HONOLULU -- The third-ranked Tennessee Volunteers continued their success in Hawaii by winning 15 of 18 singles matches Saturday against Louisville at the Rainbow Warrior Challenge.

The first nine matches were played in best-of-three set format, and the second nine were played eight-game pro sets. The Vols won all nine matches played in three sets.

Sophomore Rhyne Williams defended his No. 1 national ranking for the first time and faced eighth-ranked Austen Childs to start the day and earned a 6-4, 6-3 victory. The win way Williams' second against Childs this season and his fifth this against a top-10 opponent.

Williams later collected an 8-1 victory against Alejandro Calligari to improve to 15-2.

Sophomore Tennys Sandgren collected the greatest ranked win of his career, this one also coming at Childs' expense. Sandgren picked up a late break and won 8-6.

Freshman Jarryd Chaplin, who joined the team this week, won his first two career singles matches, winning his first match 7-6, 7-5 against Dante Terenzio. In his return to the team, senior Boris Conkic won both his matches as well, giving him 88 career singles wins.

Senior John-Patrick Smith, ranked 21st, went undefeated, as did 38th-ranked senior Matteo Fago.

On Thursday, Tennessee won 7 of 8 doubles matches against Louisville to open the season.

The Vols are scheduled to play host Hawaii in singles and doubles Monday. The match will not count toward team record, but each match counts individually.
