The lone senior on the women’s tennis roster, Marina Colvee, transferred to UH Hilo after playing one season at San Diego State, and played three years with the Vulcans. Her best season was in 2018 when she finished 10-6 in singles. As a junior, Colvee was 9-7 in doubles. Colvee, a Spain native, is a Pacific West Conference Scholar Athlete and graduated with a degree in marine science.
Congrats to Dell`Eva and Colvee!
