LOS ANGELES - The sixth-ranked Bruins dropped their second match to No. 3 Hawai'i in three days, falling 5-0 on Saturday afternoon at Stanford's Arguello Park. UCLA droped to 6-3 on the year while Hawai'i improved to 11-2.

Three Bruin pairs pushed Hawai'i to a third set, but all three lost by three or fewer points in the deciding set.

The UCLA doubles pair of Kamila Tan and Jessyka Ngauamo fell at No. 1 doubles to UH's Karissa Cook and Brittany Tiegs, 21-19, 17-21, 14-16. Tan and Ngauamo are now 6-3 on the #1 court.

At #2 doubles, the Rainbow Wahine's Katie Spieler and Nikki Taylor defeated UCLA's Zoë Nightingale and Madie Smith, 21-9, 21-13. The Bruin pair are 2-7 overall at the two slot.

Taylor Formico and Karsta Lowe lost a straight-set match (12-21, 18-21) at No. 3 doubles to UH's Ali Longo and Ginger Long. Lowe and Formico are 3-3 overall (3-2 at No. 3 and 0-1 at No. 4 doubles).

At #4 doubles, Skylar Dykstra and Jennie Frager dropped a three-set match (21-13, 10-21, 13-15) to the Hawai'i duo of Tayler Higgins and Karlee Riggs. The Bruin duo dropped to 4-5 overall and 4-4 at No. 4 doubles.

The duo of Karly Drolson and Rachel Inouye dropped a three-set match to Sarah Mendoza and Hannah Rooks, 21-14, 25-27, 12-15. The tandem drops to 6-3 on the year and 3-2 at #5 doubles.
