Mustang Women’s Tennis Team Falls in Spring Dual Opener at USF

SAN FRANCISCO – Junior Danè Joubert (right) and freshman Molly Reed prevailed in doubles, but their 6-4 triumph marked the Cal Poly women's tennis team's only victory on Saturday afternoon as the Mustangs opened their 20-match spring dual schedule with a 4-0 loss to San Francisco at the Olympic Club.

Competing at the No. 2 position, Joubert and Reed – making their dual match debuts for Cal Poly – triumphed against San Francisco's Milica Hadzi-Tanovic and Ines Teixeira.

At No. 1, Cal Poly sophomores Emily Gibbens and Louise Oxnevad fell to San Francisco's Marina Nikolic and Andrea Ka (6-0) and, at No. 3, Mustang senior Hannah Stone and freshman Zoe Oedekerk were edged by Thyra Taune and Genevieve McCloskey, 7-6(7).

The Dons then produced three singles victories to capture the match. At No. 1, Ka bested Gibbens (6-0, 6-2) while, at No. 2, Taune got past Oxnevad (6-0, 6-1). McCloskey closed San Francisco's win with a 6-2, 6-0 victory at No. 5 versus Joubert.

With the match in San Francisco's hand, Saturday's remaining singles bouts were called. Stone was drawn at No. 3 versus Nikolic (6-2, 5-6) while, at No. 4 Reed was trailing Hadzi-Tanovic (6-2, 4-2). At No. 6, Oedekerk and Teixeira remained split (6-2, 2-3).
