TRAEJEN KINGSTON: Boise State will have an honorary coach join the team on the sidelines Friday, against Idaho State.

Boise State is 2-0 with Traejen as a coach. "He has been a huge supporter of Bronco tennis and is a big inspiration to our players," said head coach Beck Roghaar.

WE MEET AGAIN: Boise State and Idaho State are meeting for the second time this season. The Broncos cruised to a 6-1 victory Feb. 6, in Pocatello. Boise State swept the doubles matches and won at the top five singles positions for the emphatic win.

KANTENWEIN PLAYS NO. 1: Freshman Hanna Kantenwein made her first appearance at the top of Boise State's singles lineup Saturday, at Utah. Kantenwein defeated Margo Pletcher 7-5, 2-6, 10-2 and improved to 3-2 on the year in singles competition. The freshman started at No. 3 singles where she went 1-1 before moving up to No. 2 where she also went 1-1 before getting the call to top the Broncos' singles lineup.
