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.
BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe has announced Zack Warren as BYU head men’s tennis coach.
