No. 46 Cal Poly Drops Big West Opener versus No 64 UC Davis


SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – Despite earning the doubles point for the fifth time during six spring matches, the Cal Poly women's tennis program saw its 13-contest home winning streak snapped with a 4-3 loss against No. 64 UC Davis during Sunday's Big West Conference opener on Mustang Courts.

Cal Poly, which had last dropped a home contest on April 2, 2010, saw senior Jocelyn Davis (above) and junior Alexa Lee open Sunday's matchup with a 8-4 defeat of Megan Heneghan and Kelly Chui. Mustang sophomores Gabby Gatewood and Jen Cornea then topped the UC Davis duo of Layla Sanders and Dahra Zamudio at No. 2, 8-7, before fellow Cal Poly sophomores Kathryn Webb and Ane McPike bested Nicole Koehly and Ellie Edles at No. 3, 8-6.

In singles action, Heneghan returned to top Lee at No. 1, 6-3, 6-1, before Zamudio recovered to hand Cornea a 7-5, 6-7, 6-3 loss at No. 2. Cal Poly produced victories at No. 3 from Davis (7-5, 6-3) against Chui and No. 5 from Webb (6-4, 6-2) against Koehly. The Mustangs, however, saw Gatewood fall at No. 4 against Lauren Curry (6-3, 6-3), before McPike suffered a 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 loss against Sanders at No. 6.

The Mustangs return to action when visiting Tucson, Ariz., to face host and 33rd-ranked Arizona (Feb. 18) before squaring off against North Texas (Feb. 19).
