The Players - No. 43 Boise State will feature a full squad of players including Tiffany Coll, Bianca Jochimsen, Laura Baum, Stacey Housley, Jana Mackova, Klaudia Wlodarczyk and Polina Kokoulina.

Coll returns as the lone senior on a young squad. She has been an example on the court with her eight singles victories. Coll has also teamed with Bianca Jochimsen for an impressive 9-1 doubles record in dual play. Coll has proved to be a consistent force for the Broncos throughout the year.

Mackova has been very good for Boise State in the middle of the lineup, posting a 9-1 record in dual match play and a 19-5 record overall. Mackova was named Western Athletic Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Week for Mar. 5, when she recorded two singles victories and two doubles victories in Boise State’s wins over Idaho and Pacific.

Baum has been the doubles specialist for the Broncos, teaming with Mackova to post an 20-3 record and a 9-2 record while playing number one doubles in dual matches. The pair also combined to win the doubles title at the Duck Invitational. Baum has also been flawless in singles matches posting a 3-0 record during doubles play.

Playing atop the order, Kokoulina has posted a 6-1 record at No. 2 singles and a 2-2 record at No. 1. Kokoulina has also teamed with Wlodarczyk to create a formidable duo at No. 2 doubles and own a 5-5 record.

Wlodarczyk has opened her Boise State career with a 9-2 record in singles including five straight to begin her career. As Wlodarczyk goes, so do the Broncos. Her only two losses have come against Wichita State and Oregon which coincidently are Boise State’s only two losses.
