SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The Santa Clara women's tennis fell, 6-1, to No. 75 Cal Poly at the Degheri Tennis Center Saturday afternoon. Sophomore Courtney Hull earned the Broncos lone point on the day. Hull defeated the Mustangs Steffi Wong in straight sets, 6-4, 6-0, at the No. 5 singles position.
Seeing career firsts were freshmen Kimmi Cox and Isabelle Hoy, who both saw action in today's contest. Cox partnered with sophomore Carmen Pham at the No. 3 doubles spot, where the pair were edged, 8-6, by Cal Poly's Maria Malec and Diane Filip. In singles, Hoy played at the No. 6 singles position. She fell to Filip, 6-4, 6-2.
"I am proud of the way we played," said head coach Ben Cabell. "Cal Poly is a tough nationally ranked team. They presented a good test for us and will help our young team in the development of the program."
