Cougars, Aggies set to battle Saturday in women’s tennis


The BYU women’s tennis team hosts Utah State at the indoor tennis courts on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. in the second match of the season for both teams.

The match against in-state rival Utah State is always a difficult one for BYU.

“It’s going to be a tough match,” BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “We’re kind of like their big match of the year; they’re going to come out gunning for us.”

BYU (1–0) is coming off a 7–0 victory over Weber State in which the Cougars dropped only one set. Utah State (1–0) started its season off with 6–1 win against Idaho State last Saturday.

BYU’s No. 1 singles player, sophomore Morgan Anderson, will look to pick up where she left off last week in a dominating performance against Weber State.

“I’m feeling really confident,” Anderson said. “We had a great start last week. We know that Utah State is going to be a step up and everyone’s looking really good.”

BYU had a good week of practice and expects to be sharp this week against the Aggies.

“The girls practiced really hard this week,” Jones-Spencer said. “They played well against Weber so I think we’ll be ready and should be just fine.”
