Mustangs Stay Dominant at Home with 5-2 Triumph



SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – The 46th-ranked Cal Poly women's tennis team furthered its home winning streak to 13-successive matches on Saturday afternoon as the program downed San Jose State on Mustang Courts, 5-2.

The Mustangs (4-1) opened Saturday's victory by claiming the doubles point for the fourth time during five spring duals. Senior Jocelyn Davis and junior Alexa Lee opened the day at No. 1 by producing an 8-5 victory against Sabi Leon Chao and Erica Medlin. Sophomores Gabby Gatewood and Jen Cornea followed at No. 2 with a 9-7 triumph versus Chau Truong and Alexis Marquez before fellow Mustang sophomores Ane McPike and Kathryn Webb (above) capped the doubles sweep at No. 3 by topping San Jose State's Jessica Willett and Sandra Florea, 8-2.

Lee returned in the top singles spot to best Leon Chao, 6-2, 6-2. At No. 2, Cornea dropped a 7-6, 7-5 decision against Medlin before Davis rolled back at No. 3 to deal Truong a 6-3, 7-5 defeat. Gatewood then produced a 6-4, 6-0 victory at No. 4 against Willett. Webb resumed action at No. 5 with a 6-2, 6-4 victory against Alexis Marquez before McPike wrapped Cal Poly's day with a 2-6, 7-6 (1-0) loss at No. 6 versus Isadora Busch.

"It was a tricky day with a late start and windy and rainy conditions throughout the match. We knew San Jose State would come ready to fight and we kept our composure through the elements and played disciplined tennis," first-year Cal Poly head coach Damon Coupe said.

Cal Poly completes its two-match homestand on Sunday, Feb. 12 with a 10 a.m. Big West Conference-opening contest against No. 64 UC Davis.
