Broncos Conclude Day-One of Jack Taylor Open
BOISE, Idaho - The Boise State women's tennis team enjoyed a strong showing on day-one of the Jack Taylor Open, Friday (Oct. 1), as the Broncos played to a 6-2 record in singles competition to kick-off the three day tournament at the Appleton Tennis Center.
Senior Stephanie Jasper and sophomore Marlena Pietzuch helped pave the way for Boise State, each recording a pair of singles wins on Friday. Jasper opened up her weekend with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Lea Jansen of Washington State. She followed that up by beating Olga Musilovich (WSU), 6-1, 6-1, during the afternoon session.
Pietzuch fought back from a 0-5 deficit in her opening round match to knock-off Heather Davidson of Montana, 7-5, 6-0. She would use that momentum to roll through her second match of the day, beating Jessica Gomez (WSU), 6-0, 6-1.
Senior Lauren Megale and freshman Morgan Basil also each recorded a win in singles on Friday. Megale won her lone match of the day in a 6-2, 6-1 victory against Ksenia Googe (WSU). Basil, meanwhile, dropped her first singles match of the day but managed to rebound with a 6-0, 6-3 win over Marina Nicolas (WSU).
Doubles would prove to be successful as well for Boise State, as the women went 2-1 on the day. The Broncos first doubles win came as Jasper and Pietzuch beat Victoria Lozano and Lauren Simpson (UI), 9-8. They were followed by Sonia Klamczynska and Megale who beat Elisabeth Fournier and Liudmila Vasilieva, 8-4.
