Broncos Conclude Boise State Spring Classic With Sweep of Portland

BOISE, Idaho - Senior Tiffany Coll capped off her Boise State women’s tennis career by leading the team to a 7-0 sweep of Portland, Sunday, at the Appleton Tennis Center.

The No. 40 Boise State University women’s tennis team improved to 16-3 with the win as Coll concluded her career with a 77-24 record in singles (76-percent) and a 73-21 record in doubles (78-percent).

"Tiffany is one of the hardest working players to ever play on a Boise State tennis team," said head coach Mark Tichenor. "She has been a warrior from the minute she stepped on campus with a work ethic that I would put up against anyone. She has been a winner throughout her career and a key factor in the resurgence of the Boise State women’s tennis program."

The match began in doubles where Coll and Klaudia Wlodarczyk broke Lindsey Griffin and Audree Jenks’ serve four times to collect the unchallenged 8-0 victory. The win was Coll’s 22nd doubles victory of the year and third with Wlodarczyk.

Stacey Housley and Tatiana Ganzha wrapped up the double point as they knocked off Christina Feyen and Katie Kennel at No. 3 doubles 8-3. This was the sixth straight match Ganzha has participated in, compiling a 3-1 record in doubles. The win was just the second doubles victory of the season for Housley.

Jana Mackova and Laura Baum made it a clean sweep at doubles for Boise State as they ousted Megan Sporndli and Jenna Tanzer at No. 1 doubles 8-6, to give the Broncos a 1-0 lead heading into singles.

Coll captured her 24th victory of the year when she defeated Anna Gullickson in straight sets 6-2 and 6-0. Coll broke Gullickson’s serve five time in the match to earn the win and the match point for Boise State,

Baum remains perfect in singles during dual match play as ousted Jenks 6-1 and 6-1, to earn her fourth victory of the season and 11th overall.

Mackova provided the match-clinching point with a 6-2 and 6-0, win over Griffin at No. 3 singles. The win was Mackova’s 25th of the season and 15th in dual match play.

Wlodarcyzk collected another point at No. 4 singles as she defeated Tanzer in straight sets 6-1 and 6-2, for her team leading 16th singles victory in dual match play.

Polina Kokoulina improved to 13-5 in dual match play when she knocked off Sporndli in straight sets 6-3 and 6-2.

Bianca Jochimsen ended the match with a 6-2 and 6-2 win over Feyen at No. 1 singles for her second consecutive victory. Jochimsen went ahead 3-2 in the first set before breaking Feyen’s next two serves for the 6-2 victory. In the second set Jochimsen fell behind 0-1, but she battled back and took the next five games and eventually the set 6-2, to give Boise State the sweep.

With the win the Broncos improved to 8-1 in Boise, Idaho, and 4-0 against Western Athletic Conference opponents.

"It has been an awesome season," said head coach Mar Tichenor. "Some of the women really stepped up, showed improvement and made the sacrifices needed to make us a nationally ranked team."
