No. 33 Cougar tennis secured their eighth sweep of the season defeating Boise State 4-0 Saturday inside Hollingbery Fieldhouse.

The victory was the Cougars (16-4, 1-2) third straight and it improved their home record to 6-0 this season.

WSU jumped out to an early lead over the Broncos (6-6, 0-1) claiming the doubles point. Junior Melisa Ates and freshman Yang Lee won their match 6-1 and freshman Michaela Bayerlova and senior Aneta Miksovska sealed the point for the Cougars with a 6-2 victory.

The Cougars made quick work of the Broncos in the singles matches to secure the victory. Bayerlova, the 51st ranked player in the nation, started things off with a straight set win over Boise State junior Lilian Oping to give WSU a 2-0 lead.

Freshman Hikaru Sato followed with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Broncos sophomore Wilhelmina Palmer.

Freshman Savanna Ly-Nguyen clinched the match for the Cougars with a straight set victory over Boise State sophomore Vanessa Timm.

The Cougars will stay at home to host a pair of Pac-12 foes this week. WSU will face Arizona State 1:30 p.m. Friday before facing Arizona at 10 a.m. next Sunday inside Hollingbery Fieldhouse.
