Cal Poly senior Andre Dome's historic career will continue. The Arroyo Grande High graduate upset the 4th seed and 5th ranked player in the nation Anthony Rossi of Kentucky 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-3 in the second round of the NCAA Singles Championship in Urbana, Illinois on Thursday morning.
Dome, who's ranked 30th in the nation, won the match that started outdoors and moved indoors due to rain. He also extended his winning streak to 21 matches in a row. He is 22-2 in dual matches this season and 25-4 overall.
By advancing to the third round and a top 16 finish, Dome secures All-American status. He is the only player in Cal Poly's Division I history to qualify and win a match at the NCAA Singles Championship. The two-time Big West Conference Player of the Year defeated Juan Spir of Georgia Tech, the 50th ranked player, on Wednesday 6-3, 6-2.
Dome faces 13th ranked Evan King of Michigan in Friday's Round of 16. King knocked off 67th ranked Cameron Silverman of Elon in the second round 6-2, 6-2.
The senior lost in the first round of the NCAA Championship last year.
