BOISE, Idaho (6/4/2015) - The final Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings have been released for both the national and regional levels with several Broncos listed among those honored in 2015. Boise State's team moved up in the final national team poll to finish the year at No. 59. The Broncos were helped by their strong finish to the season winning the Mountain West Men's Tennis Championship for the fourth consecutive year to advance to their 18th NCAA Tournament. Four Broncos also finished the year listed in the final regional rankings as well. In addition, Boise State ended the year nationally ranked in attendance.

Boise State's most successful doubles team during the year was the tandem of junior Thomas Tenreiro and freshman Lewis Roskilly who went 19-6 during team duals (10-5 at No. 1 and 9-1 at No. 2) to finish the year with their first-ever national ranking coming in at No. 85. It was a great year for the Bronco duo with more to come next year.

The ITA has also released its final regional rankings where the Broncos came in third in the final poll out of 16 teams in the Mountain Region.

The Broncos placed two members in the region's top-20 for singles as both Garrett Patton and Tenreiro finished the year ranked. Patton finished his senior campaign ranked third regionally with a team-best 24-10 mark going 15-3 at No. 1 singles during spring team duals, that includes going 3-3 against nationally ranked opponents and 11-2 versus players from the region.

Tenreiro finishes the year ranked 18th in the Mountain Region after going 15-21 overall and 9-9 in spring team duals playing at No. 2 singles. Tenreiro went 2-4 versus nationally ranked opponents during the 2014-15 campaign.

Boise State also had two of its doubles teams ranked in the region's top-10. In addition to their national ranking the Roskilly-Tenreiro tandem finished the season ranked third in the Mountain Region after going 19-6 overall. They were joined in the top-10 by the duo of Patton and junior Toby Mitchell who finished ranked at No. 9. Patton-Mitchell went a combined 11-7 overall all during the team duals season as they recorded a 6-6 mark on court one while finishing 5-1 on court two.

In addition to those performance rankings the Broncos also finished the year ranked nationally in attendance. Once again Bronco Nation came out in support of Boise State men's tennis averaging 250 per match for a total of 3,505 to rank ninth nationally out of 257 teams in NCAA Division I for both total attendance and average.
