LEWISTON, Idaho- The No. 54 Cougars ended a three-match home stretch with a win over the Boise State (BSU) Broncos. WSU shut-out BSU 7-0 in a dual hosted by the Cougs at the Lewis Clark State College (LCSC) Tennis Center in Lewiston, Idaho Saturday.

The Cougars began the competition by sweeping the three doubles matches, giving them a 1-0 lead over BSU going into the singles competition.

Team captain Tamara Filipovic junior Erica Perkins upset BSU's No. 34-ranked Renate Stoop and Helen Lawson 8-6 at the No. 1 doubles position.

The Cougars then swept all six singles matches.

WSU's freshman Lorena Arias made an appearance at the No. 6 position for the Cougars, where she took down BSU's Laurie Cheug 6-2, 6-0.

'Lorena played well,' head coach Cari Groce said. 'She showed us that she has a great desire to be in the singles line-up.'

WSU improves its record to 4-4 overall while Hawaii drops to 7-3.

'I was very pleased with the way the team played this weekend,' Groce said. 'We matched up well against all three teams and went after them. We had a game plan which we had been working on in practice, and we executed it well.'

WSU will return to action Saturday, March 3 at noon in Seattle as they take on the Cougars of BYU in a dual hosted by the University of Washington. WSU will also battle PAC-10 Rival the Washington Huskies Sunday, March 4 at noon in Seattle.
