App State Women’s Tennis Swept by 32nd Ranked Old Dominion

App State Tennis concluded its regular season Saturday with a 7-0 loss at No. 32 Old Dominion, which claimed the Sun Belt regular-season championship with a 10-0 record in its first year in the league.

Under the direction of head coach Ashleigh Antal, the Mountaineers finished the regular season with a 12-7 overall record and 8-3 mark in league play. It’s the team’s best overall and league records since 2019 and their second-best since joining the Sun Belt in 2014. App State is tied for third in the standings entering next week’s Sun Belt Tournament (April 26-29 in Peachtree City, Ga.).

The doubles point went to the Monarchs (15-4) after No. 37 Sofia Johnson/Tatsiana Sasnouskaya defeated Savannah Dada-Mascoll/Ellie Murphy 6-2 on court one and Allison Isaacs/Alexandra Viktorovich downed Erika Dodridge/Helena Jansen 6-3 on court two.

ODU claimed all six singles matches, but it wasn’t without a fight from the Mountaineers. On court one, Jansen took the first set 6-4 from No. 31 Sasnouskaya before Sasnouskaya won the next two 6-2, 6-2. Dodridge also took her first set 6-3 over Alesya Yakubovich on court four.
