Final Stats

ST. GEORGE, Utah - Boise State women's tennis earned an 8-1 win Wednesday, at Dixie State. The Broncos (9-4) won all six singles matches to close the match on a strong note. It was Boise State's first outdoor match of the season and was played with the nine-point scoring system customary at the Division II level.

"It was a really good match," said head coach Beck Roghaar. "Your first match outdoors is never easy as it introduces a few new elements and challenges. Even if it didn't feel perfect, we competed really well and we will be better this weekend for having played this match."

The Broncos will continue their spring break road trip in Las Vegas, taking on Southern Utah and UNLV. The match with the Rebels will be the first conference duel of the season for a young Boise State team that continues to grow from match to match.

Freshman Wiktoria Nosek led the way Wednesday, earning the Bronco Bandanna for the match. Nosek picked up a singles win at the No. 3 position and teamed with classmate Jovana Kuljanin for a doubles win at the No. 2 spot.

"Wiktoria exemplified handling any adversity," said Roghaar. "From start to finish she was incredible in her mindset. She has been working on consistency and showed some great strides in that area today."

Lilian Poling earned a straight-sets win at the top of the singles lineup. Hanna Kantenwein, Nancy Menjivar, Kuljanin and Venter also picked up singles wins.

Boise State is back in action Friday at 10 a.m. PT, against Southern Utah. The weekend closes Saturday at 10 a.m. PT, at UNLV. Both matches will be played at the Fertitta Tennis Complex.
