Cowgirls set to host first home matches in two years
LARAMIE -- For the first time since April 20, 2019 -- or 685 days -- the Wyoming Cowgirl tennis team will be hosting a home tennis match when Weber State pays a visit to Laramie for a pair of contests.
Wyoming and the Wildcats will first meet Friday at 3 p.m., while match-two will be held Saturday morning at 10 at the Wyoming Tennis Complex.
A limit of 100 fans will be allowed in attendance for this weekend’s matches.
The Cowgirls (4-4) are coming off a tough 5-2 loss at Northern Arizona last Saturday. Wyoming won the doubles point against the Lumberjacks as all three doubles teams won 6-4 last weekend. Sophie Zehender was the Cowgirls’ lone singles win against NAU, as she defeated Northern Arizona’s Ellie Millard, 6-4 and 6-0 at the No. 2 position.
Under head coach Dean Clower, the Cowgirls have been impressive at home, compiling a record of 41-7 (.854) in his eight seasons with home matches, including three undefeated seasons in Laramie.
This weekend’s matches will be the first of just four home contests this season for the Cowgirls. UW will welcome Nevada and Fresno State to Laramie April 10 and 11, respectively.
Weber State enters this weekend with a 2-3 record and is searching for its first true road win of the season.
The Wildcats have played a Mountain West opponent already once this season, a 4-3 loss in February at UNLV.
