NORFOLK, Va. - The Old Dominion men’s tennis team (11-9) fell to Drake (16-14) by a 4-3 score on Saturday afternoon inside of the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center. Saturday marked Senior Day for ODU’s Justin Herrera, Aziz Kijametovic and Samuel Perelman. Saturday also marked the last home match for Volunteer Assistant Coach John Brinkman.
“What an amazing Senior Day atmosphere first of all,” said ODU head coach Dominik Mueller. “Monarch fans packed the Folkes Stevens Tennis Center and made it a special day to remember. Unfortunately, the result wasn’t what we hoped for, but that’s what you get when you play top teams every single time. I’m sorry for the seniors today, but thankful for all they have given to ODU and this program. They have been superstars on and off the courts and we will miss them. The good news is that the season is not over, we can finish out the regular season with a win tomorrow and fly to the conference tournament with a win.”
The Monarchs will travel to Williamsburg for a 1:00 p.m. showdown at William & Mary (3-13) on Sunday, April 14 for ODU’s regular season finale.
