Final Stats

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Toby Mitchell’s three-set singles victory handed Boise State its third-consecutive victory as the Broncos downed Air Force 6-1 on the road in a Mountain West Conference men’s tennis match Friday afternoon in Colorado. Air Force struck early winning the doubles point. Boise State rallied with a dominating performance in singles sweeping all six matches with victories by Kyle Butters, Thomas Tenreiro, Brian Foley, Toby Mitchell, Lewis Roskilly and Pedro Platzeck, respectively.

The win improved Boise State to 12-8 overall and 1-1 in conference play. Next up is the final road match of the season Sunday afternoon at New Mexico.

“What a great win over a scrappy Air Force team,” said coach Greg Patton. “Our singles are beautiful and our doubles are really ugly. It is so hard playing at Air Force with the altitude and weather, but we fought through it and got the win. We have won five of our last six matches so I am excited about where we are right now as a team. Now we have a big match on Sunday at New Mexico.”

Air Force claimed the early lead by winning the team doubles point 2-0 with victories on courts three and one.

Trailing by one, Boise State regrouped and dominated the singles competition winning all six contests, five in straight sets.

Kyle Butters brought the Broncos even when he downed Isaac Perez in 6-3, 6-4. The win improved his singles record to 16-10 overall and 11-7 in duals this spring. The freshman from New Zealand has now won six straight matches.

Tenreiro remains undefeated in duals this semester going to 6-0 at No. 2 singles while going to 13-1 overall this year.

Brian Foley moved the blue and orange to within one point of victory when he beat Jack McCullers at No. 1 singles in two sets 6-4, 7-5. The senior from Henderson, Nev., is now 11-10 overall and 7-7 in duals.
