Boise State Shuts Out Oregon 7-0

The Bronco women's tennis team not only proved it could compete in the Pac-10 Conference but it can win. Boise State shut out Oregon yesterday 7-0 in Eugene.

The #47 Boise State women's tennis team went into Eugene and dumped the Oregon Ducks 7-0 to begin their five-day road trip yesterday.  The Bronco women have now won eight matches in a row.

The #3 doubles team of Elyse Edwards and Bianca Jochimsen throttled their Oregon opponents 8-4 to start the onslaught.  Stephanie Jasper and Marlena Pietzuch followed with an 8-6 win over Julia Metzger and Sabine Fuchs to win the doubles point.

Jasper took to the singles court and produced a 6-3, 6-1 win over Patricia Skowronski and Lauren Megale beat Trudie du Toit 6-2-6-3 to put Coach Mark Tichenor's team on the verge of victory.  Dependable Pichittra Thongdach secured the win with a straight sets win at #1 singles.  Jochimsen, Edwards and Pieztuch also won to complete the Bronco sweep over their Pac-10 rivals. 

Boise State will take on UNLV and UC-Irvine in Las Vegas this weekend.
