On April 25 the Men's team beat Air Force 4-1, on April 27 they beat UNLV 4-0, and on April 28 they beat New Mexico 4-3.
April 28, 2013
USAFA, Colo. - Junior Nathan Sereke came out a hero after defeating Conor Berg in a third-set tiebreaker to give the Broncos their fourth point in a 4-3 comeback win against New Mexico in a dramatic Mountain West Tournament Final, Sunday. The win marks back-to-back Mountain West Tournament Championships for the Broncos and the 14th conference tournament championship in school history.
With the team score at 3-3 and only the match No. 2 still in progress, Conor Berg forced a third set with Sereke. Berg earned a crucial break to go up 4-2 but Sereke rallied back to go to a tiebreaker where he won 7-4.
"This was absolutely one of the most thrilling college tennis matches I have seen, and I've been around a lot of college tennis," said head coach Greg Patton. "It was magical, Nathan was a lion king out there."
Sereke has exemplified the team's turn in success this year. The Stockholm, Sweden, native started the spring season by losing his first five matches but won 14 of his last 15 matches down the home stretch, including today's clincher. As a team, the Broncos started the season with a 3-7 record before turning things around and winning 17 of their final 20 matches.
The win was especially sweet for Sereke who was on the wrong end of third-set dramatics in Boise State's 4-3 loss to Florida State last year in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
The Broncos started by dropping the doubles point in gut-wrenching fashion as New Mexico took the first match at No. 1, 8-5 but Patton/Sears evened things with an 8-4 win at No. 2. Reid/Mitchell, the duo which has clinched the doubles point in both of the previous tournament matches, could not pull off a tiebreaker win in their match as the Lobos jumped out to a 1-0 lead.
Comeback wins have been a specialty for Boise State which had already won five times this season after dropping the doubles point to start the match - today marked the sixth time.
Garrett Patton was the first to finish his singles match and evened the score at 1-1 as he defeated Andrew Van Der Vyver, 6-3, 6-4.
The Broncos would take the lead but only for a moment as Thomas Tenreiro won his match at No. 5, 6-3, 6-2 as Filipp Pogostkin fell on court four and Scott Sears was defeated on court three. Tenreiro's win marked the 18th-consecutive for the freshman, a streak he hopes to extend in the NCAA Tournament.
With the score at 3-2 in favor of the Lobos, Mountain West Player of the Year Andy Bettles came through with a win at No. 1 against Jadon Phillips, 6-2, 6-4 to set the stage for Sereke.
The last time the Broncos won back-to-back tournament titles was in 2006 and 2007.
The Broncos will see where they will be sent for the first round of the NCAA Tournament during the selection show on www.ncaa.com, Tuesday at 3 p.m.

The final doubles match featuring Boise State’s All-MW duo of Manuela and Marlena Pietzuch on court one was not completed once the team point was decided.
Momentum swung quickly against the Broncos once singles started as they lost three straight to fall behind 3-1. The first off the court was Morgan Basil at No. 3 singles falling 6-1, 6-3 to Sophie Stevens. Basil completes her junior year with the second-best singles record for Boise State at 22-11 to make her 60-34 in three years with the Broncos.
The second singles match decided was court five where Sammie Watson was defeated by Nevada’s Juliette Legendre 6-2, 6-4. Watson finishes her sophomore campaign with a 20-13 record overall in her first season at Boise State.

Megan LaLone pulled Boise State closer when she defeated Shelia Smiley on court four in straight sets 6-4, 6-3 to cut the Bronco deficit to one at 3-2. LaLone finishes her first Boise State campaign with a team-best singles record of 23-10.
The final match completed on the day was on court one where senior Marlena Pietzuch, an All-MW honoree in singles and doubles, lost a tough one in three sets 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 to Nevada’s Michelle Okhremchuk.

The No. 6 singles match was not completed once the team outcome was settled. But at the time its was stopped Boise State’s Manuela Pietzuch was tied at 1-1 in the third set. She had won the opening set 6-0 then lost the second in a tiebreaker 7-6 (4). The senior from Germany concludes the season at 14-4 overall and her two-year Bronco career at 26-22 overall.

Victor Ouvrard put the Wolf Pack back in front shortly after with a 6-3, 6-4 win against Nathan Sereke at No. 2.

At the beginning of the season our goal was to finish in the top four in the conference and we met that goal. We are a very young team that plays exceptionally well at home.
