PULLMAN, Wash. - Boise State began the Washington State Cougar Classic in impressive fashion going 12-3 in singles and 7-1 in doubles after one day in Pullman, Wash. Boise State advanced five into Saturday's singles quarterfinals and three doubles teams into the semifinals.
 
"We had a really solid start today going 12-3 in singles and 7-1 in doubles at the end of day one.  I was most pleased to see our team applying the things we need to in order to improve," said head coach Beck Roghaar. "We're learning a lot about ourselves and how we compete as a team right now, and I think many if the wins we were able to pick up today will fuel the fire for the team to continue to work to improve. We have another big day ahead tomorrow so the focus now is just refueling and getting the rest we need in preparation to get the chance to go compete again."
 
Milena Toseva, Teal Vosburgh and Arianna Paules Aldrey all went 2-0 on Friday to move into tomorrow's quarterfinals of the Crimson Singles Draw. Meanwhile, Megan LaLone won her first match, then lost in the round of 16 and will now battle through the consolation bracket.

The last Bronco to compete was freshman Naomi de Hart who lost in her lone contest on Friday and now must battle back through the consolation draw.  

In doubles competition all four pairs played two matches with three of the tandems reaching tomorrow's semifinals. In the Crimson Doubles Draw, LaLone and Paules Aldrey swept their matches and will now face Washington State's Elizaveta Luzina and Donika Bashota in the semifinals.
