BOISE, Idaho – The Barb Chandler Classic wrapped up Sunday afternoon with Boise State’s Holly Stewart and Ana Conde Vendrell winning the Blue Flight’s third-place match with a 3-0 victory over Idaho’s Katherine Jhang and Andrea Redondo.

“Overall this weekend was another solid performance for us,” said head coach Beck Roghaar. “I feel we are seeing improvement in the areas that we’ve been focused on and that’s really the goal right now. At this point in the season we are looking to identify the things where we want to get stronger and then to go out and put that into action. I really feel like this weekend was a great performance for us bringing home a couple of titles. In addition, we were also able to honor Barb Chandler who was a great patron for women’s tennis over the years, for our program and our community. That’s a very important thing.”

Sunday featured four pairs/doubles competitions highlighted by the third-place match in the Blue Flight. Stewart and Conde Vendrell came out strong and rolled over their Vandal opponents in a sweep. The Bronco tandem shutout Jhang and Redondo 6-0 in claiming the doubles match. They then followed that up with two quick straight-set victories in singles, Stewart beat Jhang 6-0, 6-1 while Conde Vendrell defeated Redondo 6-3, 6-1.

On the week, Boise State went 12-7 in singles matches and 6-3 in doubles. The Broncos won the two main draw championships with Pauline Ernstberger and Joana Baptista winning the Blue Flight title and Bhakti Shah and Nicole Discenza taking the Orange Flight’s title, both on Saturday.

“Most importantly, I think as a team we played well,” said Baptista. “We got a lot of great experience out of this tournament. I think there were some good wins, but more importantly we learned a lot of things that we can apply in future competitions. For myself, I felt pretty good out there this weekend. I feel like every week I’m getting better.”

Boise State will be back in action in two weeks when the Broncos travel to Las Vegas for the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s (ITA) Mountain Region Championships Oct. 13-17.
