The Cal Poly women’s tennis program, donning their ‘Pink Day’ uniforms in honor of breast cancer awareness and in support of junior Susanne Boyden’s mother who is battling the disease, knocked off Sacramento State Saturday, 4-1 from Mustang Tennis Complex.

No doubles were played on the day due to the threat of rain. Both coaches agreed to start with singles and the doubles matches were not needed.

Junior Emily Louie-Meadors got things started for the Mustangs (5-6) with a 6-1, 6-1 victory at No. 1 singles. With the win, Louie-Meadors improves her record to a team-best 6-3 on the season.

Junior Claire Bouquet gave Cal Poly a 2-0 lead after a straight sets win at the No. 6 position, 6-2, 6-0. She boosts her record to 4-3 this season.

Boyden then followed with a 6-1, 7-6 win at No. 2 singles to put the Mustangs up 3-0. She is now 5-2 this year.

After the Hornets (0-6) won at No. 5 singles to cut the lead to 3-1, sophomore MacKenzie Worsnop clinched the win for Cal Poly with a three-set victory at the No. 3 spot, 0-6, 6-3, 7-6.

The Mustangs will have next week off before a two-match weekend homestand March 23rd and 24th against Nevada and CSUN. Both matches are scheduled to start at 11 a.m. from Mustang Tennis Complex.
