NORFOLK, Va. -- ODU got wins from three players at the 2009 ITA/Wilson Men's Atlantic Regional Championships today, and a fourth advanced with a first round bye. ODU also saw Yakov Diskin and Krzysztof Muzalewski advance to the round of 16 in doubles action on Thursday.

Diskin and Muzalewski earned a first round with over Virginia Tech's Tripimir Kujundvic and Jon Pine by a final score of 8-5. Then, in a 5:00 p.m. matchup against Navy's Owen Bullard and Eddie Konrad, the Monarch tandem won an 8-4 match. Diskin and Muzalewski are set to play in the Round of 16 against the top-seeded pairing from the University of Virginia, Houston Barrick and Sanam Singh. Barrick and Sing narrowly escaped an upset in the second round as Temple's Filip Rams and Kacper Rams stretched the Cavaliers to a 9-8 (5) final.
