Boise State senior Tiffany Coll will play the final regular season home match of her career Saturday morning at 8:30. Coll has displayed excellent tennis throughout her career and will lead the Broncos against New Mexico State at the Appleton Center.
The BoiseState women's tennis team has been
chasing the men's team.Before you get
the wrong idea, let me explain.Since
Coach Greg Patton returned to BoiseState, the men's team has
consistently been ranked in the top 20 in the nation.The Bronco women were ranked in the 60's when
Coach Mark Tichenor took over.But that gap is narrowing.
BoiseState has used a 14-3 record to
steadily climb in the rankings and are getting closer to their male
counterparts.The Bronco men are
currently #21, while the women are all the way up to #40.The BoiseState women's team has never been
ranked higher than #39.
The Bronco team is hosting the annual Spring
Classic this week.The round robin event
features New MexicoState, Portland and UtahState.BoiseState meets New MexicoState Saturday morning at at the AppletonCenter.Admission is free and free parking is
available at the SUB during matches.
Senior Tiffany Cole is playing in her final regular season match for BoiseState.Tiffany has a brilliant 75-24 career record
in singles and 72-21 in doubles.Coll
has won 22 singles matches this season and is 12-1 with Bianca Jochimsen in
doubles."Tiffany is one of the
hardest working players to ever play on a BoiseState women's tennis team,"
said Head Coach Mark Tichenor.
"She has been a warrior from the minute she stepped on campus her freshman
year. She has been a winner throughout her career and a key factor in the
resurgence of the BoiseState
women's tennis program. I would put her work ethic up against anyone."
