Two Wins End Regular Season

April 23, 2016


BOISE, Idaho - Boise State men's tennis swept a doubleheader Saturday, with a pair of shutouts against Gonzaga and Idaho. The Broncos (18-9) started the day with a 5-0 decision against Gonzaga (5-14) and closed it out with a 4-0 victory over the Vandals (14-6) to finish the regular season winning 11 of their last 13 matches.

Thomas Tenreiro and Lewis Roskilly paired up to win twice at No. 2 doubles and each claimed singles wins in both matches.

Kyle Butters, Pedro Platzeck and Brian Foley also collected wins in singles play. Butters and Platzeck won against Gonzaga on courts four and five, respectively. The Broncos led 3-0 before Platzeck and Roskilly finished nearly simultaneously, creating a 5-0 final score.

Foley clinched the match against Idaho with a 7-6, 7-5 win at the top singles position.

The Broncos and Vandals started their match outdoors at the Appleton Tennis Center. Boise State was on the verge of clinching with a 3-0 lead when rains returned and caused a delay. The hiatus would last nearly an hour in total before play resumed at the Boas Indoor Tennis Center. Less than 30 minutes after picking back up, Foley ended the night.

The remaining matches were all in the third set when Foley clinched, with Boise State trailing in two of them and no games completed in the other.

Boise State will vie for its fifth Mountain West Championship title next week. The Broncos have never lost at the Mountain West Championship, recording an 11-0 record through their first four years as conference members.
