UH’s Melounova headed to NCAAs
Petra Melounova of the University of Hawaii women’s tennis team has qualified for the 2018 NCAA Division I Singles Championship for the second straight year.
Melounova earned the Big West’s automatic bid by being the highest ranked singles player. Melounova came in at No. 80 in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll.
This marks the fourth time in the past five years that a Hawaii player has qualified for the NCAA tournament.
Cindy Nguyen qualified in 2014 and 2015, and Nguyen and Melounova qualified last season.
Melounova is the only player from the Big West to be competing in this month’s tournament. The tournament runs from May 23-28 at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex in Winston-Salem, N.C.
