VA. Beach, Va. -- The Old Dominion duo of Kerstin Endlich and Fernanda Luiz captured the Flight A Doubles title, while newcomer Barbara Costa won the Flight B singles title at the Hampton Roads Collegiate Invitational over the weekend highlighting the Lady Monarchs first action of the 2004-05 year.

Endlich, a two-time All-CAA performer, and Luiz, a sophomore, won both their matches in their Flight A bracket en route to the title. The duo defeated Norfolk State's Jennifer Itonyo and Flaminia Migone, 8-0, in the semifinals and went on to defeat Rebecca Vanderelst and Kristen Veith of James Madison, 8-4, to take the title.

Costa, making her first appearance as a Lady Monarch, won four matches in her Flight B bracket to take the title.

In the quarterfinals, Costa defeated Temple's Lauren Verrall, 7-5, 6-1, to set up a showdown with teammate Barbara Kerner in the semifinals. Costa emerged with the 6-2, 6-4 win and picked up the title with a 6-1, 6-0 victory against Fiorela Valdivi.
