The BYU’s Women’s Tennis team was carried by the bottom of its lineup to a win over Nevada, 5-2.
“I think it was a great match for us,” BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “I was really proud of how the bottom half of the lineup stepped up today.”
BYU took doubles now going on 3-0 this season.
Junior Morgan Anderson-Littlewood and sophomore Mackenna Maddox, third doubles for BYU, finished in first with an 8-2 victory over Nevada.
Second doubles was taken by BYU’s freshman Toby Miclat and junior Meghan Sheehan-Dizon winning 8-7 (7-3).
The momentum continued as BYU won the next four single matches. In the sixth singles match, Freshman Savannah Ware won 6-1, 6-0 over Nevada while Miclat followed suit, winning in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2 in the fourth singles match.
Another win was taken by BYU with Anderson-Littlewood in fifth singles beating out Nevada 6-3, 6-2.
“I think Morgan (Anderson-Littlewood) did a great job,” Jones-Spencer said. “She played with a lot of energy from the start.”
Sophomore Nicolette Tran was injured earlier in the week causing some changes in the line-up, but with win after win, BYU’s changes proved beneficial.
Her sister, Senior Desiree Tran kept the trend with a win 6-2, 6-3 in the third singles slot. But, the momentum fell when Sheehan-Dizon lost 6-2, 7-6 (7-5) and freshman Mayci Jones lost 6-4, 6-1.
BYU will be playing at home against San Francisco this Saturday at noon.
