NORFOLK, Va. -- The fourth-seeded Lady Monarchs were eliminated by top-seeded VCU in the semifinals of the CAA Tournament on Saturday, falling to 15-10 overall this season.

The 24th ranked Rams jumped to a 1-0 lead when they earned victories at the top two positions, including a victory over ODU's Nadine Fahoum and Marija Citic at No. 1, 8-4.

In singles play, Fahoum and junior Joanna Dobrowolska each jumped out to leads in their matches, winning the first set. VCU, though, would get straight set victories at No. 5 and 6, followed by another at No. 3 to seal the win.

The 4-0 win advances VCU to Sunday's championship match against William & Mary.
