BYU tennis: Jones leads Cougars to defeat Broncos

Junior Mayci Jones recorded wins at the top singles and doubles spots to help BYU defeat Boise State, 6-1, on Friday at the Appleton Tennis Center in Boise.

"The girls did a great job in doubles to get us an early lead," BYU head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. "After that we fought hard in singles and earned a great win on the road."

Jones and junior Toby Miclat clinched the doubles point for BYU (3-8, 1-1) with a 6-2 victory over the Broncos' (4-6, 0-0) Naomi de Hart and Megan LaLone after senior Nicolette Poulsen and junior Savannah Ware won at No. 2 doubles, 6-1, over BSU's Milena Toseva and Hanna Kantenwein.

In singles play, the Cougars continued to dominate. Freshman Taylah Beckman finished first at No. 6 singles, winning 6-2, 6-1, against Ari Paules Aldrey. Natella Nabieva won the next match, 6-1, 2-6, 6-0, at No. 4 singles before Jones clinched the match with a victory at first singles for the Cougars with a 6-2, 6-4 win over the Broncos' Teal Vosburg.

Miclat won at second singles with a 4-6, 7-4, 2-1 (7-5) victory over Kantenwein, while Poulsen dropped the No. 3 singles matchup, 6-3, 2-6, 5-7, to the Broncos' Bobby Oshiro. Ware pulled out a three-set victory over LaLone winning 4-6, 7-6, 16-14, at No. 5 singles.
