Two Wyoming tennis players, Christa Gecheva and Dorottya Jonas, advanced to the semifinals of the singles back draw as the Cowgirl tennis team completed the second day of the BYU Invitational.

"We took a couple of more steps forward today," head tennis coach Dean Clower said. "The ladies grinded out a lot of tough matches and started playing Wyoming tennis."

In the quarterfinal round of main draw singles, Magdalena Stencel opened up her day with a straight set win, 6-3, 6-3, over Sabrina Demerath of Utah State. She would fall in three sets, 7-6, 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, to Meghan Sheehan-Dizon of BYU in the semifinals.

Four Cowgirls had a solid showing in the back draw of singles play. Gecheva defeated Katie Sweet of Utah State, 6-1, 6-3, followed by a tough three set win, 3-6, 6-3, 12-10, over Lexi Turley. She will take on Savannah Ware of BYU tomorrow in the semifinals. Jonas will also play in the semifinals of the back draw as she defeated Brittanie Eraso of BYU, 6-2, 6-4. She will take on Katie Fitt tomorrow. Nastya Tokareva opened up the day with a 6-4, 6-1 victory against Demi Daniels of BYU, but fell to Fitt in the quarterfinals. The final Cowgirl in action was freshman Cecilia Mercier. She opened up the day with a two set win, 6-2, 6-4, over Amber Stuhlmann and followed that up with a 6-1, 6-0 loss to Savannah Ware.

Wyoming will close out the weekend tomorrow with two singles matches beginning at 9:00 a.m.
