San Marcos dropped a 12-6 non-league tennis match to San Luis Obispo on Wednesday.
Daniel Newton and Dominik Stefanov both went 2-1 on the day in singles, and the doubles team of Dan Coulson and James Wimbish battled back in their third set to win 7-5 and finish with a pair of wins.
“Dan and James battled all day and found a way to win after being down 5-3 in their final set,” said coach Jarrod Bradley. “It’s tough to remain enthusiastic on the road in the last round but they found a way to come up with big shots when it counted.”
The Royals play at Dos Pueblos on Thursday.
