LOGAN, Utah - After a rough weekend on the road, the Utah State women's tennis team was back in Logan Tuesday, where they completed the home portion of their schedule with a 7-0 win over Idaho State.
With the sweep, the Aggies improved to an even 9-9 while the Bengals fell to 4-11.
The match got started with doubles action, where the Aggies had the momentum from the beginning. Freshman McKenzie Davis and junior Jaci West had a clean sweep of Katharina Marsela and Laura Porras, (8-0). Senior Romina Nedakovic and junior Kristina Voytsekhovich followed with a win over Rilee Moorhead and Marian Tangarife, (8-2). Junior Julie Tukuafu and senior Brianna Rowland (Harris) concluded doubles by defeating Zamira Vasquez and Rachel Ryan, (8-1).
Utah State maintained its dominating presence through singles action, with just a couple tight matches. Davis kept hold of the No. 1 position, defeating Marsela in straight sets, (6-1, 6-0). West was the only one to push her match to three sets, and was the last to finish, but winning in dramatic fashion with super tie-breaker victory, (6-3, 6-7, 11-9). Voytsekhovich took down Tangarife, (6-3, 6-1), while Nedakovic defeated Moorhead, (6-4, 6-1). Senior Monica Abella earned a win over Vasquez, and Tukaufu finished the sweep with a win over Ryan, (6-0, 6- 2).
