Hawaii blanks Poly women’s tennis

The Mustangs dropped the doubles point and lost the first three singles matches to fall 4-0 at home against Hawaii.

Cal Poly (3-8, 0-4 Big West) led all three of the remaining matches, but Hawaii (9-7, 4-1) had already clinched the victory.

Jennifer Cornea, the No. 1 singles player for the Mustangs, dropped her first set 6-3 but came back to win the second 6-1. However, Cindy Nguyen took the third set in a tiebreaker, 7-6.
