PROVO -- Still undefeated in Mountain West Conference play (5-0), the No. 38 BYU women's tennis team travels to Albuquerque, N.M. to take on TCU and New Mexico this weekend.

Currently 13-8 on the season, the Cougars are coming off a 4-2 win over Wyoming last Saturday. No. 87 Kristina Doerr and Chie Hayasaka lead BYU's singles play with five-match winning streaks apiece.

On Friday the Cougars will put their undefeated conference record on the line as they face the Horned Frogs of TCU, who are also 5-0 in league play. TCU has won its last eight matches, with its last win coming against SDSU. The Frogs are led by No. 63 Nina Munch-Soegaard and No. 86 Anna Sydorska. In doubles, Sydorska and Macall Harins team up to form the No. 12-ranked duo in the country.

No. 55 New Mexico's own undefeated conference record was snapped on Saturday after getting swept 7-0 by UNLV. At last year's MWC Tournament, BYU posted a 4-0 win over the Lobos in the semi-finals to eventually go on and win the conference title.

BYU is scheduled to face TCU at 10 a.m. MT on Friday and New Mexico at 2 p.m. MT on Saturday.
