MSU Tennis headed to Sweet 16

Midwestern State blitzed its way past Colorado Mesa 5-0 Saturday at the MSU Tennis Center to advance to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Division II Championships for the second straight season.
 
Sophomore Kayla Casey punched the Mustangs' ticket to Florida with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Kaylee Davis at the No. 2 singles' position.
 
But it was a sprint to the finish after freshman Paige Boykin steamrolled past Katie Kirby 6-0, 6-0 to put MSU within a point of the clincher from the No. 6 singles spot.
 
It was Boykin's 15th straight singles' win as the Richmond native improved to an impressive 20-1 on the season.
 
The Mustangs were up in every singles' match with Amy Clifton holding a 6-0, 6-3 edge over Natalie Martin at No. 1, junior Taylor Coffman was up 6-0, 5-2 over Shannen McNamara at No. 3, freshman Courtney Anderson led Rachel McLaughlin 6-3, 5-0 at No. 4 and Lauren Pineda held a 6-3, 2-1 ledge over Kristyn Wykert at No. 5.
 
The Mustangs got off to a quick start as Anderson and Boykin were first of the court at No. 3 doubles taking an 8-2 decision over Dodson and Katie Metz followed closely behind by Clifton and Pineda, who combined for an 8-2 victory over McNamara and Wykert at the No. 2 spot.
 
Casey and Coffman battled a bit longer before completing the doubles' sweep with an 8-5 win over Davis and McLaughlin at the No. 1 position.
 
The Mustangs extended their winning streak to 14 matches to improve to 23-3 on the season.
 
Midwestern faces the winner of the West 2 regional championship between Hawaii Pacific and Academy of Art (Calif.) in the Round of 16 on May 14 at Sanlando Tennis Center in Altamonte Springs, Fla.  First serve is set for 9:30 a.m. (CDT).
