No singles matches went beyond two sets as the Cal Poly women’s tennis team dominated Cal State Bakersfield 7-0 at Mustang Courts on Wednesday.

Amy Markhoff and Diane Filip slid to the No. 2 doubles spot and stayed unbeaten by routing Sara Mijwel and Ashlee Thorneycroft 8-1.

Prior to that, Maria Malec and Shannon Brady improved to 8-5 on the season while topping Kaydee Graham and Kati Lynott 8-2 and winning their first outing in the No. 1 slot.

In the third doubles competition, Brooke Pletcher teamed with Whitney Peterson and made quick work of Leslie Begley and Isabella Kasselstrand, 8-1.

Brittany Blalock (10-10), Cal Poly’s No. 1 singles player, breezed by Lynott 6-0, 6-1.

The loss kept the Roadrunners (0-12) winless.

Cal Poly (12-10) will conclude its regular season by visiting Fresno State at 11 a.m. Saturday, before heading to the Big West Conference Championships, held in Indian Wells from April 25-27.
