BOISE, Idaho - Boise State finished the 2014 Jack Taylor Classic strong on Sunday by sweeping all eight singles matches at the Appleton Tennis Center in Boise to finish the tournament 19-5 in singles and 7-5 in doubles. Boise State’s Bobbi Oshiro and Sammie Watson both went undefeated on the weekend each going 3-0 in singles, then teamed up to go 3-0 in doubles. 
 
In the head-to-head format where each team played the others once, the Broncos came out on top in singles followed by Washington State who was 16-8. The Cougars were top in doubles going 9-3. Note, Washington State and Montana decided to play each other twice in singles picking up extra matches Saturday afternoon, those results were not figured into the above results. 
 
“It was really nice to see our team go out and put a stamp on the weekend with great singles play to finish up today,” said head coach Beck Roghaar. “We finished very strong winning all eight singles matches today which I think speaks to the character and heart this team carries. The third day of any event like this often comes down to who wants to be out there competing the most, and we always make it our goal to be that team. I thought we brought a lot of good energy and play to the courts today to finish off a solid event for us. We gained a lot of valuable experience through the matches we were able to play this weekend, and we’ll be fired up to get out again this week to continue to improve.”
 
On Sunday the Broncos met the Washington State Cougars in doubles at 9 a.m. The Cougars took a measure of revenge on Boise State after the Blue and Orange won the singles head-to-head on Saturday. WSU claimed victories in three of the four matches with the Bronco tandem of Oshiro and Watson the only pair to claim a win at 6-1. 
 
In singles Boise State went up against Weber State with an additional two matches versus Washington State. The Broncos dominated the Wildcats winning all six contests with no one surrendering more than two games in any set, all six victories were sweeps.
