DAVIS, Calif. - Cal Poly Pomona captured four six singles as it rallied from a 2-1 deficit following doubles to defeat UC Davis, 5-4, in a California Collegiate Athletic Association women's tennis match Saturday afternoon at Hickey Courts.

With the loss the Aggies see its four-match winning streak come to an end and fall to 4-3 on the season.

UC Davis led early as it captured two of three doubles points. Ally Muller and Gretchen Schantz teamed up at No.2 to defeat Dehlia Feliz and Michelle Rabinovich, 8-6. Jennifer Fong and Christy Battig earned the Aggies second point with a 9-7 win over Katrina Holmberg and Sara Jex, 9-7, at No.3

In singles play, the Broncos came out strong, taking wins at the top four spots to clinch the match. The Aggies captured wins as Fong defeated Holmberg in three sets at No.5 and Kerri Roemer took a straight-set win over Jennifer Burggraf at No.6.

"It was a heck of a match," said Aggie Head Coach Bill Maze. "Every doubles match was close, as were the singles. Our players gave everything they had and it was a fun match to watch. Results-wise it was tough, but we gave it a very good effort."

The Aggies will next be in action on Sunday when they host the UC San Diego at Hickey Courts. Matchtime is set for 11am.
