UH tennis team loses to San Jose State
The University of Hawaii women's tennis team lost for the second time on its season-opening road trip, falling to San Jose State 5-2 yesterday at the Los Gatos Swim and Racquet Club.
UH swept the three doubles matches -- getting wins from the teams of Kana Aikwa and Samanta Cappella, Julia Sandborn and Erin Katayama, and Chloe Bihag and Florence Wasko -- to earn a team point. But the Spartans won five of six singles matches to claim the victory.
The Rainbow Wahine continue their swing through Northern California tomorrow against San Francisco and Monday against Pacific.
