The Broncos defeated New Mexico 4-3 on Sunday in the final of the Mountain West Championships in Colorado Springs, Colo. Nathan Sereke sealed the victory for BSU (20-9), winning a third-set tiebreaker after being down a break to defeat Conor Berg 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 (4) at No. 2 singles. This is probably one of greatest tennis matches Ive ever been in involved with, coach Greg Patton said. Absolutely unbelievable. The Broncos also got victories from Andy Bettles, Thomas Tenreiro and Garrett Patton after losing the doubles point. The Broncos, who have won 18 of their past 20 matches, advance to the NCAA Tournament. Theyll learn their first-round opponent Tuesday. We were on the bubble to get in if we dont win today, and we solidified it, Greg Patton said. The last time the Broncos won back-to-back conference titles was 2006 and 2007.
