Mustang Women’s Tennis Team Dominant in Sunday Season Opener

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – The Cal Poly women's tennis team opened its spring dual match schedule in paramount fashion on Sunday afternoon as the Mustangs failed to drop a set in sweeping UC Santa Cruz at the San Luis Obispo Country Club.

Cal Poly's No. 1 doubles tandem of senior Alexa Lee and freshman Sophia Bott set the victorious tone for the Mustangs by producing an 8-3 victory against Alexandra Scotten and Laura Wade. The Mustangs then rounded off the doubles point with a pair of sweeps as junior Gabrielle Gatewood and freshman Louise Oxnevad (right) whitewashed Courtney Lymburner and Katy Collins at No. 2 while Mustang freshmen Jen Cornea and Ane McPike did the same to Suzanna Lipscomb and Monika Prokes at No. 3.

In singles action, Oxnevad topped Scotten at No. 1, 6-1, 6-4, before Cornea produced a 6-1, 6-3 victory against Wade at No. 2. Bott sidelined Lymburner at No. 3, 6-3, 6-2, before Lee – a two-time All-Big West Conference selection in both singles and doubles – swept past Collins at No. 4. Cal Poly enjoyed two additional 6-0, 6-0 triumphs to finish the day as Webb swept past Lipscomb at No. 5 before Gatewood bested Prokes at No. 6.

Cal Poly (1-0) hits the road for the first time in 2013 when squaring off against No. 47 Washington on Sunday, Jan. 20 in a match hosted by Hawai'i before facing the 54th-ranked Wahine on Jan. 21. Both matches begin at 11 a.m. PT for Cal Poly, which will face seven programs during a 21-match spring dual schedule that appeared in the Jan. 3 edition of the Campbell's ITA College Rankings.
