Norfolk, Va. - The Old Dominion University men's tennis team opened its spring campaign on Sunday with a history making tripleheader sweep. Playing three dual matches in the same day for the first time ever, the Monarchs defeated the College of Charleston 5-2, George Washington 6-1 and Norfolk State 7-0.

Winning all but one doubles match, the Monarchs earned the doubles point in each contest. Aleksandr Seleznev and Eidy Igarashi finished a perfect 3-0 at No. 1 doubles, while at No. 2 doubles the duo of Rodrigo Souza and Tobias Fanselow also posted a perfect 3-0 mark.

In singles play Seleznev finished 2-0 at the No. 1 singles position, but three other Monarchs posted 3-0 marks on the day. Yakov Diskin, Souza and Fanselow all earned three straight set victories as they competed at several different singles positions throughout the day.
