BYU commences WCC action against Pacific, Saint Mary’s

Junior captain Francis Sargeant will lead BYU as the team begins West Coast Conference play this weekend.
PROVO, Utah -- After almost two weeks without a match, BYU men’s tennis kicks off West Coast Conference play with matches on the road against Pacific and Saint Mary’s Friday at 2 p.m. PDT and Saturday at noon, respectively.
 
“We've been working on improving as individuals, and as a team,” BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. “We hope individual and collective improvement will translate into wins against very tough WCC competition on the road.”
 
The Cougars (6-9) will face the Tigers (7-7, 1-1 WCC) in the team’s first conference match of the season. Pacific has a win against San Francisco and a loss against San Diego in WCC play this season. BYU is 6-2 all-time against the Tigers. 
 
Against the Gaels (5-6, 0-1 WCC), the Cougars are 2-0 all-time. In its first conference match, Saint Mary’s fell to San Diego 7-0 at Moraga, Calif.
