    The Air Force women's tennis team wrapped up play at the BYU Invitational in Provo, Utah Friday with freshman Shannon Young winning two singles matches, including the first of her collegiate career, before falling in the consolation final of her flight.

    Young started the day with a 6-0, 6-0 shellacking of Markey Mullen of Weber State in the second round of the consolation bracket of the "B" flight. She then defeated Dee Dee Nelson of Utah, 6-3, 6-3 before dropping a 6-3, 6-1 decision to Greer Satherlie of Colorado State in the consolation final.

    Sophomore Christen Monreal also won Friday, defeating fellow sophomore Katrina Eromin in the second round of the consolation bracket of the "A" flight, 6-7(5), 6-1, 6-2. Monreal then lost in the next round to Klaudia Wlodarczyk of Boise State, 6-2, 6-2.

    Three members of the team are in Boulder, Colo., this weekend to participate in the Colorado Invitational. Freshman Megumi Voight picked up her first career win with a dramatic, 5-7, 7-5, 10-6 victory over Virginia Iwinski of Wyoming in the first round of the Silver singles draw. Voight lost in the second round, 6-0, 6-1, to Courtney Rauscher of Virginia Tech, 6-0, 6-1.

    Fellow freshmen Allie Chermel and Tahlia Smoke each lost two singles matches in Boulder on Friday. They also teamed in doubles, but dropped a pair of matches as well.
