The Wyoming tennis team will host its final home matches of the season this upcoming weekend. The Cowgirls will welcome the Boise State Broncos, on Friday at 5:00 p.m. MT, and the Utah State Aggies, on Sunday at 10 a.m. Both matches will be played at the UW Indoor Tennis Complex. Promotions for this weekend include post-match autographs on both days while pizza will be handed out to fans on Sunday (while supplies last). It will be the final home match for senior Nastya Tokareva on Sunday.

"It's an exciting weekend for Cowgirl tennis and we are calling all fans to come out and help us get two wins. The team has been looking forward to these conference matches all spring and will be ready to get after it this weekend," UW head coach Dean Clower said. "Both Boise State and Utah State are well coached and programs on the rise in the league. The Broncos are one of the deepest teams we have played all year but so are we. Utah State has improved dramatically and are competitors from top to bottom. It will be the final home matches for our lone senior Nastya Tokareva. She was one of the highest ranked recruits to put on the brown and gold and I can't thank her enough for the contributions she has made to the program."

The Cowgirls enter this week's matches with an 8-10 overall mark and 1-1 in league play. Tokareva sports a 19-12 singles mark while going 11-7 during the spring. Sophomore Magdalena Stencel is 19-11 in singles play while junior Dorottya Jonas brings a 17-13 singles record. Stencel and Tokareva are 9-9 overall in dual play plus 13-11 on the year, while Jonas and fellow junior Miranda Talbert are 9-9 overall and 8-4 in the spring.

Boise State is currently 9-9 overall and 1-2 in league play. This will be the eighth meeting between the two teams with the Cowgirls holding a slight 4-3 advantage in the series. The last time the two teams met was March 29, 2015 with Wyoming coming out on top with a 4-3 victory. The Broncos are coached by Beck Roghaar who is in his fifth season with the program.
