February 10, 2019 (San Diego) - San Diego State women's tennis improves its record to 5-1 with Sunday’s 4-0 win over Cal Poly, the team’s second victory of the weekend.
The Scarlet and Black made quick work of the Mustangs on Sunday, setting the tone with two fast wins in doubles to claim the first point. Sophomore Nnena Nadozie and freshman Alicia Melosch topped Cal Poly’s Kim Bhunu and Emily Ackerman 6-3 in the second seed, while senior Jenny Moinard and freshman Shakhnoza Khatamova defeated Emily Louie-Meadors and MacKenzie Worsnop 6-3 in the No. 1 seed to get to 1-0 in the dual.
Singles play moved just as swift with three two-set wins by the Aztecs to clinch the match with the Mustangs. First to put away her opponent was freshman Abbie Mulbarger, who topped Cal Poly’s Grace Olyphant 6-1, 6-3 in the fifth seed. Khatamova also got her chance to count a singles victory with her 6-1, 6-3 finish over Bhunu in the No. 2 slot, but it was freshman Agustina Rimoldi Godoy clinched her team’s win with a 6-3, 6-4 triumph over Ackerman in the sixth seed.
SDSU won its six straight doubles point in Sunday’s dual versus the Mustangs.
The Aztecs, now 5-1, continue their four-match homestand next Friday, Feb. 15 for their rescheduled dual vs. California. First serve against the Golden Bears is set for 2 p.m. at the Aztec Tennis Center.
