Oct. 10, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Sandy Vo and Teal Vosburgh both won in straight sets on Thursday to advance into the round of 32 at the USTA/ITA Mountain Regional Championships for women’s tennis in Las Vegas, Nev. Vo defeated Montana’s Ashley Mackey 6-4, 6-3, while Vosburgh downed Brittany Collens from New Mexico State 6-4, 7-5 to move on into Friday’s third round. The duo are the only Broncos remaining in the main draw for singles at the tournament.

It was a long day for the Broncos at the regional which was delayed by rain on a few occasions. By the end of the day Boise State had only two singles players remaining alive in the competition. Both doubles teams and the other four singles players lost this afternoon in Las Vegas and move into the back draws.

The action began with doubles in the morning with two Boise State teams still competing in the main draw after Wednesday. Unfortunately, the teams did not fare well on Thursday. UNLV’s team of Paola Artiga and Santa Shumilina defeated Boise State’s tandem of Sammie Watson and Anissa Bryant-Swift by a 8-3 score. That was followed by Morgan Basil and Sandy Vo’s 8-6 defeat at the hands of BYU’s Savannah Ware and Morgan Anderson.

The singles competition was originally scheduled for two rounds to be played today, but as a result of the rain only one was started and completed. In addition to the Broncos two victories by Vo and Vosburgh, Boise State also had four others competing in the round of 64.

Sammie Watson finished the day with a loss to Wyoming’s eighth-seeded Veronica Popovici in two sets 6-1, 6-2. Bobbi Oshiro was the next to fall when Lucia Kovarcikova from Utah downed the sophomore from Hawaii 6-0, 6-3. Senior Anissa Bryant-Swift lost to UNLV’s Santa Shumilina 7-6, 6-0, while Morgan Basil was defeated by Jessica Parizher of Wyoming 6-3, 7-5.

Friday’s schedule has been adjusted to accommodate today’s rain delays. The day will start with one round of doubles and two rounds of singles matches.
