LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The Wyoming women's tennis team moved to 6-5 overall on the spring season as it defeated the Montana Grizzlies, 6-1, on Sunday morning.
"Getting a win at home is always good," head coach Dean Clower said. "Many thanks to the fans who came out and supported us. We had some really good spots today and things we need to work on. We are a good team but without the team aspect we are average which we are learning that. If we continue progressing we will be there once conference season rolls around."
