BOISE, Idaho - The Idaho women's tennis team split a pair of matches against in-state foes Idaho State and Boise State over the weekend, as the Vandals beat ISU 7-0 before losing to BSU by the same score.

In Idaho's match against Idaho State, the Vandals got 8-3 wins from Victoria Lozano and Almudena Sanz at No. 1 doubles and Constance Alexander and Belen Barcenilla at No. 2 doubles. Bety Flores and Alejandra Lozano were leading 7-3 at No. 3 doubles when Idaho secured the point.

In singles play Idaho swept through with straight-set wins at all six positions. Victoria Lozano won 6-4, 6-4 at No. 1, Sanz won 6-1, 6-2 at No. 2, Barcenilla won 6-3, 6-2 at No. 3, Alexander won 7-6, 6-3 at No. 4, Flores won 6-2, 6-4 at No. 5 and Alejandra Lozano won 6-2, 6-4 at No. 6.

"It was a nice match to get a win on the board," Idaho coach Myriam Sopel said. "I am pleased with the intensity from the first to the last point and a boost of confidence for our team."

Alejandra Lozano and Flores were able to get an 8-5 win at No. 3 doubles against Boise State, but BSU wins at the top two spots gave the Broncos the doubles point. BSU then swept through singles play for the 7-0 win.

Idaho moves to 1-5 on the season with the weekend split. The Vandals will return to action on Feb. 15 when it faces Nevada in Pullman, Wash.
