Darn it, the wahine were close in four of the games and could have easily won all four. Hopefully they will finally beat Pepp when it matters most next month.
Pepperdine just looks so strong. But maybe this is extra motivation for if/when Hawaii meets them again in the championship … 😉
So close with Pepperdine … I agree FormerlyWarriorfan, Sandbows need to be ready to pull through in May!! Looks like the 4 and 5 pairs are still being mixed-up. Would be nice to see some consistency there. Great day overall ladies! GO BOWS!!!
I think for some reason UH matches up better against USC, so i’d prefer Pepperdine to be the top seed next month at the championships and that way UH would face them in the finals. IF UH is the 3rd seed of course.
don’t know if UH gets in as the third team. much will depend on what happens at the Big West Challenge. UH needs to beat Long Beach State.
3. Wong does like to let everyone play. as long as 4 and 5 can win he doesn’t mind.
The only pairs that would qualify as at-large at the nationals (that is if UH doesn’t make it as a team) would be UH’s Nos. 1 and 2.
Curious why Croson did not play for Arizona….I thought she was paired with Kingdon earlier in the season….
The pairs tournament is going on now …
Mendoza/Tucker lost 0-2 to Drolson/Inoue (UCLA)
Chow/Higgins lost 0-2 to Dykstra/Frager (UCLA)
Long/Longo won 2-0 over Smith/Nightingale (UCLA)
Spieler/Taylor won 2-0 over Lowe/Formica (UCLA)
Cook/Tiegs won 2-0 over O’Hagen/Araujo (CSUB)
Long/Longo won 2-0 over Luft/Bush (LMU)
Spieler/Taylor won 2-0 over Suaava/Akana (LMU)
Cook/Tiegs lost 1-2 to Larsen/Woolver (Pepp)
Darn, I bet Cook and Tiegs hate losing to Larsen and Woolever on back to back days. I have a feeling they will get their revenge next month.
thank you for the updates.
