Cal Poly Outduels Cal State Fullerton for 4-2 Victory

FULLERTON – Senior Jennifer Cornea (right) and junior Hannah Stone each furthered their singles winning streaks to three successive matches as the Cal Poly women's tennis program closed its 2014 Big West Conference schedule with a 4-2 shortened victory at Cal State Fullerton on Monday morning.  

Teaming together at the No. 1 doubles position, Cornea and Stone opened Cal Poly's Monday by rolling past Cal State Fullerton's Camille De Leon and Morgan McIntosh, 8-3. The Titans evened things at the No. 2 spot with Alexis Valenzuela and Megan Sandford bettering Mustang senior Kathryn Webb and junior Mika Padmanabhan, 8-7. The Mustangs, however, clinched the doubles point at No. 3 with senior Ane McPike and freshman Emily Gibbens edging Kalika Slevcove and Melanie Abella, 8-7 (7-4).

In singles, Cornea clinched Cal Poly's triumph with a 6-3, 7-5 win at the No. 1 spot against Valenzuela. Cal Poly's other singles victories came at No. 4, with Stone topping Slevcove (6-4, 6-0), and No. 5, with Webb besting Sandford (6-1, 6-3).

In the remaining singles matchups, Gibbens fell to McIntosh at the No. 2 spot (6-3, 6-4) while Padmanabhan was on the downside at No. 3 to De Leon (6-2, 7-5).

With the match decision finalized, McPike's No. 6 singles match versus Jessica Pepa remained unfinished.

Cal Poly (6-9, 3-5) closes regular season action when hosting No. 74 Fresno State at Mustang Courts on Friday, April 18. First serve is 2 p.m.
