LAST TIME OUT: The Broncos made quick work of Lewis-Clark State College this past Sunday, Feb. 4, defeating the Warriors, 7-0.
SO FAR: The Broncos are 2-1 in dual matches so far on the season, defeating Whitman College and Lewis-Clark State College, both by scores of 7-0, but falling at Arizona 4-0. The Broncos are 2-0 at home this season and 0-1 on the road, so this weekend's two road tests will be big for the Broncos. Sophomore Anja Dokic is 2-0 at No. 1 singles so far in 2018, with wins vs. Whitman and Lewis-Clark State. At Arizona, her match was suspended after the Wildcats clinched the match, but she had split the first two sets.
YOUTH IS SERVED: The Broncos boast a lot of experience, despite only having one senior on the squad in Nancy Menjivar. Menjivar won her singles match at No. 6, 6-1, 6-0 vs. Whitman. There is also only one other upperclassmen on the team, in Hanna Kantenwein. Sophomore Anja Dokic, who was ranked nationally in singles as a true freshman in 2017, leads the way, along with fellow sophomores Lilian Poling, Jovana Kuljanin and Wiktoria Nosek. Freshman Palmer and Timm are already instant contributors.
O CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN: Sophomore Jovana Kuljanin is the captain of the Broncos for the 2018 season. A star on the court and in the classroom, Kuljanin earned the "Bronco Chain" as the Player of the Match last week vs. Lewis-Clark State College, winning doubles with senior Nancy Menjivar at No. 3, 6-2, and winning her match at singles in the No. 6 spot, 6-0, 6-3.
