BYU women’s tennis takes on Nevada, looking to stay undefeated


BYU’s undefeated women’s tennis team hosts regional rival Nevada Friday morning at the indoor tennis courts.

“They have a good team,” BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “They have good players and they fight hard all the way to the end. It’ll be a tough match.”

BYU (2–0) has defeated in-state rivals Weber State and Utah State so far this season, and has only lost one of the 14 available points in those matches.

Meghan Sheehan-Dizon returns the ball to her opponent during last Saturday’s match.

The Cougars are excited to have third consecutive match at home.

“It’s great for us because we play well on our home courts,” Jones-Spencer said. “I think the girls are really excited to play at home again and I am as well.”

Nevada comes in with two regionally ranked players, No. 14 Michelle Okhremchuck and No. 15 Emma Verberne, who also play together in doubles and are ranked No. 4 in the Mountain Region.

BYU sophomore Meghan Sheehan-Dizon is confident the Cougars can pick up a third consecutive win.

“I think we are all going to come out strong and not let up at all,” Sheehan-Dizon said. “We’re 2–0 so far so we’re going to try and keep that record going.”

The Cougars and Wolfpack were originally going to play this match in Reno, Nev., but due to bad weather it was moved to Provo.

The match starts at 9:00 a.m. and admission is free.
