Bronco Women Down #41 Utah 5-2

The #41 Utah Utes came into Boise thinking they would walk away with a victory over the Boise State women's tennis team. It didn't happen. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the Lady Broncos topped their rivals to the south by a count of 5-2.

The Boise State women's tennis team is flying high after a 5-2 win over #41 Utah yesterday at the Appleton Tennis Center in Boise .

The Broncos shocked the Utes right off the bat by winning all three doubles matches.  After Utah 's Evgenia Kryuchkova defeated Lauren Megale 6-3, 6-1, dependable Pichittra Thongdach, the #42-ranked singles player in the nation, put away Anastasia Putlina 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 to put Boise State up 2-1.  Bianca Jochimsen came from behind to down Erin Monson 5-7, 7-5, 7-6, winning the third set by a 7-4 tiebreaker. 

Elyse Edwards clinched the win with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Missy Harris at #5 singles.  Marlena Pietzuch was also victorious at #6 singles in straight sets.

Boise State hosts another Mountain West Conference team this Saturday when they meet BYU at noon at the Appleton Tennis Center , weather permitting.
