Good morning, Coug fans!
Today, if you hurry, you might have time to catch your favorite Washington State tennis team take on BYU for the first Dual-Match season! This is new head coach Raquel Atawo’s first dual-match, and it’s already proving to be exciting.
So far, your Washington State Cougars have taken the victory on all three doubles courts- pairs Savana Ly-Nguyen and Elyse Tse took over the third court and claimed victory 6-4, while on the first court Michaela Bayerlova and Maxine Murphy won on court one, also 6-4. The final pair to snag a victory on court two goes to WSU’s own Yang Lee and Fifa Kumhom with a final score of 7-5.
This was Elyse Tse’s WSU debut, as she and fellow freshman Stefaniia Mikhailova joined for the spring 2022 season in November. And what an excellent debut it was! She’ll also have a single match against BYU’s Yujia Huang.
Up next is singles matches.
Some fun facts about WSU hosting BYU tennis, you ask? Well, most recently WSU broke their six year winning streak against the other Cougar last spring, and BYU came in hot to this match after upsetting Baylor (currently No. 11), but losing to Illinois. It’s unclear whether or not that whiplash is going to shake their confidence throughout the rest of the match, but it’s clear they’re putting up an exciting challenge for our Cougs.
The single matches will also bring out Mikhailova, who as previously mentioned is joining the Cougs for her first spring season. While there isn’t much to be known about her yet, this could be quite captivating!
Once again, there’s still tennis left to be watched. Check out the live stats or live stream at the links below!
I hope everyone has a great weekend, and Go Cougs!
