Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - BASEBALL REPORT -

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.
