WSU tennis completed a three-game road trip Saturday with a victory over Brigham Young University to improve to 13-1 on the season.

The Cougars’ trip started Thursday morning against Idaho State University in Logan, Utah, when they swept the Bengals. Freshman Michaela Bayerlova won her 17th consecutive singles match, the second-longest streak in school history.

Later in the day, the Cougs faced Utah State University and won the match 6-1. Bayerlova extended her winning streak to 18 consecutive victories.

Junior Tiffany Mylonas clinched the victory for the Cougars after defeating Aggies sophomore Rhoda Tanui in her singles matches. Mylonas and sophomore Guzal Yusupova also won their doubles match against Tanui and freshman Sasha Pisareva.

Head Coach Lisa Hart said her team handled playing two matches in one day flawlessly.

“I am very proud of the way we competed throughout our entire lineup tonight,” Hart said in a WSU news release. “Our doubles continue to improve, and our players are hungry for competition.”

WSU continued its success in the beehive state Saturday when they defeated BYU 4-0 in Provo, Utah. Bayerlova earned the Cougars’ victory with a straight set win over BYU’s redshirt senior Mayci Jones. The remaining matches were stopped after Bayerlova’s 19th consecutive singles victory claimed the fourth point.

Mylonas and Yusupova defeated sophomores Kate Cusick and Polina Malykh 6-0 to improve their doubles record to 19-0 this season. The doubles duo has only lost seven games in its last seven matches.

Hart said her team performed at a high level against BYU to earn their sixth-straight victory and will be ready for their next match against Boise State University.

“I love how our players competed today and the energy they brought to every point they played,” Hart said in the release. “BYU is a difficult place to play and they are very well-coached. I think we did an excellent job creating opportunities and executing. We now have a very short rest before competing against a very good Boise State team on Monday.”

WSU will face Boise State at 11 a.m. Monday in Boise, Idaho, for its last match before beginning conference play against University of Oregon on Sunday.
