At the No. 4 spot, redshirt sophomore Fernando Fonseca completed a three set comeback over Miles Dabic 1-6, 6-4, 6-2. 

To increase the lead even more, redshirt junior Gary Vardanyan won the No. 6 spot over Tom Ciszewski,  his fourth singles match win. Vardanyan’s victory helped the Mustangs reach the final score of 5-2. 

Cal Poly is now set to play in Arizona in a three-day tournament hosted by Arizona State University from Friday, Feb. 25 through Sunday, Feb. 27.
