Wilmington, N.C. – The Seahawks of UNC Wilmington got their first ever victory over Old Dominion on Saturday with a 5-2 upset of the 69th ranked Monarchs at the UNCW Tennis Complex.  The Seahawks improved to 7-3, 1-0 in the CAA, while the Monarchs fell to 13-8, 2-1 in league play.


The Monarchs secured the doubles point with an 8-3 win at No. 1 and an 8-5 victory at No. 2.  However, the rest of the day wasn’t as successful for ODU as the Monarchs managed to win just one singles match.
