WSU Tennis will host a pair of meets Saturday. The first starts at 11 a.m. at Hollingbery Fieldhouse with the Cougars matching up against University of Idaho.

Junior Tiffany Mylonas has won her last 10 singles matches, the longest streak by a WSU player since Trang Huynh won 15 straight in 2016. Senior Barbora Michalkova improved her career-long winning streak to six matches.

“We worked a lot on energy because the third set is where matches are won,” Mylonas said. “For me, success means we win 7-0 [this weekend].”

Later in the day Saturday, the Cougars will play Montana State University. The Bobcats will start out the day in Lewiston, matching up with Lewis-Clark State at 10 a.m. before traveling up to Pullman for the 5 p.m. matches against WSU.

“Both teams are very well coached, dangerous and very competitive” WSU Tennis Head Coach Lisa Hart said. “I’m really excited. We’re all pulling in the same direction.”
