Joubert, Stone, Oedekerk Lead Cal Poly Sunday at California Winter Invite

BERKELEY – Junior Danè Joubert prevailed in singles and senior Hannah Stone and freshman Zoe Oedekerk triumphed in doubles as the Cal Poly women's tennis team completed action at the spring season-opening California Winter Invitational on Sunday at Hellman Tennis Courts and Channing Tennis Courts.

With Cal Poly facing 70th-ranked Fresno State in singles, Joubert recovered from a second-set loss to top Sofya Malysheva (FSU), 6-4, 4-6, 6-3. Cal Poly, however, fell in its remaining five singles matches as sophomore Emily Gibbens dropped a 6-0, 6-1 decision to Sophie Watts, Stone fell to Rana Sherif Ahmed (6-4, 6-1) and freshman Molly Reed was on the downside of a 6-4, 6-0 decision versus Mayar Sherif Ahmed. Oedekerk rallied to square her match versus Tanya Murtagh before suffering a 6-2, 2-6, 6-1 loss while junior Bryn Bacharach dropped a 6-3, 6-4 matchup to Anneka Watts.

In doubles play versus No. 46 Saint Mary's, Stone and Oedekerk combined to outlast Danielle Flores and Kareena Manji, 7-6 (2). Joubert and Reed, however, fell to Jana McCord and Parminder Kaur (6-1) while the Saint Mary's duo of Jamie Pawid and Mary Anne Jessup slid past Gibbens and Mustang sophomore Sayaka Tsugai (top), 7-6 (5). Bryn and Abigail Bacharach then fell to Catherine Leduc and Emma Critser, 6-2.

Cal Poly opens its 20-match dual schedule when welcoming Division III UC Santa Cruz to Mustang Courts on Sunday, Jan. 25. First serve is set for 11:30 a.m.
