Boise State women's tennis started its crucial late-season road trip Friday, by snapping Air Force's seven match win streak with a 4-3 win. The Broncos (12-6) snagged the doubles point to take an early lead and scrapped their way to a split in singles, including Kirsty Venter's comeback win on court six to clinch the victory.

ENTERING CONFERENCE PLAY -- The Broncos open up Mountain West play on Sunday as they host Air Force. Air Force enters the weekend 8-2, with a dual at Idaho State on Saturday, March 17 before coming to Boise. Entering this weekend, they have won three-straight matches.

FRESHMAN PHENOMS -- True freshman Wilhelmina Palmer has been outstanding this season, going 12-4 in singles overall, 7-2 in duals so far this season, including a 5-1 record in the No. 2 singles slot. Another true freshman, Vanessa Timm has also been solid, going 9-9 overall and 6-4 in duals this spring, including a 4-4 record at No. 6 singles.

ROAD WARRIORS -- The Broncos spent the better part of the month of February on the road. In the six total matches, the Broncos went 3-3, including winning the final two vs. Southern Utah and at Weber State. The Broncos swept those matches, 14-0. Previously the Broncos competed in a tight match at Utah, where they fell 4-3.

YOUTH IS SERVED-The Broncos boast a lot of experience, despite only having one senior on the squad in Nancy Menjivar. There is also only one other upperclassmen on the team, in Hanna Kantenwein. Sophomore Anja Dokic, who was ranked nationally in singles as a true freshman in 2017, leads the way, along with fellow sophomores Lilian Poling, Jovana Kuljanin and Wiktoria Nosek. Freshman Palmer and Timm are already instant contributors.

O CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN- Sophomore Jovana Kuljanin is the captain of the Broncos for the 2018 season. She is a star on the court and in the classroom.
