Brown, a Timberline High School product, made her collegiate debut at the Cougar Classic and will don the orange and blue in front of the home crowd for the first time. Also making her home debut for Boise State is junior transfer Manuela Pietzuch.

Manuela will team with her twin sister Marlena in the Blue Flight Doubles. Manuela transferred from Virginia Commonwealth this season and went 3-1 in singles last weekend in her first competition as a Bronco.

In addition to winning the doubles title, Marlena enjoyed a semifinal run in Flight 1 Singles at the Cougar Classic.

Sandy Vo and Morgan Basil will form the other Boise State doubles team, joining the Pietzuch sisters in the Blue Flight. Vo suffered her only singles loss last weekend in the championship match of Flight 3.
