No. 19 Boise State Pulls Away from Mustangs for 6-1 Win

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — The Boise State men's tennis team lived up to its No. 19 national ranking Sunday afternoon, moving to 18-3 overall with a 6-1 road win over Cal Poly at Mustang Courts.

The Broncos opened by winning 8-5 on the No. 1 court and 8-4 at No. 3 to clinch the doubles point.

Andy Bettles, the ITA's 86th-ranked singles player in the country, recorded the first singles outcome at No. 1 via retirement.

Cal Poly closed the gap to 3-1 at No. 4, where senior Jurgen De Jager kept his recent hot streak going by defeating Brendan McClain 6-2, 6-2.

In doing so, De Jager upped his record in duals to 11-1 this season, including a 10-match winning streak.

Afterward, Boise State didn't lose again the rest of the way, although the last two courts to finish went to three sets. Mustang freshman Corey Pang fell 6-7, 6-2, 11-9 to Thomas Tenreiro at No. 3 before junior Naveen Beasley lost at No. 6 to Toby Mitchell, 6-4, 0-6, 6-4.

Cal Poly (7-10) will return with a pair of non-conference duals in the Bay Area next week, at San Francisco at 11 a.m. Monday, April 7 and at Stanford at 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 8.
