No. 40 ODU Extends Win Streak to Six, Downs No. 26 Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, 4-1

Box Score

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The No. 40 nationally ranked Old Dominion women's tennis team took down No. 26 Wake Forest by a 4-1 score on Sunday afternoon at the Wake Forest Tennis Center. ODU has now won its last six matches, while outscoring its opponents 34-6 during the win streak.
"This win means a lot and is very important for us. It is key for being in contention for receiving an at large bid to the NCAA Tournament," said ODU head coach Dominic Manilla. "This was a huge win for us and gives us confidence going into the rest of the year."
The Monarchs (8-4) jumped out to an early advantage after picking up doubles wins from Holly Hutchinson/Tatsiana Sasnouskaya (6-2) and Brooke Pilkington/Alexandra Viktorovich (6-2).
In singles, Viktorovich (6-3, 6-1) and No. 41 Yulia Starodubtseva (6-1, 7-6) claimed victories. Hutchinson sealed the deal on ODU's 4-1 victory after proving to be too much for No. 32 nationally ranked Anna Campana (6-4, 1-6, 6-3).
Earlier this season, Wake Forest defeated No. 13 Georgia Tech (7-0) and No. 18 UCF (4-3).
Old Dominion will return to action for its last regular season match on Saturday, April 10, when the Monarchs travel to Williamsburg, Va. for a 1 p.m. against William & Mary. Earlier this season at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center on Feb. 27, ODU defeated William & Mary, 6-1.
