TEMPE, Ariz. - The Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced the men's Division I regional award winners, in which Old Dominion's Adam Moundir (Luzern, Switzerland) was named the Player to Watch for the entire Atlantic Region.
Moundir became the first ODU male player to qualify for the NCAA Singles Tournament since 2009, when Alex Seleznev accomplished the feat. The 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Championships will be conducted May 24-29 at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia.
Moundir, who is the back-to-back Conference USA Player of the Year, posted a 17-4 dual match record, with all of the matches coming at the No. 1 position. In April, Moundir was one of just six student-athletes to be named to the 2017 InTouch Credit Union C-USA Men's Tennis All-Academic Team.
