BYU women’s tennis is defeated by Yale 6-1


No. 64 BYU women’s tennis took a hit, losing 6-1 to No. 50 Yale.

BYU managed to win the doubles point, taking two out of three of its matches, but the momentum was lost in the singles matches.

“We made good progress in doubles today,” said BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer. “Yale is a good team, and they competed better than us in singles.”

Sisters Nicolette and Desiree Tran fell 8-2 in their match in the first doubles spot.

In singles Jones, Sheehan-Dizon and Desiree Tran each started with the match in their favor taking the first set, but all three suffered in the last two, bringing in three losses for BYU. Freshman Savannah Ware also found herself picking up a loss after three sets against her Yale opponent.

BYU will take on No. 28 Arizona State on March 15, 2014, at noon.
