SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – The Cal Poly men's tennis team won four consecutive singles matches to collect a 4-3, comeback win over San Francisco on Friday afternoon at Mustang Courts. After the Dons won the doubles point, Cal Poly fought back and won its fourth straight match overall to improve to 7-6.
Cal Poly freshman Josh Ortlip tied the match at one with a straight set, 6-1 and 6-2 win over Ty Maguire from the fourth solo spot, while junior Ben Donovan beat Nils Skajaa in two sets at No. 1, 6-3 and 6-2 to provide the Mustangs with their first lead of the day.
Cal Poly junior Corey Pang delivered a three-set victory over USF's Valso Valverde, 6-1, 2-6 and 6-4 to give the Mustangs a 3-1 advantage and junior Garrett Auproux clinched the match with a three-set, come-from-behind win over USF's Ryan Marker, 4-6, 6-4 and 6-2.
Cal Poly (7-6) improved to 5-1 at home this season, after Friday's match was moved up an hour due to inclement weather in the forecast for later in the day.
Cal Poly continues its season-long, nine-match home stand when welcoming UNLV next Saturday for a 12 p.m. matchup at Mustang Courts. Admission is always free.
