Hawaii Pacific 1
HONOLULU, Hawaii -- The NAIA’s No. 1-ranked Azusa Pacific continued its late-season momentum with a big 8-1 win at NCAA Division II Hawaii Pacific.
With their seventh straight win, the Cougars improve to 19-3. It is also their first win over Hawaii Pacific in 10 years.

It was all Cougars in singles’ play. The Sea Warriors picked up their lone point when Gabor Boczonadi defeated Adam Davidson after Davidson retired with the match at 2-0 in the second set. Gordon Hong (No. 4), Tom Jelsma (No. 5) and Alex Muresan (No. 6) all picked up identical 6-0, 6-0 wins.
