Hawaii women rally to beat UC Davis in wind

   There was plenty of drama in addition to wind Monday at UC Davis.
   Trailing 3-2, Hawaii rallied to defeat the Aggies 4-3 in a nonconference women's match marred by gusts of up to 30 mph (48 kph).
   Katarina Poljakova overwhelmed Lauren Curry 6-0, 6-2 at No. 2 singles to tie the match 3-3, and Martina Kostalova won it with a 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 decision over Melissa Kobayakawa at No. 3 singles.
   Earlier, Xenia Suworowa of Hawaii routed Layla Sanders 6-1, 6-1 at No. 1 singles to even the match 2-2. 
   UC Davis' top singles player, Megan Heneghan, played doubles only for undisclosed reasons. Heneghan, a junior from Tustin in the Los Angeles area, was named to the All-Big West Conference singles first team as a freshman and sophomore.
   Hawaii improved to 4-12 overall and 3-4 in the Big West. UC Davis fell to 8-11 and 3-4.
   No. 42 San Diego def. No. 56 Santa Clara 6-1 on Sunday in San Diego. No. 1 singles: Thibaut Visy (SD) def. No. 63 John Lamble 6-4, 6-4. Team records: San Diego 14-7 overall, 4-1 West Coast Conference; Santa Clara 13-9, 1-4.
