COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Three Boise State women's tennis student-athletes earned All-Mountain West recognition, the conference announced Wednesday. Freshman Anja Dokic was named all-league in singles, while Hanna Kantenwein and Wiktoria Nosek picked up all-conference doubles recognition.
Dokic posted a team-best 14-4 record in singles, including a 6-2 mark at the No. 1 position. Currently ranked No. 115 in the ITA National Singles Rankings, she is the one of four conference student-athletes nationally ranked. Dokic broke into the rankings after defeating then-No. 27 Carol Yang of UNLV.
The Perth, Australia, native was 4-2 in MW competition and played all six matches at the top of Boise State's lineup. Dokic is one of three freshmen to land on the All-Mountain West Team for singles.
Kantenwein and Nosek formed Boise State's top doubles pairing for the latter part of the season. The duo played together 10 times, including seven appearances at the No. 1 doubles position. They played the top spot four times in Mountain West play.
It is the second career all-conference honor for Kantenwein, and the first in doubles. A sophomore from Pforzheim, Germany, Kantenwein was named All-MW in singles last season. Nosek, a freshman, joined the Broncos in the spring.
Boise State has had at lease one singles honoree and one doubles pair on the all-conference team each of the school's six years in the Mountain West.
Mountain West Championship Seeding Change
The Mountain West also announced a change to the seeding at this week's conference championship. Due to incomplete results originally reported to the ITA, and a change in the rankings once all results were accounted for, Colorado State and New Mexico exchanged places. The Rams are now the No. 10 seed, while the Lobos are the No. 11 seed. The sixth-seeded Broncos were originally set to face Colorado State but will now take on New Mexico.
Boise State's opening-round match remains set for Thursday (April 27), at 2 p.m. PT/3 p.m. MT, in Las Vegas. The Broncos fell to the Lobos 4-3, April 9, in Albuquerque.
