At the three day event as a team the Lady Vikings swept all of their matches sans a baker match which they dropped to Bowie State University. Overall ECSU posted a 14-1 record against the East Division which includes Bowie State, Saint Paul's, Virginia Union and Virginia State. Lincoln University was also a participant in the weekend's events as a warm up for when they join the CIAA as full-fledged member for the 2009-2010 season. Individually Shanice Watkins led the Lady Vikings with a weekend total pin count (and Meet high) of 1,921, an average of 192.1 over 10 games.
