The BYU women’s tennis team held strong and snapped a two-match losing streak to defeat Loyola Marymount 6-1 Friday night at the Indoor Tennis Courts.

“The team played really solid tennis today,” BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “LMU is a good team, but our girls came out strong mentally and got the job done.”

BYU came into the match having lost its previous two matches. The Cougars were determined not to lose another. This showed as Morgan Anderson-Littlewood and Meghan Sheehan-Dizon set the tone with a quick 6-1 victory to start in doubles play.

In singles play it was Junior Nicolette Tran who led the way for the Cougars. Playing in the No. 2 slot, she posted a 6-0, 6-4 victory over LMU’s Andrea Crespo.

The Cougars are back in action Saturday as they face the University of Oregon in Provo at noon.
