No. 50 Cougars beat Broncos on the road


SANTA CLARA, Calif. –Senior Morgan Anderson-Littlewood secured wins in singles and doubles play to lead No. 50 BYU women’s tennis to a 5-2 victory over Santa Clara Saturday.

“The girls played tough tennis today and fought hard,” BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “We are looking to build off this math for our home matches coming this week.”

The Cougars (8-7, 3-3) got the first point of the match to go up 1-0 with two quick doubles wins.  Anderson-Littlwood and Meghan Sheehan-Dizon were first off the court with a 6-2 win over Riley Morgan and Zeina El Tawil at No. 3 doubles. Savannah Ware and Nicolette Tran locked up the doubles point when they beat Chelby Cooke and Delphine Rouvillois 6-3 at No. 2 doubles.

The Broncos (3-7, 0-2) evened the score by quickly winning the first singles match at No. 1 singles slot. Sheehan-Dizon fell to Rouvillois in straight sets 6-1, 6-1. BYU then grabbed the next three matchups to complete the match victory. Toby Miclat defeated Daniella Silva at No. 3 singles 6-3, 6-3 while Anderson-Littlewood outplayed El Tawil at No. 5 to a 6-4, 6-1 victory.

With the Cougars up 3-1, Erica Valimaki clinched the match at No. 6 singles against Morgan, winning 7-5, 6-2. Though the match was over, Santa Clara picked up a point with a win at No. 2 doubles. Nabila Farah beat Tran 6-4, 6-7 (7-5), 11-9. Ware won the last point of the match at No. 4 singles, beating Cooke 4-6, 6-4, 6-2.

BYU returns home for two matches this week. They face Pac-12 foe Washington State on Thursday and host a conference match against Pepperdine on Saturday. Both matches are scheduled for noon and live scoring will be available through the women’s tennis schedule page

No. 50 Cougars hit the road


PROVO, Utah – No. 50 BYU women’s tennis heads to northern California for two West Coast Conference matchups this weekend against No. 45 Saint Mary’s and Santa Clara on Friday and Saturday.

The Cougars (7-6, 2-2) will look to continue to build momentum after a strong weekend last week with a conference win over LMU and a victory over visiting Oregon when senior Meghan Sheehan-Dizon clinched the match for BYU at No. 1 singles in a three-set thriller. The Cougars are also looking for the first conference road win on the season this weekend.

The Gaels (6-6, 0-0) are one of the other two ranked teams in the WCC and will play their first conference match of the season when BYU visits on Friday. Saint Mary’s is led by Danielle Flores who is ranked No. 70 nationally in singles and Jana McCord who is also ranked at No. 103. The Gaels also boast the No. 49 ranked doubles duo made up of McCord and Parminder Kaur.

Santa Clara (3-6, 0-1) used a strong showing against UC Davis to win 5-2 last weekend and snap a six-match losing streak. The Broncos head into the weekend with a loss in their only WCC match against San Francisco who also beat the Cougars 4-3 in San Francisco two weeks ago.

BYU will return home after the road trip for a matchup with Pac-12 foe Washington State next Thursday at 12 p.m. in Provo.
