Dome, Bridge lead Mustangs into first place on Senior Day

Seniors Andre Dome and Jordan Bridge celebrated Senior Day and their final home match by leading the Cal Poly men's tennis team to a 4-3 win over the University of Hawaii. The victory on the Mustang Courts moved the 65th ranked Mustangs into sole possesion of first place in the conference standings with a 4-1 Big West record and 12-8 mark overall. UH dropped to 6-12 and 3-2 in Big West action.

Play opened in dominating fashion with the Mustangs winning all three doubles matches and securing the doubles point. Dome and Bridge won at the number one spot 8-1. Juniors Marco Comuzzo and Matt Thomson defeated Nils Schuhmann and Carter Lam, 8-2, on the second court while Naveen Beasley and Gannon Daynes took care of Jared Spiker and David Schuster, 8-4, on the third court.

Dome, ranked 25th in the nation, dominated Spiker on the first court in singles play, 6-0 and 6-0. The Arroyo Grande High graduate is the reigning Big West Player of the Year.

Thomson put the Mustangs up 3-0 with a 6-3, 6-1, win over Danilo Casanova on the sixth court. UH finally got on the board with a 6-2, 6-3, win on the fourth court when Chas Okamoto defeated Derek Klein and took and closed the match 3-2 lead when Naveen Beasley was forced to retire on the fifth court. Bridge got the Mustangs back on track and closed out the win for the team with a three-set win, 6-3, 2-6 and 6-4, on the third court over Kovaloyov.

The Mustangs return to the court on April 20 when the team travels to UC Santa Barbara for the team's final regular season match at 1 pm. A victory would clinch at least a second-straight Big West regular season title for Nick Carless' Mustangs.
