SAN DIEGO - The TCU women's tennis team moved one step closer to the Mountain West Conference championship by downing Wyoming 4-0 on Thursday evening. The Frogs return to action on Friday at 4 p.m. (CDT) when they take on the winner between fourth-seeded San Diego State and fifth-seeded New Mexico.
