Broncos Fall in Tight 4-3 Match at Utah
Feb. 18, 2018

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Boise State women’s tennis team fell in a hard-fought match at Utah, 4-3 on Saturday afternoon.

The Broncos (3-4) were strong throughout, but lost the doubles point, putting them down early. They found back, winning three of the six singles matches, but they were unable to overcome the early deficit.  

“What an incredible match. We have to give a lot of credit to Utah for playing extremely tough today. I couldn’t be more proud of the way we competed at every singles court after dropping the doubles point. That fight gave us a good chance to win the match,” explained head coach Beck Roghaar.

After dropping the doubles point, the Broncos fought at singles, with Wiktoria Nosek evening the match at 1-1 after defeating Victoria Robertson 6-3, 6-2 at No. 4 singles. The Utes took the lead back after winning on court six, but the Broncos fought back, with a win at No. 3 singles from Hanna Kantenwein, 7-6, 6-4. With the match deadlocked at two, the Broncos fell at No. 5 as the Utes took the lead back, 3-2 and then a win at No. 1 singles clinched the match for the Utes. Wilhelmina Palmer finished things off as she defeated Brianna Chisholm at No. 2 singles, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.  

 “Our team continues to improve, learn and grow in every match. There is no doubt in my mind that great things are coming very soon for our team,” said Roghaar.

Next up for the Broncos, they visit Southern Utah on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 1 p.m. MT.
