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.

Santa Clara (8-7, 2-3 WCC) remains one spot back from the Cougars in the WCC standings. The Broncos have conference wins over Portland and Pacific and are coming off a 4-0 loss to Gonzaga.

Admission is free to the public and free pizza will be provided. Fans can also follow the matches live.
