No. 9 seed WSU tennis swept No. 8 seed Colorado 4-0 in the first round of the Pac-12 Championships on Wednesday. 

The Cougars now advance to face No. 1 seed Stanford, the No. 4 team nationally, on Thursday.

WSU (19-9, 4-7) got revenge on the Buffaloes (10-14, 3-8) after falling to them 4-3 in Boulder earlier this season.  

The Cougars started fast in doubles play as freshman Hikaru Sato and senior Tiffany Mylonas bested the No. 31 ranked doubles team 6-1.

Sophomore Michaela Bayerlova and senior Aneta Miksovska also took charge in their match and claimed a 6-3 win to give WSU an early 1-0 lead.

“I was impressed with our energy from the start today,” Head Coach Lisa Hart said. “We came out strong in doubles and carried that over into singles.”

In singles play, Mylonas got the Cougars off on the right foot by claiming her match 6-4, 6-1.

The Cougars added to their 2-0 lead three minutes later when Ates earned a 6-4, 6-2 victory over her opponent. 

WSU was now up 3-0 and Miksovska had the chance to clinch the match. The senior dominated her opponent 6-1, 6-3 to seal the 4-0 victory for the Cougars. 

“Our seniors led the way today,” Hart said. “Now we will turn our focus to Stanford.”

WSU will take on No. 1 seed Stanford in the quarterfinals of the conference championships noon Thursday at Weil Tennis Academy in Ojai, California.
