Cougars fall at No. 29 ASU
TEMPE, Ariz. – Savannah Ware continued her stellar play but No. 65 BYU women’s tennis fell 6-1 at No. 29 Arizona State on Saturday in Tempe.
“Savannah really played well in both singles and doubles today. She had a great weekend,” BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “We came out better today in doubles and had opportunities to take the doubles point. In singles we did not play our best and lacked the confidence we needed.”
Ware was the only Cougar to win her singles match, beating Ebony Panaho 6-3, 6-0, and teamed up with Nicolette Tran to take the first doubles matchup for BYU, beating Joanna Smith and Kassidy Jump 6-2. With the doubles score knotted at 1-1, Mayci Jones and Toby Miclat forced the No. 42-ranked duo of Desirae Krawczyk and Stephanie Vlad to a tiebreaker but fell 7-6.
The Cougars return home for a their first West Coast Conference matchup of the season with Portland on Friday at 10 a.m. MST. Live stats and video will be available through the women’s tennis schedule page.

PROVO, Utah – No. 65 BYU women’s tennis (3-2) hits the road this weekend for matchups against No. 38 University of Arizona (3-0) and No. 29 Arizona State (2-2).
The Cougars were last on the court February 6 against Boise State and won 6-1. The squad will look to carry that momentum into the weekend’s matchups with an opportunity to climb up in the rankings.
Arizona puts its unbeaten record on the line against the Cougars as they have won all three of their matches by a combined score of 19-0 thus far. Lauren Marker and Briar Preston lead the Wildcat attack and are both ranked nationally at No. 96 and No. 113, respectively.
Arizona State looks to bounce back with BYU in town, having lost their last match against No. 27 Ohio State. The Sun Devils are also led by two ranked players: Desirae Krawczyk (No. 37) and Ebony Panoho (No. 123). Krawczyk also teams up with Stephanie Vlad as the No. 42 ranked doubles duo in the nation.
