LAS VEGAS – The BYU women’s tennis team concludes its run in the ITA Mountain Region Championships in Las Vegas after recording five doubles wins and five singles wins in the main draws. 

"The tournament went alright," BYU women's tennis coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. "We had a few girls stand out and got some good practice matches in. But we have room to improve and are going to get to work in practice." 

The BYU duo of senior Megan Price and freshman Meghan Sheehan-Dizon were the last to fall for the Cougars in the main draws. The pair faced a tough quarterfinal match against No. 3 seed Veronica Popovici and Simona Synkova of Wyoming and eventually fell, 8-1. Popovici and Synkova will compete in the doubles finals Sunday.

More than 120 women’s collegiate tennis players from 19 schools competed during the ITA Mountain Region Championships. The singles and doubles champions will advance to the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships Nov. 3 – 6 in Flushing, N.Y.
