UCSD, ranked 21st nationally, improved to 4-3 with the win while UHH remained winless at 0-3. The Tritons beat the Vulcans, 8-1, on Friday as well.

UCSD won all six singles matches in straight sets. Playing at No. 1, Camill Salomon defeated Kainoa Rosa by scores of 6-4 and 6-2. Devon Sousa, making his season debut in singles play, took down Tom Greer-Smith, 7-6 and 6-4, at No. 2.
