LOGAN, Utah - Boise State dominated play at the Utah State Invite over the weekend going a combined 31-7 in all matches played in Logan, Utah. Boise State went an impressive 21-5 in singles matches and 10-2 in doubles matches against Brigham Young, Idaho Sate, Montana State, Utah State and Weber State. Sammie Watson and Bobbi Oshiro both went 4-0 in singles and 4-0 in doubles to lead the Broncos.
 
“The team and staff feel very good about our results this weekend, as well as the progress we’ve made so far throughout the fall,” said head coach Beck Roghaar. “It has been our goal as a team and program to improve from tournament to tournament during this part of the year and we have definitely been taking some very strong steps in the direction we want to go. I think it’s been really great for our players to see where our strengths and weaknesses are, and really embrace the process of learning and getting better. As we head into the regional championships in two weeks we’ll continue to work on these things in order to be prepared to perform well there. I feel the team has a good energy going that is making the process a lot of fun for everyone. I’m very proud of them for what they’ve done in the last two months, and I’m really excited to see just how far we can go.”
 
Watson, a senior from Denver, Colo., recorded four singles victories in Logan, three in straight sets. Her wins came over Idaho State’s Svenja Tegtmeier (4-6, 6-0, 6-1), Utah State’s Maggie O’Meara (6-1, 6-4), Montana State’s Wanda Holopainen (6-4, 6-3) and Idaho State’s Laura Theus (6-2, 6-2).
