Cougars Wrap Up Play at Jack Taylor Classic

Sep 21, 2014

 BOISE, Idaho – Junior Lize Leenknecht concluded her weekend play undefeated in both singles and doubles as she led five Cougars to singles victories Sunday on the final day of play at the Boise State Jack Taylor Classic.

In the tournament’s hidden dual format, in which no team scores are kept, the Cougars opened play with three doubles matches against host Boise State, taking three of four matches against the Broncos. In singles play, the Cougars won five of six matches against Montana for the second straight day, while dropping two singles matches against Boise State.

In doubles action, Leenknecht and Elizaveta Luzina won their third doubles match of the weekend, defeating Milena Toseva and Ari Paules Aldrey, 6-3, while Victoria Matejevic and Donika Bashota rode a break of serve to the 6-4 win over Teal Vosburgh and Megan LaLone. Boise State earned its lone victory with a 6-1 win over Maria Biryukova and Grace Lymer-Sullivan while Holly Monahan and Nastia Vasyukhina needed a tiebreaker to defeat Naomi de Hart and Kaitlyn Brown, 7-6 (7-3).

In singles play, Leenknecht capped a 4-0 start to her singles season with a 6-0, 6-1 win over Montana’s Christy Scott while Luzina also won in straight sets, defeating Cam Kincaid 6-1, 6-1. For the second-straight day, Montana’s Sasha Carter earned the lone victory as she defeated Biryukova, 2-6, 7-6, 7-6. WSU also collected singles wins from Bashota, who defeated Hannah Sulz, 6-4, 6-2, Matejevic, who defeated Catherine Orfanos 6-2, 6-2, and from Lymer-Sullivan, whose 6-1, 6-4 win over Anabel Carbo Estruch was her second of the weekend.

Two addition singles matches were played as Toseva defeated Vasyukhina 6-3, 6-1, and Vosburgh was leading Monahan 4-1 in the first set when Monahan was forced to retire.

The Cougars are next in action Friday when they host the Cougar Classic at the WSU Outdoor Tennis Courts. Play runs Friday-Sunday.
