Wahine tennis swept, tied yesterday
Oklahoma swept Hawaii 6-0 yesterday in women's tennis at the UH Tennis Complex.
The Sooners won five singles matches in straight sets, and clinched the win without playing a doubles match.
Also, after a rain delay that went on for days, Hawaii and Portland called their women's tennis dual a draw yesterday with a 3-3 tie.
The final singles match was rained out Monday. Thanks to weather, the two teams hadn't been able to play by the time the Pilots had to fly home yesterday.
Portland had won all three doubles matches and singles at Nos. 4 and 6. But the Rainbow Wahine were winners at Nos. 1-3 in singles. Kana Aikawa, Chloe Bihag and Samanta Cappella won matches for Hawaii.
