From staff reports

Coming off an impressive performance at the Brigham Young University Invitational, Washington State women’s tennis looks to ride its momentum and put in a strong weekend at the WSU Invitational.

Sophomore Donika Bashota is leading the charge after winning her second consecutive tournament title over Boise State’s Teal Vosburgh in three sets. Bashota has found herself at nine wins and zero losses in singles and seven wins and no losses in doubles. She will look to stay undefeated against Oregon, Portland, Boise State and Idaho this weekend.

This past year, Idaho went to the NCAA championships where it lost to eventual runner up UCLA in the first round. After losing two singles matches and three doubles matches, the Vandals were knocked out of the tournament.

The competition is fierce, but with the addition of three new players, the Cougars are looking forward to what lies ahead.

The tournament begins at 10 a.m. today at the Outdoor Tennis Courts.
