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.”
