WSU tennis took down University of Portland on Monday 5-2 to extend its winning streak to nine games.

The Cougars opened the match by capturing the doubles point. In singles play the Pilots rallied and took the next two points. No. 49 freshman Michaela Bayerlova evened the match and sophomore Melisa Ates captured the third point to allow senior Barbora Michalkova to clinch the match for the Cougars for the third time this season.

WSU Head Coach Lisa Hart said Portland posed a challenge, but WSU fought back and won.

“A ton of credit to Portland, they are a very well coached team and competed extremely well, ” Hart said in a WSU news release. “You learn the most about teams when they face adversity. We had our backs against the wall today and had to find a way to win. What I love about our team is we have done a good job of finding points throughout the line-up with everyone sharing turns of stepping up when needed.”

No. 50 WSU is next in action 1:30 p.m. March 23 when they travel to Los Angeles, California, to face No. 47 University of Southern California.
