For the second consecutive postseason, the BYU Hawaii Seasiders ended the Cal State Stanislaus women's tennis team's season in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Laie, Hawaii.
The third-ranked BYU Hawaii (29-0) fended off the Warriors, 5-0, after Cal State Stanislaus (8-6) challenged the Seasiders during doubles play.
"It was really a lot closer than the 5-0 score," CSUS head coach Verek Visaraga said. "We played them really tough in doubles, especially at No. 1."
Against the No. 1 ranked doubles tennis team in NCAA Division II, Verena Preikschas and Katie Eng took BYUH's duo Yuan Jia and Elwen Li all the way to 8-6. Last year, Jia-Li won 8-0.
The Warriors' No. 2 team of Vanesa Reibstein and Brianna McClintock dropped their close match, 8-4, against Ayako Ikeda and Shawni Porter.
At No. 3, BYUH's Jenny Chin and Salina Aranda also won by the same score, 8-4, over Stanislaus' Arina Polovnikova and Lexy Harrington.
The Seasiders, champions of the Pacific West Conference, got two singles points they needed for five team points to advance at No. 5 and No. 6.
Chin got by Heather Cotter, 6-1, 6-0 and Aranda beat Erin McGurty, 6-0, 6-1.
