Huang, along with Astle, were also the first Cougars since 2006 to make an appearance at nationals this last fall and hope to go even farther this season.

Huan and Astle come into this season ranked No. 47 in the nation in doubles.

BYU women’s tennis opened its 2023 campaign this last Saturday with an intrasquad blue vs. white match. BYU will officially begin its season on Jan. 27 at Weber State and is slated to begin WCC play at home against LMU on Feb. 10.
