At No. 1 singles, Juan Gomez pulled off the upset of the day as he defeated 36th-ranked James Meredith in straight sets. SDSU also captured a win at the No. 2 singles position as Ceban upended Vicente Joli 6-1, 6-3.
With two singles matches remaining and the Aztec holding a 3-2 advantage, Andre Feliz secured the team win as he defeated Alex Bothe at No. 5 singles to give SDSU an insurmountable 4-2 lead.
