Pack Wins Third Consecutive Match
LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The No. 75 Nevada women's tennis team (12-7, 7-1) won their third consecutive conference match Sunday, defeating Idaho (20-4, 1-3).
The win almost certainly guaranteed the Pack the No. 2 seed at the Western Athletic Conference Tournament in Fresno, Calif. April 29- March 2. The second seed would give the women a bye into the semi-finals.
Senior and No. 95 ranked Maria Mizyuk remained undefeated at the No. 1 singles position for the weekend after a 6-7, 7-6, 10-2 victory over Gabriela Niculescu. The 10-point tiebreaker played after the second set was due to time constraints, as the match had been decided.
Nevada will likely move up in the ITA National Rankings after a 3-0 weekend, including a defeat of the 20-win Vandals.
Nevada will play their final regular season match at home April 24, when they take on Pacific University.
