NORFOLK, VA -- The Old Dominion women's tennis team was defeated this weekend by nationally ranked Miami, 7-0, and edged by Temple, 4-3, in non-conference play. The Lady Monarchs fall to 6-11 on the season and will return to play against Richmond on Tuesday.

The Hurricanes, ranked 19th in the ITA Poll, defeated the Lady Monarchs 7-0. At No. 1 singles, Miami's #73 Melissa Applebaum defeated #18 Nataly Cahana in three sets, 6-7, 7-6, 6-2. Freshmen Coralie Herrmann and Verena Munzinger were also able to push their matches to three set decisions. Herrmann, playing at No. 4 singles, took the first set 6-7 against Staci Stevens, but fell in the following sets, 6-0, 6-2. Munzinger, moving up to No. 5 singles, edged Sihem Bennacer in the first set, 4-6, but dropped a 6-0, 6-1 verdict in the second and third set.

The Lady Monarchs nearly defeated the Temple Owls falling 4-3 having to default No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles due to injury.

Junior Nataly Cahana and freshman Coarlie Herrmann and Verena Munzinger all picked up wins in singles play. Cahana rebounded with a 6-2, 6-2 match at No. 1 singles over Temple's Dana Penic. Herrmann picked up a 6-1, 6-2 win at No. 4 singles over the Owl's Rene Deyzel, 6-1, 6-1, while Munzinger played to a 6-0, 6-4 victory at No. 5 singles against Lauren Verrall.

Temple took the doubles point due to Old Dominion's default at No. 3 doubles. Nataly Cahana and Kerstin Endlich teamed up for the Lady Monarch victory taking home a 8-3 win over Danira Penic and Ana Maslesa.

The Lady Monarchs will return to action this week against former CAA rival Richmond on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m.
