“Today showed again what a great character this team has,” said ODU head coach Dominik Mueller. “We didn’t let the loss yesterday effect us and came out ready to go from the first point. We were able to carry the energy into singles and get some nice straight set wins.”
Looking Ahead - Home Sweet Home ODU will host five straight home matches at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center, beginning with a Saturday, Feb. 10 match against Louisiana Lafayette at 1:00 p.m.
