NORFOLK, VA (Mar. 11) - Old Dominion's men's tennis team advanced to the finals of the Men's Tennis East Coast Great Eight Shootout March 11 via victories over #46 Middle Tennesse State and Arkansas Little Rock. The Monarchs will face the winner of the #34 Alabama Birmingham/#69 East Tennesse State matchup.

In a surprising upset, unranked Alabama Little Rock defeated 20th-ranked Virginia in the first round, 3-2. Meanwhile, the Monarchs, ranked #52, advanced to the second round with a victory over Middle Tennessee State, 3-1.

In another first round upset, #69 East Tennessee State knocked off #42 William and Mary, 3-2, while #34 Alabama Birmingham cruised to a 3-0 victory over #75 Brown. In second round action, the Monarchs defeated UALR, 3-2, while Virginia dropped MTSU, 3-0.

The second round matches featuring William and Mary and Brown, and UAB and East Tennessee State were delayed due to strong thunderstorms moving through the Norfolk, VA, area. Those matches have been moved to Center Court Racquet Club in Newport News, VA, an indoor facility, where they will begin later in the evening.

Tomorrow's fifth and seventh-place matches will be at the Old Dominion Tennis Center at 9 am, followed by the first and third-place matches at 12 pm. Old Dominion will meet the winner of the UAB/East Tennessee State match in the championship finals.
