PROVO, Utah – After a week off, the BYU women’s tennis team will resume play as it hosts the Nevada Wolf Pack on Friday at 9 a.m. MST at the BYU Indoor Tennis Courts.

The Cougars (2-0) have played every match at home this season and will look to secure their first 3-0 start since 2006. BYU is 3-0 all-time when facing Nevada, including a 5-2 victory last year.

All three BYU doubles teams are undefeated so far this season.

Mackenna Maddox, Aubrey Paul, Nicolette Tran, Desiree Tran and Meghan Sheehan-Dizon have also won each of their singles matches this year. Desiree Tran is ranked No. 17 in the region.

Nevada (0-0) boasts two regionally ranked singles players in No. 14 Michelle Okhremchuck and No. 15 Emma Verberne. Both play together as a doubles team and are also ranked No. 4 in the mountain region.

The Wolf Pack compiled a 6-12 record last season.

The match was originally scheduled for play in Reno but was moved to Provo due to bad weather.

Aaron Sorenson is the tennis sports information director at BYU.
