SACRAMENTO — Cal Poly won two of the three doubles matches, and swept singles on the way to a 7-0 victory over the Hornets in a non-conference men's tennis match at the Sacramento State Tennis Courts.
The Hornets went three sets in three of their singles matches, and dealt with a couple injuries. Dom Miller, who would have played No. 2 singles, suffered an injury during doubles play and did not play singles. The Hornets' No. 1 player, Mikus Losbergs, suffered an ankle injury during the first set of his singles match.
With the victory, Cal Poly improved to 2-0 on the young season. The Hornets, who opened the year on Friday with a 4-3 loss at Saint Mary's, dropped to 0-2. Sacramento State does not play again until Feb. 2 when it opens a three-game road trip at Minnesota.
Sacramento State's lone victory of the day came at No. 1 doubles where the tandem of Losbergs and Kasparas Zemaitelis won their doubles match at No. 1 by a 6-3 score. The Mustangs won the other two doubles matches to pick up the doubles point.
In singles play, Donal Hall (No. 4), Louis Chabut (No. 5) and Bernardo Moraes (No. 6) each went to three sets, but lost in super tiebreakers. Losbergs (No. 1), Hermont Legaspi (No. 2) and Zemaitelis (No. 3) each fell in straight sets.
Today marked the first of 12 home matches the Hornets will play this season. For the first time since the early 2000s, the Hornets will play every home match on campus at the Sacramento State Tennis Courts.
