Final Stats

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State women's tennis won every set on its way to a 7-0 win Sunday, against Weber State. The Broncos (3-1) were strong throughout the lineup, highlighted by freshman Lilian Poling winning at No. 1 doubles and No. 2 singles.

"This weekend was exactly what we needed," said head coach Beck Roghaar. "For a young team to come out early in the season, compete their way through some scrappy matches and come away with as many wins as we did is giving us the confidence we need to battle the teams we have coming up. The most important thing we are looking for is growth from match to match, and we're seeing that right now."

Poling and fellow freshman Anja Dokic jumped up to No. 1 doubles for the first time, and battled for a 7-5 win. Both responded with convincing singles wins. Poling fell behind early, but kicked her game into gear for a 6-3, 6-1 victory. Dokic had a similar path with a tough first set, before rolling in the second. She won a first-set tiebreak on her way to a 7-6 (1), 6-0 win.

Kirsty Venter re-entered the lineup and picked up wins at No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles. Venter played with Nancy Menjivar on the doubles court, clinching the team point with a 6-2 win. Venter was then the first off the court in singles with a 6-0, 6-0 win.

Menjivar capped a big weekend with a 6-3, 6-2 win at No. 4 singles to clinch the team victory for Boise State.

Hanna Kantenwein and Jovana Kuljanin rounded out the lineup for the Broncos. The duo teamed for a win at No. 2 doubles. Kantenwein won 6-2, 6-4 at No. 1 singles, while Kuljanin claimed a 6-4, 6-4 win in the fifth position.

Boise State continues its season-opening home stand next week. The Broncos host Portland (Friday, noon; Boas Indoor Tennis Center) and Idaho State (Sunday, 1:30 p.m.; Eagle Tennis Center).
