Cougars Tally Two More Wins in Conference

FORT COLLINS -- The No. 21 BYU women's tennis team (19-5, 6-1) wrapped up the regular season of conference play this weekend as it defeated Wyoming 5-2 on Friday before coasing past Colorado State on Saturday posting a 6-1 finish.

"We had a really good weekend," head coach Craig Manning said. "The weather was terrible, but the girls all played well and had great attitudes. That made a big difference."

Playing strong at all three doubles spots, the Cougars swept the Cowgirls and Lady Rams beginning both matches with the early lead by claiming the doubles point.

In singles play against Wyoming, the Cougars swept the top three courts in straight sets, but fell at Nos. 4 and 6. Olga Boulytcheva also win in straight sets after coming from behind to push past her opponent 7-6 in the first set tiebreaker.

BYU finished off the Lady Rams in straight sets on all courts but No. 2 where Sofia Holden fought hard but eventually fell to Emily Kirchem of Colorado State in a 6-3, 6-3 decision.

The Cougars finish the regular season ranked No. 2 in the Mountain West Conference next to New Mexico. BYU will head to San Diego next week to compete in the conference championships.
