PROVO, Utah – In its final match of the regular season, the BYU women’s tennis team swept conference opponent Loyola Maryount 4-0 at the BYU indoor tennis courts on Saturday.

“This was probably one of the best matches we’ve played all year,” BYU coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “We looked really confident and sharp. Hopefully we can take that confidence into the tournament next week.”

Meghan Sheehan-Dizon and Nicolette Tran took an early 3-0 lead on court 1 and never looked back, giving BYU (10-10, 3-5 West Coast Conference) the first win of the day.

Seniors Aubrey Paul and Andie Young were recognized at the beginning of the match in their final home match of their career. The duo then played at the No. 3 doubles position and clinched the point for BYU with a tightly contested 9-8 victory.

The momentum carried into singles play as Nicolette Tran dominated Claudia Razzeto 6-1, 6-2 at the No. 3 singles position, her fourth consecutive win and first at the No. 3 spot.

“Nicolette is a fast player and she played awesome again today,” Jones-Spencer said. “She went out there really focused and took it to her opponent.

Sophomore Morgan Anderson was the next to finish, giving BYU its third point with a 7-6, 6-1 victory over Kristine Kouyoumjian.

Sheehan-Dizon’s win on court 1 secured the victory for BYU. The sophomore from California claimed the first set before losing the second. In her third set, she blew past April Bisharat in seven games to put an end to the match.

The Cougars next travel to San Diego to compete in the WCC Tournament next week.
