PROVO -- Saturday’s 7-0 win over the Air Force Academy marked the third consecutive sweep by the No. 53 BYU women’s tennis team. The Cougars remain unbeaten in conference play to improve their season record to 10-6.

“The girls played well,” BYU assistant coach Lauren Jones said. “We focused on individual goals, and they executed well.”

It was another doubles sweep for the Cougars as they recorded wins in all three pairs matches. The squad earned the point after victories by Elle Carney and Megan Price on court one and Kristin Doerr and Jocelyn Jensen on court two. Liza Ezhova and Chie Hayasaka closed things out with an 8-3 win at the last position.

Price notched the first Cougar win on court three, a 6-3, 6-0 defeat of her Air Force opponent. Hayasaka added a point to BYU’s total after her victory at the No. 2 position. Doerr clinched the third straight win for the team, beating Air Force’s Christine Abayan on court one.

In one of the most dominant performances of the weekend, Ezhova defeated her Falcon opponent 6-2, 6-0 to notch another Cougar point. Carney won her first set 6-2 before dropping the second 3-6. The sophomore battled through the third to record another win for BYU. Jensen finished things off with a win, to keep the Cougars at a perfect 3-0 on the weekend.

“It gives us confidence going into next week,” Jones said. “It’s nice to go into some tougher matches with some wins and more confidence.”

The women’s team will continue conference play next weekend when it travels to Texas to face New Mexico and No. 32 TCU, both in Fort Worth.
