Women’s tennis travels to Hawaii

210

The BYU women’s tennis team will look to overcome its two road losses in Oregon last week as it heads to Hawaii for matches against BYU-Hawaii on Thursday and the University of Hawaii on Saturday.

The Cougars are 5–4 overall but just 1–4 in their last five matches. Their last win was a 5–2 victory against Iowa State on Feb. 23 in Las Vegas.

BYU-Hawaii comes into the match ranked No. 2 in Division II tennis and is led by No. 1 Annie Hwang and the Division II No. 2 doubles pair in Hwang and Sherry Liu. The Seasiders only defeat this season came against Hawaii Pacific, ranked No. 2 in Division II.

Hawaii is coming on a 6–1 defeat to San Diego State last week. The Cougars are 5–0 all time against the Warriors.

The Cougars will look to continue their solid doubles play. All three doubles partnerships have been solid on the season, including the duo of sophomore Meghan Sheehan-Dizon and freshman Nicolette Tran. However, BYU coach Lauren Jones-Spencer made a switch last weekend in partners and it will be interesting to see if she does it again.

BYU returns home on March 20 for its first WCC match of the season against Portland. The Cougars have only lost one home match this season.
