Monarchs Sweep Spiders, 7-0
By ODU Athletics
NORFOLK, Va. – The Old Dominion men’s tennis team took down Richmond (4-6) by a 7-0 score on Sunday at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center. ODU’s match originally scheduled against Howard for Sunday afternoon was cancelled due to HU not having enough players. With the victory over the Spiders, the Monarchs improve to 6-4 on the season.
“I was very pleased with our response today,” said ODU head coach Dominik Mueller. “Our guys tried really hard to improve the things we talked about after Friday and it showed. It’s a process and we took the first step in the right direction today.”
Old Dominion is now 4-2 at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center so far this season.
Old Dominion will next hit the road for a Friday, Feb. 23 bout at Harvard in Boston, Mass. at 4:00 p.m. The Monarchs will be back in action two days later when they head to Hanover, N.H. for a match with currently undefeated Dartmouth (9-0). Old Dominion will then head home for a match against Utah on Friday, March 2, at 1:00 p.m. in the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center.
