Patton doesn't want tennis season to end

By Paul Gerke. CREATED Apr 18, 2014

The Boise State men's tennis team has had one focus all year- win a third ring.

The back-to-back Mountain West champions will play for a three-peat in Fresno next week, but first, the Broncos have some work to do back in Boise. They'll close out the regular season with a home doubleheader against Air Force Saturday morning and San Francisco Saturday night.

Two more wins won't do much for the team's resume- the 24th-ranked Broncos are already a sure-fire bet to make it to the NCAA Championships- but coach Greg Patton is still enjoying the ride.

:I feel like this whole season has been like a party," says Patton with a grin. "All of a sudden, I start to see the midnight hour coming, and I start seeing the Boise police checking in on everybody driving out... And I want to party to last longer and longer!"

"As the night, as the season goes on, the girls look better, and my team starts looking better as the season goes on," he adds with a laugh. "This is like Cinderella and Prince Charming with the golden slipper!"
