|Another win for womens tennis|
LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Idaho women's tennis team reeled off its fourth consecutive win Saturday, topping New Mexico 5-2 to improve to 11-4 on the season.
"Really great 5-2 win today," Idaho coach Dan Pollock said. "Definitely another landmark win for the program. Everybody played exceptionally well. The thing I was impressed with was our mental strength today. If we can continue to come out with that level of concentration and that level of fight I think we're going to be a very difficult team to beat if we can do that moving forward."
Idaho swept the doubles point and got wins at No. 1, 2, 4 and 6 singles for the 5-2 win. Sophomore Victoria Lozano won 6-4, 6-2 at No. 1 and Almudena Sanz, the reigning WAC Player of the Week, won 6-2, 6-3 at No. 2. Sophie Vickers also earned a straight-sets win at No. 4 while Beatriz Flores won in three sets at No. 6.
The Vandals wrap up the weekend with the Western Athletic Conference opener against New Mexico State at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
"Good things to look forward to if we can continue to do what we did today," Pollock said. "We need do that again tomorrow because New Mexico State will be a really tough match."
