Bronco Lady Netters Successful in Oregon

Boise State's women's tennis team got off to a great start, winning 2 of 3 matches on the road.

The Boise State women's tennis team began the season 2-1 on the road, blanking Portland 7-0 and defeating Santa Clara 6-1 before losing a close match against host Oregon 4-3. The Broncos won the doubles point against the Ducks, forcing Oregon to win four of the six singles matches. They did, but not without a fight. Of particular mention is the #1 singles match between 26th-ranked Dominika Dieskova of Oregon and Megan Biorkman of Boise State. It was a straight set victory, but Bjorkman battled hard before losing 6-3, 7-5.

Coach Mark Tichenour's team takes on Weber State this Friday and BYU Saturday in Utah.
