The women's team championship was won by Stanford, their third, and second consecutive, team national title. The Cardinal defeated Georgia in the final round, 5–1.

Stanford's Patty Fendick repeated as the women's singles national champion, the first to accomplish this feat. It would not happen again until Lisa Raymond won back-to-back titles in 1992 and 1993.

The women's doubles title was won by Katrina Adams and Diane Donnelly from Northwestern.

Format changesEdit

  • The women's team tournament eliminated its third-place match, just as the men's team tournament did in 1986.

Host siteEdit

The tournaments were hosted by the University of California, Los Angeles at the Los Angeles Tennis Center in Los Angeles, California. The men's and women's tournaments would not be held at the same site until 2006.
