PROVO, Utah – Continuing conference play, No. 72 Santa Clara narrowly edged out the BYU women’s tennis team, 4-3, Tuesday at the BYU Outdoor Tennis Courts.

“The girls came out strong and fought hard in singles,” BYU coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “I think it’s a matter of keeping momentum going and not changing our game. There are a few specific things we need to work on this week in practice. We’re not executing as well as we should, especially on the short ball. We’ll work on that this week and hopefully it will translate into our match on Friday.”
