The University of Hawai'i men's tennis team rallied to win its third straight Western Athletic Conference title today, beating host Fresno State, 4-3.

Tied at 3-3, the only match left was at No. 4 singles between UH's Jeremy Tweedt and Fresno State's Tejesvi Veerepalli. Veerepalli led 4-1 in the decisive third set, but Tweedt rallied to win 6-4 to give the Rainbow Warriors (12-7) their third title and a berth to the NCAA Tournament.
