Men’s tennis

The Utes (2-0) host Idaho State (1-5) Wednesday at the Eccles Tennis Center. They will stay at home for an intra-state clash with Weber State (0-2) on Saturday. Both matches are scheduled for 5 p.m. The Utes began the season with wins over Utah State and Montana State, both at home. U freshman Zach Ganger has gotten off to a big start, winning both of his No. 2 singles matches and both of his No. 1 doubles matches.


In their final competition before the regional championships, the Utes head to the New Mexico Invitational. The alpine team will compete in Taos N.M., while the nordic team goes to Red River, N.M. The competition will be held all day on Friday and Saturday. The Utes are coming off a second-place finish at the Denver Invitational, coming up just short to the host Denver University Pioneers. The alpine team was led by freshman Kim Stephens, who placed second in the giant slalom and seventh in the slalom. Nordic competitor Daniel Sonntag placed second in the freestyle. Sandra Gredig took home third in the freestyle and fifth in the classic. Senior Ben Thornhill hopes to compete this week, after battling an illness over the last month.


Assistant coach Matt McShane has left the U to take a similar position at the University of California. McShane was an assistant under head coach Beth Launiere for the past four years, including helping lead the Utes to a share of their first ever conference title last season.

Women’s tennis

The U women’s tennis team (5-2) has a full slate this weekend, with home matches Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Nevada (0-2) starts the line up, followed by Boise State (0-1) and UTEP (1-2). Freshman Liz Ferris has quickly asserted herself at the No. 1 singles spot. Ferris has not lost a game in the last four matches, and has been solid in doubles as well.
