PROVO, Utah – After a 4-0 sweep against Boise State, BYU women's tennis travels to Hawaii this week for two road matches. 

The Cougars (2-2, 0-0 WCC) will face Hawaii (4-2, 2-0 MWC) on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 3:30 p.m. HST and square off against Long Beach State (4-1, 2-0) on Friday, Feb. 24 at noon p.m. HST. Both matches will be played at the UH Tennis complex at the University of Hawaii. 

BYU will attempt to pick up its first two road victories of the season. The Cougars are led by senior Natella Nabieva, who got a 6-4, 6-3 singles victory at first singles against Boise State last weekend, as well as senior Savannah Ware-Avina, who maintains a perfect dual-match singles record so far this season. 

The Rainbow Warriors have won three-straight matches with victories over UC Davis, San Diego and California State University, Northridge. Hawaii's two losses on the season both came at home against Washington (6-1) and Mississippi (4-3). The Rainbow Warriors are led by Cindy Nguyen, ranked No. 96 in singles nationally. 

Long Beach State is 1-1 against West Coast Conference opponents with a 6-1 win over San Francisco and a 4-3 loss to Loyola Marymount earlier this season. The 49ers are led by Maeva Razakasoa, who holds a No. 124 singles ranking.
