PROVO -- With strong efforts coming in both doubles and singles play, the BYU women's tennis team knocked off SMU 6-1 Monday night. The Cougars (5-7, 1-0) swept the doubles and only lost one singles match to get back to their winning ways at home.

"We played great," BYU head coach Craig Manning said. "We played well in doubles and we played well in singles. The effort was just outstanding."

BYU got off to a great start in doubles play, winning all three matches in convincing fashion. Brooke Beverley and Dominique Reynolds won 8-4 at No. 1. The Cougars took the other two matches 8-1, with Lindsay Ferrell and Lu Oswald teaming up at No. 2 and Elizaveta Khoudoiarova and Nicole Schneider winning at No. 3.

In singles play, Ferrell got it going at No. 1, winning 6-4, 6-3. The win marked BYU's first win at the No. 1 singles position this season. Oswald, Khoudoiarova and Reynolds each won their matches in straight sets, continuing hot streaks for all three players. Schneider won her match at No. 6 in three sets, the third set being a 10-point tiebreaker.

"We worked on being more aggressive and coming into the net, and I think we all did that," Manning said.

BYU has now won three of four matches in its current homestand and four of five at home on the season. The Cougars will continue play at home this weekend, with three matches in four days. BYU will take on Kansas State Friday, Rice Saturday and TCU Monday to complete the seven-game homestand.

PROVO -- After gaining nine places in the national rankings, the No. 43 BYU women's tennis team will host No. 62 SMU Monday at 5 p.m. The Cougars (4-7, 1-0) are coming off an impressive three-match streak, including an upset of No. 12 Washington and a narrow loss to No. 29 Washington State.

In last week's matches, all at home, Lu Oswald dominated at the No. 3 singles position. Oswald won all three matches against Kansas, Washington and Washington State, the final two in straight sets. Her only blemish of the weekend came in doubles against Washington, where Lindsay Ferrell and Oswald lost 9-8 at the No. 2 spot.

BYU will resume Mountain West Conference play in less than two weeks, starting with a match against UNLV. BYU has not played a conference match since Air Force in its first dual match of the season.

BYU will also host Kansas State and Rice on Friday and Saturday, respectively. The Cougars will then take on Texas Christian University next Monday at home before heading off on the road again. The TCU match will end a seven-match homestand.
