Mueller Announces Fall and Spring Schedules
By ODU Athletics
NORFOLK, Va. – Old Dominion men’s tennis head coach Dominik Mueller announced the complete schedule for the upcoming fall and spring seasons.
“We are presenting our players with another nationally challenging schedule,” said reigning C-USA Coach of the Year, Mueller. “We are trying to find the toughest opponents possible and I believe this schedule will set the tone for another great season early on and prepare us for down the road. 14 out of our 21 opponents were nationally ranked at the end of last season, so this shows what we will be up against. We will have a young and hungry team that is excited to play against the best in the country.”
Mueller’s program climbed as high as No. 25 in the national rankings last season after taking down No. 14 Dartmouth (4-1) and No. 24 Utah (4-0). The Monarchs claimed the first conference title for the program since 1994. Old Dominion entered the NCAA Tournament with a 19-6 overall record and went a perfect 6-0 against C-USA opponents.
Old Dominion returns six players from last year’s roster: Jannik Giesse, Justin Herrera, Harrison Hunter, Aziz Kijametovic (reigning C-USA Player of the Year), Francois Musitelli and Samuel Perelman. The Monarchs added three newcomers to this year’s roster: Luca Maldoner (Innsbruck, Austria), Bradley Mittleman (Leawood, Kan.) and Oliver Tobisch (Roedermark, Germany).
