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.
