BYU tennis: Cougars return home for regional match against Idaho
The BYU men’s tennis team returns home for a regional showdown with Idaho on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. MST.
With a 2-1 record at home, the Cougars (5-7) look to swing momentum their way as they take on the Vandals (5-6).
“We’ve been working hard in preparation for the match on Saturday,” BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. “We’ll be hungry for a win.”
With a roster including eight freshmen, junior captain Francis Sargeant stands out, leading the team through 2014. The 114th nationally-ranked player beat No. 87 Slim Hamza last week in the annual rivalry match against Utah, extending his dual match record to 10-1 on the season.
Freshman Jeremy Bourgeois also came away with a win, edging out Cedric Willems, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4.
The Cougars will be on the road next week as they face New Mexico and No. 55 Texas Tech on March 7 and March 8, respectively.
