Bedford Cup in the Mountains Day 3 Recap

Broncos have a strong showing on Saturday


USAFA, Colo. -- Boise State's Anja Dokic came up short in her run through the alpha flight of the ITA Bedford Cup in the Mountains on Saturday as she lost a hard fought match to Idaho's Maria Tavares 7-5, 6-2. In the backdraw of the alpha flight, Lilian Poling defeated Mountain West Opponent Elisa Koonik of Wyoming in consecutive sets by a score of 6-2, 7-5.
On the consolation side of the bracket, Emily Strande advanced to the semifinal round of the consolation bracket after defeating MW foe Ida Krause from Wyoming 6-4, 6-4. Appearing in her first match of the season was sophomore Wilhelmina Palmer, who made light work of her opponent Gabrielle Deckker from Utah State in a 6-1, 6-0 contest.
In the bravo flight, Frankie Trella, after dropping her first match to Emillie Haakansson of Northern Arizona, bounced back to win two matches in a row to advance to the backdraw finals. Trella took down two MW opponents in Ashleigh Harvey of Air Force, and Lauren Rich of New Mexico.
In the backdraw of the bravo consolation bracket, two Broncos will be competing in the final match against each other. Sydnie Binder defeated New Mexico's Maddie Chavez 1-6, 7-6, 10-5, and then squared off against fellow Bronco Jovana Kujanin, and came out victorious to advance to the final round. Meanwhile, Vanessa Timm collected victories against Alexandra Ngo from Southern Utah and Adriene Pavek of Idaho State to earn her way to join Binder in the final.
In doubles play, the duo of Palmer and Poling was taken down by Air Force's Kerrigan and Fumagali in a tightly contested 8-6 match in the alpha semifinal round. Also dropping their semifinal match was the team of Strande and Dokic, who lost to Air Force's Jones and Harvey 8-5.
On the bravo side, the duo of Patton Lossner and Binder has advanced to the final of the backdraw side of the bracket. The duo took down a pairing from Utah State and Northern Colorado by a score of 8-5, and then went on to take down a pairing from Idaho State 8-3.
The action continues tomorrow from the ITA Bedford Cup in the Mountains, as the Broncos will try to continue their promising start.
