THE MATCH: Boise State women's tennis hosts Utah State Saturday, in the regular-season finale for both teams.

SENIOR DAY: Saturday marks the final home match for Megan LaLone, Bobbi Oshiro and Teal Vosburgh. Head coach Beck Roghaar and the Broncos will honor LaLone, Oshiro and Vosburgh shortly before the match begins. All three have been a big part of the Bronco tennis program since enrolling at Boise State. Each has earned an all-conference honor on the court and led the charge in the classroom for a program which recently picked up its second-consecutive NCAA Public Recognition Award for having multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores in the top-10 percent of their respective sport.
LaLone: 2014 All-Mountain West Doubles; three-time Mountain West Scholar-Athlete
Oshiro: 2015 All-Mountain West Doubles; two-time Mountain West Scholar-Athlete
Vosburgh: 2015 All-Mountain West Singles; 2015 Academic All-Mountain West

ABOUT UTAH STATE: The Aggies are 10-11 on the season and coming off a 5-2 loss at Wyoming. Nini Guensler is 13-7 in singles this spring, including a 10-6 mark when playing the No. 1 position. Utah State is 8-0 on the year when winning the doubles point.

KANTENWEIN NAMED POW: Freshman Hanna Kantenwein earned her first Mountain West Player of the Week award, the conference announced Wednesday. Kantenwein is the third Bronco to earn the weekly honor since Boise State joined the Mountain West and the first since 2013. Kantenwein helped Boise State to a pair of road victories last week at Wyoming and Colorado State. The freshman notched wins at the No. 1 singles position in each match, including an epic comeback against Wyoming in which Kantenwein fended off four match points to win in a third-set tiebreaker. Sandy Vo (2013) is the last Boise State women's tennis student-athlete to be named MW Player of the Week. Marlena Pietzuch earned one weekly award in 2012.

LAST TIME OUT: The Broncos swept a two-match road swing with up a thrilling 4-3 win at Wyoming Friday, and 4-2 victory Sunday, at Colorado State. Freshman Hanna Kantenwein’s dramatic third-set rally completed a heroic comeback by Boise State at Wyoming. The Broncos trailed 3-0 before rattling off four straight wins to stun the Cowgirls on their home turf. Arianna Paules Aldrey and Nancy Menjivar picked up crucial wins at singles positions five and six, respectively, before Kantenwein fended off four match points and won in a third-set tiebreaker to close out the win. Against the Rams Sunday, the Broncos fell behind after doubles, but stormed back to win four singles matches and seal the victory. Paules Aldrey clinched the win on court five as she joined Menjivar and Kantenwein in sweeping their singles matches on the weekend.

LOOKING AHEAD: Boise State will travel to the Mountain West Championship next week in Fort Collins, Colo. The tournament runs April 28 through May 1, and will be played at the Colorado State University Tennis Complex. Seeding will be finalized Monday, based on ITA Rankings. Head-to-head results can be used as a tiebreaker for teams ranked within 10 spots of each other if the conference's coaches deem it necessary.
