Women's Tennis Takes Doubles Title at Cougar Classic

PULLMAN, Wash.-Boise State women's tennis advanced to two championship finals, including winning the Flight 1 Doubles title, at the WSU Cougar Classic, Sept. 23-25, in Pullman, Wash. Sonia Klamczynska and Marlena Pietzuch teamed up for the victory. Sandy Vo also earned a berth in the Flight 3 Singles championship.

Klamczynska and Pietzuch capped their weekend with an 8-3 victory against Kankaras and Koning of Washington State. The Bronco duo knocked off a pair from the host Cougars in the semifinals as well.

Vo's march to the finals ran through opponents from Idaho, Seattle and Washington State. She lost just one set in her first three rounds before falling to WSU's Ksenia Googe in the final, 6-0, 6-1.

Pietzuch also made a run in the Flight 1 Singles bracket. She breezed through the first two rounds in straight sets, losing no more than two games in any set. The junior fell short in the semifinals, Saturday, with a three-set loss to WSU's Elisabeth Fournier. Pietzuch rebounded to win her final match of the tournament, Sunday, in consolation action.

Klamczynska, also playing in Flight 1 Singles, dropped her first match Friday, before winning two consolation matches in straight sets. The senior capped her weekend Sunday, with a 6-0, 6-0 win.

Manuela Pietzuch and Morgan Basil took the court in Flight 2 Singles. Manuela, a transfer from Virginia Commonwealth and twin sister of Marlena, lost in the first round but reeled off three-straight wins in the consolation rounds to finish on a high note. Basil played her way into the semifinals, before dropping the final two matches of the weekend.
