was once again faced with a tough task of playing Vivian Lee (UC Santa Cruz). She won the opening set 6-3 but couldn't keep the momentum going as she fell 6-0 and then 11-9 in the third set super tie-breaker.
Yeung on the other hand found success in her first match beating Savana McDowell from UC Santa Cruz 6-2, 6-3 before being taken out by Oxy's Katie Wolber 6-3, 7-6 (6) in the Quarterfinals.
Whittier finished the year off 5-12, 1-6 SCIAC. They posted wins over Mills, Hardin-Simmons, Southwest Missouri State, Principia, Willamette, Pacific Lutheran, and Occidental.
