Bronco Tennis Team Takes Two!

Make it five in a row for the Boise State tennis team. Recovering from an early season slump, the Broncos went down to Utah and captured a pair of victories over BYU and Utah.

The Boise State tennis team completed a two-game sweep of Mountain West Conference schools in Utah, returning to Boise victorious over BYU (6-1) and Utah (5-2). Coach Greg Patton's team throttled BYU yesterday to snap a 12-match home winning streak for the Cougars. The win was Boise State's fifth in a row after dropping their first three of the season.

The doubles team of Thomas Schoeck and Luke Shields got untracked to record an 8-2 win to push their season record to 11-7 and the duo of Clancy Shields and Steve Robertson won their eight match without a loss this year to give the Broncos the doubles point over BYU. The Shields brothers joined Roberson, Schoeck and Piotr Dilaj in singles victories for the Broncos.
