PROVO, Utah – The BYU women’s tennis team wrapped up its last day of the BYU Invitational on Saturday afternoon at the Outdoor Tennis Courts.

The Cougar team of Desiree Tran and Meghan Sheehan-Dizon won three matches in the tournament to get to the doubles championship match but fell in the finals match to Wyoming's Veronica Popovici and Simona Synkova, 8-3.

Synkova also won the singles crown, beating Utah State’s McKenzie Davis.

BYU sophomore Lisa Waldron competed with Boise State’s Teal Vosburgh for the doubles championship in the consolation bracket. The two forced a tie-breaker set but eventually lost to Utah State’s Kallie Sperry and Kristina Voytsekhovich, 9-8, 7-2.

Waldron also earned her way to the finals in the singles consolation bracket but had to forfeit due to injury.

The Cougars continue their pre-season play as they travel to the Cal and Boise Invitationals next week.

Aaron Sorenson is the tennis sports information director at BYU.
