Kobayashi and Tuionetoa off to play in Florida

LAIE, Hawaii (Oct. 9, 2013) - The BYU-Hawaii women's tennis doubles team of Marika Kobayashi and Marietta Tuionetoa will be playing in the USTA/ITA National NCAA Division II Small College Championship at the Three Oaks Tennis Center in Fort Myers, Florida this week.

Kobayashi and Tuionetoa won the ITA West Regional tournament on Saturday, Sept. 28 to earn a spot at the championships.

The USTA/ITA Small College National Championship is the only tournament that combines all levels of Junior/Community College (NJCAA Divisions I and III and the California division). The singles and doubles champions at each divisional level will then compete to become the overall "Super Bowl" champions.

The champions earn wild cards into the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships with the opportunity to win the event held at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. 

The tournament will begin Oct. 10 and go through to the weekend. Kobayashi and Tuionetoa are scheduled to play at 2:15 p.m. ET on Thursday, Oct. 10.
