BOISE, Idaho The No. 40 Boise State men’s tennis team continued their 2008 spring season on Saturday, playing host to No. 52 San Diego State University. The Broncos (9-8) made quick work of the Aztecs (5-5) winning 5-1 in singles play alone. The Bronco win also extends their home winning streak to 7-0, including a 5-0 record at home against Intercollegiate Tennis Association ranked teams.

Due to a short amount of time to play before the Aztecs had to catch a flight, the two teams began with singles play on Saturday, hoping a team winner would result without the need of the doubles point. That idea proved to be true, giving the Broncos a solid win.

The Broncos were led by Eric Roberson who earned the first Bronco win of the day, topping Tim Shulz van Ender, 6-1, 6-1, in the No. 6 singles match. Brent Werbeck was the next to finish, topping SDSU’s Andre Felix, 6-4, 6-2, in the No. 3 spot. No. 59 Luke Shields fought off Matan Shitrit to win in two sets, 7-5, 6-4, in No. 1 singles.

SDSU was the next to earn a win with Bartosz Golas defeating No. 55 Clancy Shields, 6-4, 6-2 in the No. 2 singles spot. The Broncos were able to hold off the Aztecs in the final two matches to seal the 5-1 win. First Steve Robertson battled to win 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 over Danny Heidecker in the No. 4 spot while Piotr Dilaj fought off Jordan Colman in the No. 5 spot, 4-6, 6-0, 7-5.

The Broncos will continue their weekend at home facing No. 42 Pepperdine University on Sunday, March 9 at 1 p.m. The match is slated to be played at the Appleton Tennis Complex, weather permitting.
