Sept. 18, 2015

PROVO, Utah -

Teal Vosburgh will play for the singles title Saturday, at the BYU Invitational. Vosburgh won a pair of matches Friday, winning in straight sets in the quarterfinals and holding off a late rally to win a third-set tiebreaker in the semifinals.

 

Vosburgh, the No. 1 seed in the tournament, will meet third-seeded Donika Bashota of Washington State. The match is scheduled for Saturday at 11 a.m., on the campus of BYU. The championship match will take place after a pair of consolation draw semifinals, both involving Broncos.

 

Nancy Menjivar and Bobbi Oshiro each won twice in the back draw Friday, and line up on opposite sides of the bracket. Menjivar won a marathon match her first outing of the day, rallying for a 5-7, 6-0, 10-4 victory against Holly Monahan of Washington State. Then she downed teammate Milena Toseva in the quarterfinals, 6-4, 6-3. Brittney Eraso of BYU awaits in the semifinal.

 

Oshiro rolled to a pair of straight-set victories, winning 6-1, 6-0 in the first match of the day and 6-3, 6-0 in her quarterfinal. She will face Washington State’s Lize Leenknecht, who beat Kirsty Venter Friday, in the round of 16 in the consolation draw.

 

The strong singles showing came after a slow start to the day in doubles. After putting two pairs in the semifinals on the opening day of the tournament, both Bronco duos dropped quick matches Friday. LaLone and Oshiro lost 6-1 to the eventual champions, while Vosburgh and Toseva fell 6-0 to the top seed.
