NORFOLK, Va. -- The Lady Monarchs (14-9, 3-3) suffered a 6-1 setback to the College of William & Mary in ODU's final match of the 2009-10 regular season. They will now prepare to host the 2010 CAA Tournament set to begin on April 15.
The lone win of the day for Old Dominion came from a familiar source, in 21st ranked Nadine Fahoum at No. 1 singles. She fell in the second set, 2-6, but bounced back for a 6-3 win in the third for the victory. She improves to 36-5 overall this season with a win over the CAA Player of the Week, Ragini Acharya.
Fahoum also paired with Diana Ivanova for a win at No. 1 doubles, but William & Mary would sweep the second and third positions to secure the doubles point. Ivanova stretched her singles opponent, Nina Vulovich, to a third set at No. 4 singles, as did rookie Juliana Pires at No. 5.
The Lady Monarchs conclude the season with a 14-9 mark overall and a .500 record in CAA play, going 3-3 against league opponents. The team will host the 2010 CAA Tournament starting April 15 at the Folkes-Stevens Indoor Tennis Center on the campus of ODU.
