Seasiders show depth in victory over Golden Tigers

TUSKEGEE, Ala. – No. 1 BYU-Hawaii women's tennis continued its road trip with a 9-0 triumph over Tuskegee on Wednesday afternoon at the PepsiCo Tennis Courts.

"Today was a wonderful, educational match," BYU-Hawaii head coach Dave Porter said. "Tuskegee is having one of their best seasons on a campus that has a great history of the Tuskegee Airmen from World War II. It was a great opportunity to teach our players about American history."

Nannan (Dallas) Zhang and Xin (Summer) Wen remained undefeated in No. 1 doubles for the Seasiders (15-0) this season, defeating Reicia North and Monica Thomas 8-2. Jade Griffin and Kanela Adamson defeated Golden Tigers (13-4) Kimberly Bowen and Navilla Paul 8-1, while Jeong-Min Jeon and Chiung-En (JoJo) Wu shut out Kayla Triche and Taylor Wilson on the last doubles court.

North and No. 7 Min (Karen) Liu played an extremely close first set in No. 1 singles, but Liu was able to pull ahead for a 6-4, 6-0 win. Shu-Ying (Suzie) Hsieh put the Seasiders up another point with her 6-1, 6-2 victory against Thomas. A 6-4, 6-0 win came from Jeon over Paul on court three, while Griffin defeated Bowen 6-0, 6-2. Adamson and Wu each finished with double-bagel wins against their Tuskegee opponents.

BYU-Hawaii will return to the court on Thursday at West Florida at 10 a.m. EDT.
