Final Stats

GREELEY, Colo. - Boise State women’s tennis saw its season come to an end Friday, with a 4-1 loss to San Jose State in the quarterfinals of the Mountain West Championship. The fifth-seeded Broncos took the doubles point before the fourth-seeded Spartans ran off the first four singles matches to claim victory at the Work Out West Fitness and Tennis Center in Greeley, Colo.

The Broncos shuffled their doubles lineup to great success. Hanna Kantenwein and Milena Toseva moved up to the No. 1 position and responded with a 6-1 win over SJSU’s all-conference pairing of Sybille Gauvain and Marie Klocker. Nancy Menjivar and Teal Vosburgh returned to the doubles lineup at No. 3 and cruised to a 6-2 win.

The Spartans had won the doubles point 12 times this season, including three times against ranked opponents.

San Jose State wasted little time seizing the momentum once singles began. The top four singles matches took the courts and the Spartans won the first set in all of them. They evened the team score with a straight-sets win on court three where Boise State’s Bobbi Oshiro fell 6-4, 6-3.

Boise State bounced back on the remaining three courts with Kantenwein (No. 1), Vosburgh (No. 2) and Megan LaLone (No. 4) forcing third sets. Eventually the Spartans outlasted the Broncos in the decisive games and advanced to the semifinals.

The Broncos finish the season 12-10. Boise State will lose three successful seniors to graduation as LaLone, Oshiro and Vosburgh wrapped up their careers. Six members of the team are expected to return next year and will be joined by the first nationally-ranked recruiting class in program history.
