BOISE — The Dar Walters Tennis Classic is Friday through Sunday, with matches at the Appleton Tennis Center on the Boise State campus, Julia Davis Park and Timberline High. Appleton is the featured court, with matches starting at 9 a.m. each day, weather permitting. The field includes Boise State, BYU, Eastern Washington, Idaho, Idaho State, Lewis-Clark State, Montana, Montana State, Portland, Portland State, Utah, Utah State and Weber State.

BETTLES SPLITS: Senior Andy Bettles lost to Texas’ George Goldhoff 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-3 and beat UCLA’s Dennis Mkrtchian 6-2, 6-3 on his first day at the ITA All-American in Tulsa, Okla.

BSU SOCCER: The program hosts Wyoming at 4 p.m. Friday, and the Broncos will retire Amy Dunn’s No. 14 jersey at halftime. The defender and former Timberline High standout played 73 games for Boise State from 2000 to 2003, graduated from Boise State in 2003, and died last year after a battle with stage IV melanoma. She was 29. Boise State has retired only one other athletic jersey. Former football player Jim McMillan had his No. 12 jersey retired in the early ’70s.
