After dropping the doubles point to Santa Clara on Friday, Agrawal started the 'Dogs singles surge with a win in straight sets at No. 3. The Bulldogs then went on to win four singles matches, including the deciding point on court six to win the match 4-3.

The Indore, India native then helped clinch the doubles point over Boise State on Sunday with an 8-6 win at the top spot. In singles, Agrawal came from behind to defeat the Broncos, Teal Vosburgh (4-6, 6-0, 6-2). Her singles point over Boise State clinched the match 4-0, for Fresno State.
