SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – Senior Alexa Lee and junior Jen Cornea both finished as dual winners on Friday afternoon, but after securing the doubles points against Portland, the Cal Poly women's tennis program surrendered four of six singles matches and dropped a 4-3 decision against the Pilots on Mustang Courts.
