Sofia Johnson

NORFOLK, Va. – The 23rd-ranked Old Dominion women's tennis team finished a 2-0 home Sun Belt Conference weekend with a 4-0 win on Sunday over Southern Miss at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center.
"A great complete match today by our squad. We looked strong at all positions. I'm happy with where we are now moving into the last few weeks of the regular season," said ODU Head Coach Dominic Manilla.
In doubles, the Monarchs got a pair of wins at the one and three spots. Mya Byrd and Alexandra Viktorovitch took a 6-0 win at line three, while Tatsiana Sasnouskaya and Sofia Johnson earned a 6-2 win at the top spot for the team point.
At the midway point through the first set, a rain shower came through and moved the match inside. Once inside, the Monarchs got rolling with Sasnouskaya taking a 6-0, 6-3 win at the top spot for a 2-0 lead. Alesya Yakubovich won 6-2, 6-0 at line four to push the lead to 3-0, while Sofia Johnson got the clincher at line two with a 6-2, 6-2 win.
Old Dominion (10-4, 5-0) returns to the home courts next weekend to face Arkansas State on April 1 and ULM on April 2 both at 10 a.m.
