BOISE, Idaho - Boise State women's tennis took the doubles point, but could not hand UNLV its first loss of the season as the Rebels won all six singles matches. The Broncos (4-7) dropped a 6-1 decision Sunday, at the Boas Indoor Tennis Center against UNLV (15-0) in Boise State's first conference match of the season.

The Broncos seized the momentum right out of the gate with strong doubles play. Bobbi Oshiro and Arianna Paules Aldrey made quick work of their opponents with a 6-1 win at the No. 3 position. Hanna Kantenwein and Milena Toseva went back and forth on court two before breaking UNLV's serve and going on to win 6-4, clinching the doubles point.

Kantenwein returned to No. 1 in the singles lineup where she took on No. 63 Carol Zi Yang, her third top-100 opponent in the last four matches. Yang took the first set 6-1, but Kantenwein took over with a 6-2 win in the second. The freshman continued her strong play in the third, but Yang made numerous impressive plays to keep rallies alive and outlasted Kantenwein for a 6-3 win in the third set.

Nancy Menjivar made her first appearance in the singles lineup since January, playing at No. 6. Menjivar put up a fight in the first set before succumbing 6-3, 6-0.

Boise State continues its home stand Thursday and Friday, against College of Idaho and Lewis-Clark State, respectively. Both matches will start at 6 p.m., at Appleton Outdoor Tennis Center (weather permitting).
