Broncos best Cougars despite strong play from Miclat


Box Score 

Provo, UTAH – Junior Toby Miclat recorded her seventh victory of the year as BYU women’s tennis fell 4-1 on Friday at home.

“We started out flat in doubles and by the time we put it together it was too late,” BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer. “Toby did a great job fighting today and Savannah (Ware) and Mayci (Jones) both stayed on the court in singles. We need to fight harder as a team.”

The Cougars (4-13, 2-3) dropped the doubles point, losing the No. 1 and No. 3 matchups. Miclat and Mayci Jones fell 6-4 to Santa Clara’s Nabila Farah and Daniella Silva at first doubles, and Natella Nabieva and Taylah Beckman lost 6-4 to Delphine Rouvillois and Zeina El Tawil.

In singles, the Broncos built a 3-0 lead after scoring wins at the No. 3 and No. 4 spots. SCU’s Madison Clarke defeated Nicolette Poulsen 6-3, 6-3 and Nabieva fell 6-3, 6-2 at fourth singles.

Miclat defeated the Broncos' Rouvillois 7-6 (7-1), 6-2 at the No. 2 spot to score the Cougars’ only point of the match, making the score 3-1.

The Broncos clinched the match when El Tawil defeated Beckman 6-4, 6-2 at sixth singles.

BYU will travel to face Pepperdine next Friday, April 15, at 1:30 p.m. PDT at the Ralphs-Straus Tennis Center. Live stats will be available on the BYU schedule page

Cougars begin final stretch of WCC play


Provo, Utah – With an even 2-2 conference record, BYU women’s tennis hosts West Coast Conference opponent Santa Clara on Friday, April 8, at 12 p.m. MDT.

BYU (4-12, 2-2 WCC) looks to bounce back after a close loss last week against No. 39 Fresno State. Despite the 4-3 match loss, the Cougars’ No. 1 singles player Mayci Jones upset the Bulldogs’ Mayar Sherif Ahmed, ranked No. 36 nationally in singles.

BYU is currently tied with the University of San Diego for the fifth spot in the WCC. Friday’s match against Santa Clara will be the first of five straight conference matches for the Cougars.
