SMC rebounded from the loss to the Mustangs with a 3-2 win over the host Cardinal.

No. 3 Hawaii claimed its own Queen’s Cup title in Waikiki with 5-0 victories over Utah and Washington. With the wins in the semifinals and finals, the Rainbow Wahine are now 28-3 on the year, one victory shy of the single season record of 29 set in 2017.

In the upset of the Lopes, Tulane lost on courts 3 and 5 to start the day, but rallied for the victory. After Gabriella Becerra/Rio Frohoff won in straight sets on Court 4, Madeline Mertz/Kaylie McHugh and Anna Chin/Lauren Orlich outlasted GCU for three-set wins to complete the upset. Mertz/McHugh edged their foes 16-14 in Set 3, while Chin/Orlich came back after dropping the opening set 21-14.
