SALT LAKE CITY The University of Utah women's tennis team knocked off arch-rival BYU on Saturday, 6-1, giving the Utes their first victory over the Cougars since 1992.
"This is a tremendous win for our program," said Utah head coach Mat Iandolo. "I have tremendous respect for (BYU coach) Craig (Manning) on how he has run his program. It is hard to call this a rivalry since it has been so one-sided in the past, but hopefully this is a good sign of things to come."
The Utes opened up Saturday's match with a tribute to seniors Elizabeth Ferris, Emily Kwok and Cheyenne Reveche.
Winners for the Utes included Ferris and Kwok at No. 1 doubles, and Erin Monson and Andrea Maughan at No. 2 doubles; while the Utes' singles winners were Kwok at No. 2, Monson at No. 3, Leigh Walsh at No. 4, Karine Bourdages at No. 5 and Maughan at No. 6.
Chie Hayasaka and Elle Carney got BYU's lone win at No. 3 doubles.
