BOISE, Idaho - The Boise State women's tennis team (6-4) earned a weekend split with a 6-1 win against Montana, Sunday.

The Broncos swept the doubles point for the fourth time this season. Morgan Basil/Sandy Vo were the first to finish with an 8-3 win moving to a team-best 7-3 doubles record. Sonia Klamczynska/Kaitlyn Brown snapped a four-match losing streak with an 8-4 victory at the No. 3 doubles spot to seal the one-point advantage. Marlena Pietzuch/Manuela Pietzuch battled in a tight match that ended 8-6, holding off Montana's team of Pelchat/Davidson by coming back from 40-15 in the final game.

The Grizzlies quickly tied the score at 1-1 with a win in the No. 6 match but senior Sonia Klamczynska pushed the Broncos back in front with a quick win at the top spot, 6-3, 6-0.

Boise State would never look back, winning at each of the remaining matches. Marlena Pietzuch and Manuela Pietzuch won 6-3, 6-1 and 6-3, 6-2, respectively. Marlena won both of her matches over the weekend and is now 8-2 in singles action this season.

Sandy Vo also swept the weekend and improved her winning streak to three matches. The sophomore is also 8-2 in singles this spring.

Basil was the final Bronco to finish and won her match in three sets. The St. Petersburg, Fla., native rebounded from a second-set loss with a 10-8 win in the shortened third set to close out the match.
