The Cal Poly men’s tennis team came away with a second victory over a top-60 team this week when the Mustangs topped San Francisco 4-2 on Sunday in Pebble Beach.
Though Cal Poly (8-2) lost the doubles point for the second straight match, the doubles team of Andre Dome and Alexander Sonneson — ranked 41st in the country — improved to 7-1 in duals with an 8-2 win over William Schumacher and Germain Bahri at the No. 1 spot.
Dome (9-1), a top-100 singles player, Brian McPhee, Marco Comuzzo and Sebastian Bell all went on to earn singles victories, and Sonneson’s matchup against Schumacher was unfinished because of weather delays.
The Dons and Fresno State, which Cal Poly outlasted 4-3 on Saturday, are both ranked below Cal Poly, which was 49th in the latest poll.
The Mustangs host Eastern Washington on Saturday and will make up their rain-canceled Big West match with No. 34 UC Irvine at noon on April 23 on Mustang Courts.

Steven Fischback’s second game back in Baggett Stadium did not go as planned and the Lions (11-6) earned a split of the four-game nonconference series with the Mustangs (6-8).
Cal Poly left the bases loaded in each of the first three innings as Fischback (1-1) was tagged with his first loss of the season a week after earning his first victory since 2008.
J.J. Thompson led the Mustangs with a double and a two-run home run, and Evan Busby doubled to extend his hitting streak to eight games.
