Broncos See Plenty of Success in Hosting Jack Taylor Classic

BOISE, Idaho Seven Broncos competed this weekend in the Jack Taylor Classic that moved back and forth from the Appleton Tennis Center and Boas Tennis and Soccer Complex because of a weekend storm. Despite the storm, the round robin tournament was completed on Sunday with all of the Broncos enjoying success throughout the weekend. Boise State hosted New Mexico, Utah and Washington State (all nationally-ranked) in the three day tournament.

Six of the seven Broncos ended the singles tournament with winning records, three of them walking away unbeaten. Friday was dominated by a Boise State women’s tennis team that did not lose a match that first day. The Broncos started the day with three doubles victories over three Washington State teams. The winning streak continued into singles play where the Broncos went 8-0 led by freshman Rocio Frej who picked up her first two victories on her way to a perfect 5-0 weekend.

Saturday brought some more of the same results although the Broncos suffered their first losses. The day started with the three doubles teams going 2-1 against three Utah duos. The pairs of Bianca Jochimsen and Laura Baum as well as Vivien Silfany and Jana Mackova picked up the doubles victories on their way to an unbeaten weekend in doubles. In the singles matches, Klaudia Wlodarczyk and Frej led the Broncos with two more wins; both would go through the weekend with undefeated records.

Sophomore transfer Lauren Megale also enjoyed a perfect 3-0 weekend and helped the Broncos to another superb day on Sunday. Once again, the Broncos went 2-1 in the doubles matches against New Mexico. The women kept rolling in singles as well going a combined 5-2 on the day. Overall, Boise State put together a very impressive 27-5 combined record. The Broncos will split up next weekend as some will go to the Midland Invitational in Midland, Texas and others will to the St. Mary’s Invitational in Moraga, Calif.
