Seasiders taking both
teams to nationals

The Brigham Young-Hawaii tennis teams will put their No. 1 national rankings on the line on the national stage.

The Seasider men (24-1) beat UC Davis 6-2 and the women dropped Hawaii Pacific 5-1.

Eddie Merc, Peter Madarassy, Hong Tae Kim and Jan Krejci made quick work of the Aggies, each winning in straight sets to clinch the national berth. Merc was the most impressive, taking Richard Galang out 6-0, 6-0. Every Seasider won in straight sets, and only Andrew Makarevich was in trouble. He trailed Paul Dilloway 3-6 in the second set before quitting because his team had clinched the win.

BYUH's women's team remained undefeated at 25-0 with a clean sweep of the singles event after dropping one of the three doubles matches. Summer Terry and Shakti Stream put a small dent in the Seasiders' invincibility by beating Tomoko Sukegawa and Leslie Miles 8-6. It was Sukegawa's first loss in doubles this season. BYUH's other two doubles teams got the points back though.

Amy Sun started the singles off with a 6-0, 6-1 blistering of Terry before Tagifano Taosoga beat Doriniso Holdarova 6-1, 6-1 and Adrienn Hegedus dispatched Stephanie Kovacic 6-1, 6-1.

Both teams now head to Kansas City for the national championships May 9-12.
