K-State Topped by BYU

WAMEGO, Kan. In Kansas State’s first outdoor match of the season on Thursday afternoon, No. 61 BYU defeated the Wildcats, 7-0, at the Wamego Recreation Complex.

 

The Wildcats (3-3) won at number three doubles with the combination of sophomore Antea Huljev and freshman Petra Chuda defeating Jocelyn Jensen and Chie Hayasaka, 8-4. This was just the second time Huljev and Chuda have been paired together this season, winning both. The Cougars (5-5) captured the doubles point with wins at the number one and two positions.

 

In singles action, BYU swept through the lineup but not until junior Natasha Vieira extended her match to three-sets. Vieira won the first set, 6-3, but dropped the following two sets to Elizaveta Ezhova.

 

Kansas State returns to action on Sunday, March 8 at 1 p.m. The Wildcats will face No. 32 Tulsa at 1 p.m. The site for Sunday’s match is still yet to be determined.
