PROVO, Utah -- No. 57 BYU women’s tennis enters the West Coast Conference Championships as the second seed and receives an automatic bye into the semifinals Friday at 12:30 p.m. PDT, at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego.
 
The Cougars (12-7, 8-1 WCC) will face either Gonzaga, Pacific, Saint Mary’s or San Francisco. 
 
BYU defeated Gonzaga and San Francisco by the score of 4-3 and Pacific with a 6-1 mark. The team’s 5-2 upset win over then No. 38 Saint Mary’s was the first win over a top 40 team since 2007, when coach Lauren Jones-Spencer was a senior on the team. This season the Cougars also went undefeated at home for the first time in 16 years. 
 
The team is led by a host of underclassmen.
 
Freshman Mayci Jones plays at the No. 1 spot and is coming off of two straight wins last weekend. Sophomore Nicolette Tran also chipped in with a 10-9 dual record from No. 2 and No. 3 singles.
 
Toby Miclat, also a freshman, posted a 12-7 dual match record from fourth and fifth singles while fellow first-year Savannah Ware saw time at No. 5 and No. 6, compiling 14-5 dual mark. 
 
The women’s action can be followed on the BYU Athletics website, BYUCougars.com.
