Dunkle Named Big West Women’s Tennis Athlete of the Week

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — After going a combined 4-0 to help the Cal Poly women's tennis team pick up two wins over the weekend to remain undefeated, freshman Delanie Dunkle has been named the Big West Women's Tennis Athlete of the Week.

Dunkle, who was named the Mechanics Bank Cal Poly Student-Athlete of the Week earlier this week, won both of her singles and doubles matches as the Mustangs beat San Jose State 4-0 on Saturday before doing the same on Sunday as Cal Poly shutout Sacramento State, 7-0.

In the win over the Spartans, Dunkle and fellow freshman Melissa LaMette clinched the doubles point for the Mustangs with a 6-2 win from the No. 2 spot. She later won her singles match from the No. 3 spot in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4.

Against Sacramento State, she and LaMette clinched the doubles point again with a 6-4 win from the No. 2 spot. They are now a team-best 4-0 as a pair to start the season. Later on in singles, she won her match in straight sets 6-3, 6-2, at the No. 3 spot. In singles, Dunkle is a team-best 5-0 to begin her Cal Poly career.

At 5-0, Cal Poly is off to its best start in a decade. The Mustangs go on the road this weekend for a pair of matches against Point Loma and San Diego State.
