Men’s Tennis Clinches Share Of Regular Season Title With 4-0 Win At JMU


HARRISONBURG, Va. – The 50th-ranked Old Dominion men's tennis team captured at least a share of the regular season title on Saturday with a 4-0 Royal Rivalry win at JMU to close out the regular season.
"I'm so happy for this group. They worked hard all year and going through a round Robin conference season is not easy. So many 4-3 matches all season in this conference and everybody is beating everybody. Going 7-1 and winning at least a share of the title is an accomplishment we should be proud of. We will enjoy this for a day and then get to work Monday for conference tournament," said ODU Head Coach Dominik Mueller.
Doubles saw the Monarchs blast out of the gates and take a win by Maxime Mareschal-Hay and Yanis Moundir at No. 3 over Edson Sanchez and Francisco Sinopoli 6-1. Moments later, Cosme Rolland de Ravel and Codie van Schalkwyk took a 6-3 win at No. 2 over Markus Giersiepen and Youssef Sadek to claim the team point.
In singles, ODU (17-7, 7-1) ripped off three matches in succession to finish the 4-0 victory. Aryan Saleh knocked off Mario Pena at No. 6, 6-1, 6-2 to start. Mareschal-Hay defeated Sinopoli at No. 5, 6-2, 6-3 and Rolland de Ravel finished it with 6-2, 6-2 win at no. 1 over Sadek.
The Monarchs are now off until Friday when the quarterfinal round is set for the 2024 Sun Belt Tournament in Rome, Georgia.
