LAST TIME OUT: Boise State women's tennis began its spring season last weekend, splitting a pair of home matches. The Broncos opened with a 6-1 win against Eastern Washington before falling to Colorado 6-1. Sophomore Kirsty Venter won at No. 6 singles in both matches. Hanna Kantenwein played No. 1 singles each day, pacing the Broncos against EWU with a 6-0, 6-0 straight-sets win. Kantenwein battled Colorado's nationally-ranked Nuria Ormeno Ruiz Sunday, eventually falling 6-4, 6-4 to the country's No. 77 singles player. Nancy Menjivar and Jovana Kuljanin teamed up for a pair of doubles wins.

DEBUTS: Freshmen Anja Dokic, Jovana Kuljanin and Wiktoria Nosek made their collegiate debuts last week. All three picked up wins, led by Kuljanin who was victorious three times, including both of her doubles matches. Classmate Lilian Poling made her dual-match debut after playing this fall season with the Broncos. Poling won at No. 2 singles in the season opener against Eastern Washington.

HOME HEAVY: The Broncos will play at home in 10 of their first 11 matches this spring, and host 13 home matches total this season. Boise State hosts two Pac-12 opponents (Colorado and Oregon) in addition to perennial top-50 programs in Portland and Denver.

YOUTH IS SERVED: Boise State women's tennis features four freshmen, two sophomores and two juniors. The incoming group was named the No. 25 recruiting class in the country last season and sophomore Hanna Kantenwein returns after being named All-Mountain West as a freshman.

NICE TO MEET YOU: Three of Boise State's four freshmen joined the Broncos in January. Anja Dokic, Jovana Kuljanin and Wiktoria Nosek began their collegiate careers this spring, enrolling at Boise State as freshmen.

MELTING POT: Each member of the 2016-17 Bronco roster represents a different country. The Broncos hail from Australia, El Salvador, Germany, Poland, Scotland, Serbia, Spain and the United States. Assistant coach Kristian Widen adds his own stamp as an Sweden native. Undergraduate assistant coach Naomi de Hart is from The Netherlands.
