Broncos Reach Perfect 7-0 Score to Defeat Wyoming at the Boise State Classic

BOISE, Idaho The Boise State women’s tennis team improved to a 5-3 record on Saturday afternoon after dominating the University of Wyoming (4-4) with a 7-0 sweep of the Cowgirls. The Broncos were able to win the doubles point by sweeping all three doubles matches while also earning victories in all six singles matches for the win.

In the No. 1 doubles match, BSU’s Polina Kokoulina and Pichittra Thongdach made easy work of Wyoming’s Rebecca Berger and Corina Lazar, winning 8-2. BSU’s Laura Baum and Jana Mackova topped Michelle Brown and Carly Van Hollen in the No. 2 doubles match while Bianca Jochimsen and Klaudia Wlodarczyk defeated Brittany DeFelice and Jamie Nelson in the No. 3 match, both with 8-1 scores.

Nearly all six singles matches were won by the Broncos just as quickly as the doubles matches with Thongdach leading the way in the No. 1 singles match, topping Lazar in a quick 6-0, 6-1 match. At the No. 2 singles spot, Kokoulina downed Berger 6-3, 6-0 while Jochimsen defeated Van Hollen 6-3, 6-3 in the No. 3 singles match. Wlodarczyk beat out the Cowgirls’ Brown in the No. 4 singles match, winning 6-4, 6-0 while BSU’s Stacey Housley made quick work of Sarah Summerfield in the No. 5 spot with a 6-2, 6-0 score. The only match to seem to be somewhat of a challenge for the Broncos was the No. 6 singles match featuring BSU’s Baum and Nelson of Wyoming. Baum easily won the first set 6-4 but was pushed by Nelson in set two finishing with a 7-5 win to seal the Broncos’ perfect team score of 7-0.

The Broncos are now 2-0 on the weekend at the Boise State Classic and will look toward Sunday afternoon when they face Northern Arizona University. NAU has gone 1-1 on the weekend, falling to Wyoming on Friday and defeating Idaho Saturday morning. BSU will take on the Lumberjacks at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 24 at the BSU Boas Tennis Center. A dual between Wyoming and Idaho will be held at 8:30 a.m. prior the Broncos’ match.
