Cougars drop weekend match at Boise State

BOISE, Idaho – Freshman Shane Monroe picked up the lone point for the Cougars in a 4-1 loss at No. 72 Boise State Saturday night in Boise. 
Francis Sargeant and Andrey Goryachkov got BYU (7-7) off to a good start in doubles as they were first off the courts with a 6-3 victory at No. 1. However, the Broncos would take the next two matches to secure the doubles point, winning both 6-3.
Boise State (5-8) carried that momentum into singles play and took the first two matches to open up a commanding 3-0 lead. Juane Canales fell at No. 6 singles to Abe Hewko 6-2, 6-3 and Jeremy Bourgeois lost at No. 4 singles 6-2, 6-4.
Monroe finally got the Cougars on the board with his victory over Toby Mitchell at No. 3 singles 7-5, 6-3 but the Broncos would clinch the match shortly thereafter when Boise State’s Lewis Roskilly defeated Aidan Carrazedo 6-4, 7-5. The match was called when the Broncos clinched it, but Sargeant and Goryachkov were both winning in the third set playing at No. 1 and 2 singles, respectively, at the time. 
The loss is the fifth consecutive for BYU. The squad will return home and look to right the ship against rival Utah Friday at 5:30 p.m. and will host their second conference matchup when Santa Clara comes to town Saturday at 5:30 p.m. Admission is free and live stats and video will be available through the BYU men’s schedule page.

Cougars head to Boise for two matches


PROVO, Utah – BYU men’s tennis hits the road this weekend with matches against the No. 44 University of Pennsylvania and No. 72 Boise State on Friday and Saturday.

The Cougars (7-5) will look to use the weekend's matchups to snap their current three-match losing streak. After winning five straight by a combined 32-3 margin, BYU has lost the last three by a combined score of 5-14. Friday morning the Cougars will look for the upset in the program’s second meeting with the University of Pennsylvania and will look to avenge last season’s 4-3 loss to Boise State Saturday evening. Senior Francis Sargeant is currently tied for seventh on the BYU all-time singles win list. 

Penn (6-1) will also look to use the weekend to bounce back from their first loss of the season, a 4-3 nail-biter to No. 68 Brown last week. Freshman Nicolas Podesta is undefeated at 6-0 on the young season and senior Jeremy Court has also tallied six wins to lead the Quakers.

The Broncos (3-7) are coming off of a pair of losses in the Blue Gray National Tennis Classic against No. 24 South Florida and No. 35 Auburn in Montgomery, Alabama. Junior Brian Foley was the only Boise State player to register a point in the matches, recording a victory on court four against Auburn.

Friday’s match against Penn will begin at 10 a.m. MST and Saturday’s matchup with Boise State will be at 6:30 p.m. MST. Live scoring will be available for the match against Boise State on the BYU men's schedule page.
