Final Stats

POCATELLO, Idaho - Boise State women’s tennis emphatically returned to the win column Saturday, with a 6-1 victory at Idaho State. The Broncos (2-2) rolled to the doubles point and wins at the top five singles spots.

“We played a really solid match start to finish today and I was proud of the team for stepping up in some areas that we’ve been looking to improve over the last few matches,” said head coach Beck Roghaar. “Idaho State competes really well and we hadn’t played them on the road in a long time, so it was important for us to come out and compete the way we needed to from the beginning in order to pull ahead in the race early.”

Roghaar mixed up the doubles pairs for the first time this season, including the spring debut for Naomi de Hart and combining the Broncos’ German tandem of Milena Toseva and Hanna Kantenwein. Toseva and Kantenwein cruised to a 6-2 win at No. 2 doubles to get the day started. Bobbi Oshio and Arianna Paules Aldrey, who have played doubles together in all four matches this spring, wrapped up a 6-3 win on court three to clinch the point. Megan LaLone paired with de Hart on court one and picked up a 6-3 win to round out the doubles effort.

Kantenwein and Oshiro stayed on courts two and three, respectively, and made quick work of their singles match. Oshiro won 6-2, 6-4 to improve to 3-1 in singles competition this spring. Kantenwein, a freshman, won 6-2, 6-3 for her second straight-sets win of the year.

Teal Vosburgh clinched the team victory with a 6-0, 7-5 decision at the No. 1 spot. It was Vosburgh’s first win of the spring, playing all of them at the top of the Boise State lineup. With the match in hand, the Broncos continued to battle in the final three singles contests.

Toseva carried her momentum from doubles to the court at No. 4 singles. The junior fought off Nonie Alexandersen for an impressive 6-4, 6-2 straight-sets win that captured the attention of her coach and temmates.

“I was proud of Milena for earning the Bronco Bandana with her efforts today,” said Roghaar. “Her opponent came out firing and she weathered the storm and competed as well as I’ve seen her compete.”

LaLone also won her singles match- 6-4, 6-2- on court five. LaLone is 2-2 on the year, including a 2-1 mark at No. 5. Kirsty Venter made her spring debut on court six. Venter won the first set, but dropped the second and eventually fell 13-11 in a third-set tiebreak.

Boise State returns to action at Utah Saturday (Feb. 13), at 10 a.m. MT in Salt Lake City.

“We’re looking forward to next weekend on the road and will need to continue to see the things we saw today in order to take a shot at a very good Utah team,” Roghaar said.
