Norfolk, Va. – The Old Dominion University’s women’s tennis team improved to 16-4 on the season with a 4-3 victory over the visiting Spiders of Richmond Wednesday afternoon at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center.


The 55th ranked Lady Monarchs jumped out to a 1-0 lead after winning two of the three doubles matches to secure the point.  Nadine Fahoum and Margarita Spicin defeated Erin Clark and Ashlee Vosters 8-2 at No. 1, while the ODU duo of Marija Citic and Charleen Haarhoff edged Richmond’s Kely Tidwell and Helen Cunningham 9-8 at No. 3.


In singles action the teams won three matches apiece with ODU claiming victories at No. 1, 2 and 4.  Fahoum defeated Pamela Duran in straight sets 6-2, 6-1 at No. 1, and Haarhoff needed three sets to down Clark at No. 2 6-3, 0-6, 6-4.  Spicin’s 6-0, 7-5 straight set victory over Cunningham proved to be the decisive point in the contest, giving ODU the 4-3 win.
