BYU tennis: No. 71 BYU hosts No. 62 Marshall, Pacific and No. 38 Saint Mary’s
No. 71 BYU women’s tennis opens a three-match home stand beginning Thursday against No. 62 Marshall at noon MDT. Friday the Cougars face Pacific at noon and then round out the weekend’s action against No. 38 Saint Mary’s on Saturday at noon at the Outdoor Tennis Courts.
“We’re excited to be back at home,” BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “We had a good match against ASU and hope to play more disciplined tennis this weekend.”
Last weekend against No. 50 Yale, the Cougars (4-6, 1-0 West Coast Conference) secured the doubles point and took four singles matches to three sets before losing, 6-1. The next day against No. 28 Arizona State, the netters took the doubles point again but faltered in singles in a narrow 4-3 defeat.
Thursday is the first time BYU will face Marshall (10-3, 0-0 Conference USA), which has won seven of its last eight matches. The Cougars have a 2-0 all-time record against Pacific. Friday’s match will be the first meeting between the two schools as members of the WCC.
BYU will also be looking for its first win against Saint Mary’s as the Gaels own the head-to-head record with a 2-0 advantage.
Conference play continues on the road next week against Loyola Marymount on March 28 and No. 36 Pepperdine on March 29.
