PROVO, Utah – After finishing fifth in the West Coast Conference, BYU women’s tennis heads to Claremont, California, for the WCC tournament Thursday through Saturday.

The Cougars (6-15, 4-5 WCC) secured the No. 5 seed in the tournament after sweeping Pacific 4-0 last weekend at home. They will face the No. 4 seed, Santa Clara (12-9, 5-4 WCC), Thursday at 1 p.m. PDT.

In the teams’ matchup earlier this season, the Cougars fell 4-1 to Santa Clara at home with junior Toby Miclat scoring BYU’s only point with a win at No. 2 singles.

With a victory, BYU would advance to the semifinals to take on top-seeded Pepperdine (19-2, 9-0), ranked No. 8 nationally, Friday at 2 p.m.

The Cougars finish the regular season winning two of the last three matches, defeating Pacific and Loyola Marymount.
