Men's Tennis Falls To UNCW, 4-3 On Senior Day


NORFOLK, Va. – The 50th-ranked Old Dominion men's tennis team closed out their home slate on Thursday afternoon falling 4-3 to 71st-ranked UNC Wilmington on Senior Day.

"We put ourselves in position again, but weren't able to find a way to close it. The positives outweigh the negatives today and I am excited for the final stretch of the season. Unfortunately we couldn't get a win for our seniors today but hopefully we can make up for it on  Saturday," said ODU Head Coach Dominik Mueller.
In doubles, the Monarchs took the team point on wins at the top two spots. Jakob Cadonau and Connor van Schalkwyk took the first win at No. 1 in a 6-1 decision over 44th-ranked Reece Falck and Harold Huens. Cosme Rolland de Ravel and Codie van Schalkwyk finished off the team point in a 6-3 win over Drew Broadstreet and Jordi Domenech.
In singles, Connor van Schalkwyk got ODU on the board with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Bekhzod Rasamatov at No. 2 for a 2-0 lead. UNCW answered with a win at No. 3, which was followed by a Codie van Schalkwylk 6-3, 6-3 win at No. 4 over Gabe Hurtado to push the ODU lead to 3-1. The Seahawks responded with wins in the last three matches, including a pair of three-set wins to take the match.
ODU heads to JMU on Saturday for a 2 p.m. start in the Royal Rivalry matchup to close out the regular season.
