The No. 31 ranked Virginia women's tennis won its third consecutive match, defeating Old Dominion 5-2 on Friday afternoon. The win improves the Cavaliers' record to 4-1 on the season.
Virginia opened the match strong, taking the doubles point for a 1-0 lead. The team of Kristen James (Clifton, Va.) and Shannon Stough (Hot Springs, Ark.) won at No. 2 doubles and the team of Kyle Montgomery (Charlottesville, Va.) and Caroline Hammond (Williamsburg, Va.) won at No. 3 doubles.
In singles, the Cavaliers won four of the six matches to clinch the victory. James and Hammond also posted singles wins at No. 2 and No. 6, as did Marta and Dora Bechliwanis (Etobicoke, Ont.) at No. 4 and No. 5.
"I was pleased with our effort and felt we played an excellent match today," said Virginia assistant coach Mait DuBois. "It was good to keep our momentum going as we head into a big match on Sunday against Brown."
Virginia returns home on Sunday to host No. 67 Brown at the Boar's Head Sports Club. Time of the match is 1:00 p.m.
