SKILLMAN, N.J. - Old Dominion University men's tennis faced a pair of top-55 opponents this past weekend and fell five spots in the national poll to No. 60, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced on Tuesday.
Old Dominion (11-5) fell in a hard-fought 4-3 match to current No. 51 Yale and dropped a 5-0 decision to current No. 52 Virginia Tech while besting Illinois State, 7-0 last Friday.
Prior to the week, the Monarchs had won six-straight matches.
ODU is led by sophomore Carlos Lopez Villa, who is 15-1 on the season and No. 120 in the country. Lopez Villa has defeated a pair of ranked foes on the year and has twice been named Conference USA men's tennis Athlete of the Week.
ODU is back in action on Saturday, March 31 when they face Delaware.
