SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Riding a two-match winning streak, the Cal Poly women's tennis program will seek to extend that to four this weekend when it hosts both Nevada and CSUN for a weekend home stand.
The Mustangs (5-6, 1-2 BWC) will host the Wolfpack (6-4) on Saturday and the Matadors (8-3) on Sunday. Both matches start at 11 a.m. from Mustang Tennis Complex and admission is free to everyone.
Cal Poly is coming off wins over UC Riverside (March 4) and Sacramento State (March 9). In singles, the Mustangs have been led this season by junior Emily Louie-Meadors, who is 6-3 at the No. 1 spot primarily. Fellow junior Susanne Boyden is second in singles at 5-2 at the No. 2 and No. 3 positions. In doubles, the team has been led by the tandem of Boyden and sophomore Grace Olyphant, who are 5-0 at the No. 3 spot.
Nevada is coming off back-to-back road losses to San Francisco and Pacific last weekend. Earlier this season, Nevada lost to the Big West's UC Santa Barbara and Long Beach State. In singles, they have been led by Maria Tatarnikova, who is 5-2 at the No. 5 and No. 6 spot. In doubles, the Wolfpack have been led by Adriana Gergelyova and Roos vanReek, who are 6-2 as a pair, primarily at the No. 2 position.
One of the hottest teams in the conference right now, CSUN is currently riding a five-match win streak. The Matadors are coming off wins over Radford and Cal State Fullerton last week. In singles, they have had two players stand out this season. Sibel Demirbaga is 11-0 this season, splitting between the fourth, fifth and sixth positions and Ana Toboso is 10-0, primarily from the third and fourth spots. In doubles, they have been led by Toboso and Skyla Alcon, who are 5-1 at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles.
Following this weekend, the Mustangs will have one match next week. They will travel to Honolulu to face Hawai'i Saturday, March 30th.
