The Vulcans go into the tournament with an 11-10 overall record. They have won three out of their last four matches, which includes a 6-3 win over Concordia on March 31. In that match against the Eagles, UHH split the singles matches but swept the doubles column to take the win. Concordia will come to Arizona with an 11-8 overall record.
Should the Vulcans get past Concordia, they would likely face the four-time defending PacWest champion Sharks. Hawaii Pacific is currently ranked sixth in the nation and dealt UH Hilo 7-2 and 8-1 verdicts earlier this year.
“The men had a tough schedule of 22 matches this season, of which 20 were on the road,” McDermott added. “They fought through injuries and continued to improve as the season progressed. I believe they became more match ready, determined and stronger as a team with such a vigorous schedule.”
