BYU women’s tennis fell on the road this weekend, losing matches to Washington State and Gonzaga.

The Cougar got off to a rough start against Washington State, losing all three doubles matches to fall behind early in the match and were unable to come back from the deficit.

BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said Washing State is “always tough” for the team especially on the road.

Nicolette Poulsen fought, coming out with BYU’s only point of the match after initially losing the first set but her rally was not enough and the team lost 6-1.

Saturday the Cougars played well in the doubles matches but were unable to complete the victory during the singles play, losing 4-2.

“Against Gonzaga we did a good job in doubles, but in singles we had the match on our racquets but weren’t able to convert those points,” Jones-Spencer said. “I’m proud of the girls for the fight they showed and we will learn from these matches and be better moving forward.”

BYU will play at home Friday, April 1 at 10 A.M. MDT, hosting Fresno State. Admission is free and pizza will be provided.
