Bronco Women Earn Tenth Straight Win, Defeat Pacific 6-1

STOCKTON, Calif. The No. 50-ranked Boise State women’s tennis team extended their winning streak to 10-straight matches with a 6-1 win over the University of Pacific on Sunday afternoon. Due to strong winds in Stockton, the matches were moved to the Hal Nelson Indoor Tennis Courts. Boise State handled the move and improved to a 16-2 record on the season.

 

For the third straight match, Boise State swept the doubles point with wins in all three matches. Senior Laura Baum and freshman Rocio Frej were the first to record a win for the Broncos, defeating Svenja Arens and Kateryna Nezhura, 8-4 in the No. 3 match. Junior Pichittra Thongdach and freshman Lauren Megale picked up an 8-5 win in the No. 1 match, defeating Jenifer Widjaja and Olga Gumenyuk of Pacific. The Broncos closed out doubles play with a win by freshman Vivien Silfany and senior Klaudia Wlodarczyk in the No. 2 spot. The pair downed Jolanta Twarowska and Sasha Fisher, 8-5, to close out the sweep.

 

In singles play, No. 118-ranked Megale bounced back from a rare singles loss on Saturday to defeat Twarowska, 6-1, 6-0 in the No. 2 match. Silfany was finished at nearly the same time, defeating Arens, 6-1, 6-1 in the No. 3 match while junior Bianca Jochimsen snagged a 6-2, 6-3 win over Nezhura in the No. 4 match.

 

Next, the Tigers were able to pick up one win on the day, with No. 101-ranked Widjaja upsetting No. 87-ranked Thongdach, 7-6 (4), 6-4 in the No. 1 match.

 

From there, the Broncos would not allow another loss with Frej picking up a 6-0, 6-2 win over Gumenyuk in the No. 6 spot and Wlodarczyk defeating Clara Schumacher, 6-0, 6-2 in the No. 5 match.

 

The Broncos will remain in California for the spring break week and face the University of San Diego in a 1 p.m. match on Thursday, March 26 in San Diego.
