Lady Broncos Win Spring Invitational Tennis

The surprising Boise State women's tennis team added three more victories to its total this weekend to win the Spring Invitational Tennis Tournament. Inside, a recap of all the action.

The Boise State women's tennis team captured the Spring Invitational this weekend, with a 6-1 victory over previously unbeaten Wyoming at the Boas Tennis and Soccer Complex. Coach Mark Tichenor's team also blanked Eastern Washington 7-0 and defeated Utah 6-1 to go undefeated in the tournament. The Broncos are now 6-1 on the season.

The Broncos, now 6-1 on the season, were also victorious over Eastern Washington (7-0) and Utah (6-1), Feb. 10.

The key to victory has been winning the doubles point, which they've done in all six dual matches this year. Senior Alanah Carroll and freshman Tatiana Ganzha rebounded from their first loss of the season, Feb. 10, against Utah, and downed Wyoming juniors Andrea House and Amy Senko, 8-2. Carroll and Ganzha are now 6-1 this spring and 10-4 this season.

Junior Tiffany Coll and freshman Jana Mackova clinched the doubles point for the Broncos winning 8-1. Coll and Mackova are 6-0 this spring and 10-1 overall. Seniors Hadley MacFarlane and Megan Biorkman posted an 8-3 to improve their season record to 15-4.

Ganzha also recorded a singles win, becoming the first Bronco to reach 20 wins this season. Ganzha is now 20-2
In only her third match as a Bronco, freshman Laura Baum posted a 6-1, 6-1, victory at the No. 6 position. Baum is a perfect 3-0 since joining Boise State this spring.

Biorkman clinched the match for the Broncos with a straight-set victory over Chien at the No. 1 position. With the 6-1, 6-4, win, Biorkman is now 6-1 this spring.

Boise State will travel to Las Vegas in two weeks to compete in the UNLV Invitational.
