BOISE, Idaho - (Feb. 3) The SU women's tennis team hung tough on the road against a talented Boise State team before falling 6-1 to the Broncos.
Freshman Kali McCollister earned a singles victory for the Redhawks by defeating Boise State's Jovana Kuljanin in three sets 6-3, 3-6, 1-0 (10-3). Junior Madison Maloney took her singles match with Lilian Poling to three sets as well, but was not able to secure the victory, losing 1-6, 7-5, 1-0 (10-3).
The Redhawks showed some improvement in their doubles play, which pleased head coach Adam Reeb.
"Boise State is a tough environment to play in," said Reeb. "Our doubles was pretty good tonight and we started pretty well in singles on a few courts as well. We're getting better each match which is what we're focused on. Kali stepped up and played a great tiebreaker to win her match. We've got to have the best energy and fight tomorrow when we play Weber State."
Seattle U returns to the courts tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. as they face off with Weber State before traveling back to Seattle. Next Saturday, SU will travel to Spokane, Wash., to take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs with a match start time of 3:00 p.m.
