Cal Poly Men’s Tennis Hosting Nevada Friday Seeking Fourth Straight Win

Cal Poly Men’s Tennis Hosting Nevada Friday Seeking Fourth Straight Win
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Coming off its most impressive win of the season last weekend against No. 50 Utah, the Cal Poly men's tennis program will look to extend its three-match winning streak Friday when it hosts Nevada in the final match of its five-match home stand.

Match time is set for 10 a.m. from Mustang Tennis Complex and admission is free to everyone.

The Mustangs (6-5) took down the Utes 5-2 last Saturday, the first home win over a PAC-12 opponent under seventh year head coach Nick Carless. Before that, Cal Poly beat UNLV and Denver to start this current winning streak.

The Mustangs have been led in singles by three guys who are all tied for the most wins with seven each. Sophomore Alex Stater is 7-3 and has won his last four matches at No. 4 singles, junior Antoine Noel is 7-2 and has won his last three at the No. 2 spot, and freshman Gary Vardanyan is 7-1, suffering his first loss of the season last weekend.

In doubles, Noel and Vardanyan have led the way for Cal Poly at 3-1, winning their past three matches.

The Wolfpack (6-2) are winners of their last three, having beat Saint Mary's twice and UC Davis during that span. They have been led in singles by Jonathan Aremon and Daniel Dudockin, both of whom are 5-1. In doubles, the team is spearheaded by Julien Evrard and Kostya Nesterenko who are 4-2 at the No. 1 position.

Following Friday's match, the Mustangs hit the road for a match at New Mexico Sunday at noon.
