Broncos Set to Host New Mexico and Montana

BOISE, Idaho - The No. 62 ranked Boise State women's tennis team will look to secure its first home win of the season this coming weekend (March 4-6) when the Broncos play host to New Mexico and Montana in a pair of duals at the BOAS Indoor Tennis Complex.

Boise State (7-4 overall, 2-0 Western Athletic Conference) will look to rebound from a pair of losses last weekend in the Broncos home opener when they host New Mexico, Friday (March 4) night, at 6 p.m. Boise State will conclude its weekend at 10 a.m. on Sunday (March 6) with a showdown against Montana.

Last time out...

The Broncos are coming off a tough weekend in which they dropped their first two home duals of the spring with a pair of top 50 losses. With the two losses Boise State falls to 4-4 against nationally ranked opponents, and just 1-4 against top 50 teams.

The Broncos opened the weekend on Friday (Feb. 25) with a 5-2 loss against No. 41 Arizona. Boise State lost the doubles point for the first time all season and was never able to recover. Morgan Basil and Sonia Klamczynska captured the lone singles wins for the Broncos.

Boise State looked to regroup on Sunday (Feb. 27) with a match up against No. 46 Saint Mary's, but the Broncos struggles continued as they fell to the Gaels 5-2 to conclude the weekend. Boise State was swept in doubles competition for the first time all year to fall into an early hole against Saint Mary's. Elyse Edwards and Marlena Pietzuch managed singles wins to put the Broncos on the scoreboard but it was too little too late.

National Rankings...

Boise State enters the week ranked No. 62 nationally after falling 20 spots in the ITA team rankings. After beginning the year ranked No. 38 the Broncos managed to remain in the top 50 for the first six weeks of the season. After a pair of losses last weekend the women fell out of the top 50 however.

Boise State currently does not have any players ranked nationally in singles or doubles.

Looking at the Lobos...

When New Mexico (6-5) travels to Boise this weekend the Lobos will look to turn around their fortunes away from home after a 0-2 record in true road duals to start the season. New Mexico is caring some momentum into the week though, as the Lobos are coming off a 5-2 win over Northern Arizona at home.

Looking at the Grizzlies...

Montana (6-2) will look to expand upon a strong showing in the month of February, this weekend, as the Grizzlies went 6-2 including four consecutive wins to finish off the month. Montana's most recent victim was Idaho, as the Grizzlies recorded a 4-3 win over the Vandals.
