Extending the team's win streak to seven, the program's longest since 2005, the Princeton men's tennis team won at Cal Poly 4-3 Saturday evening in the first of three matches in California over spring break.

It was Princeton's sixth match against a fellow ITA-ranked opponent this season and third win among those matches. The Tigers lost to Cal Poly 6-1 a year ago. Princeton entered this match ranked 56th in the nation while Cal Poly was 45th.

"We're very pleased to get through today with a win against a very good Cal Poly team," Princeton head coach Billy Pate said. "It's always a bit tricky the first match outdoors, but we handled the transition well. We'll get a couple more days of practice and be ready for Pepperdine Wednesday."

The Tigers will have their hands full with their next match, coming Wednesday at 7 p.m. Eastern, as the Waves are currently ranked No. 12 in the nation. A new ITA list will come out Tuesday.

Princeton tipped the match its way when the nationally 32nd-ranked pair of Zack McCourt and Matija Pecotic won their match 9-7 at first doubles, and singles play saw five of the 10 sets go to tiebreaks. At 2-2, wins by McCourt and Jonathan Carcione provided the last two points to clinch the match.
