BYU falls 4-0 to Cal Poly in two match road trip

Alex vs Grand Canyon

SAN LUIS OBISPO Calif. – In a well fought match, BYU men’s tennis falls 4-0 to Cal Poly at the Mustang Tennis Complex on Saturday.

“After a slow start in extremely windy conditions, we fought back hard to give ourselves a chance to win,” said head coach Dave Porter. “I’m proud of the way everyone fought today.  We left battling and now have some time to heal and get ready for a home match after a month on the road.”

With a slow start for the Cougars, Jack Barnett and Tennyson Whiting fell 6-2 to their Mustang opponents. Doubles duo Matheus Leite and Mateo Vereau finished second falling 6-3 to give the Mustangs the doubles point.

No. 2 doubles went unfinished.

The Mustangs leading 1-0, both junior Vereau and sophomore Alex Lin dropped matches to give Cal Poly a 3-0 lead.

Down by three, BYU took No. 1, 2, 4, and 6 singles to three sets. The Cougars rallied at No. 1 and 2 singles, both taking the first set to tiebreakers. In a close match at No. 4 singles, Dominik Jakovljevic came out on top in the first set 6-3, losing the second 6-4.

Wally Thayne at No. 1, fell 7-6 (6) in the first set, but came back strong in the second, taking the set 6-4. At No. 2 singles, senior Leite took the second set, dominating at 6-2, but fell in the third to give Cal Poly the 4-0 win.

The Cougars will have a week off before facing University at Idaho at home on Wednesday, March 16.
