San Diego, CA - The Bulldogs (4-6) fell to San Diego State University (6-6) 5-2 Monday in San Diego. Junior Rory Green and freshman Connor Dawson won their matches for the Bulldogs in the loss to the Aztecs.
Returning from a back injury that kept him out of Yale's last match, Green came up with a 7-6, 6-1 victory at No. 4 singles. Connor Dawson continued his recent success by rolling to a 6-3, 7-6 victory over Robert Sabo at No. 6 singles.
Yale was able to also come up with a victory at No. 2 doubles, but it was not enough as the Bulldogs still lost the other two doubles matches and the doubles point. Sophomores Jeff Dawson and Josh Lederman defeated Anthony Gomez and Achim Ceban at No. 2 doubles 8-4.
The Bulldogs play No. 75 University of San Diego Friday to conclude their spring trip to San Diego.
