BYU women’s tennis hosts Washington State

172

The BYU women’s tennis team will be home for its last four matches of the season starting with Monday’s match against No. 70 Washington State at 10:00 a.m.

BYU will hope playing at home again can help it overcome its recent four-game losing streak. Eight of its last nine matches were on the road.

“The girls are excited to be at home again,” BYU coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “Washington State is a great team; I think it’ll be a really great match.”

Washington State (12–9) is the third consecutive ranked opponent BYU has played. The BYU women have yet to defeat a ranked opponent this season and narrowly lost last week to No. 51 San Diego before falling to No. 43 Saint Mary’s.

The Cougars from Washington State are coming off a 6–1 victory over Colorado on Friday but are just 3–7 in the month of March. They are currently 2–5 in the Pac-12 Conference.

BYU senior Aubrey Paul has been leading the way this season for BYU with a team-high 13 wins and only three losses. She’s currently on a seven-game win streak and hasn’t lost since the first week of March.

Admission to the match is free. The match is scheduled to be played at the outdoor tennis courts, but in case of inclement weather the match will be played at the indoor tennis courts.
