ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy women's tennis team (2-1) will play at Old Dominion (3-1) on Saturday at 1:00 PM at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center in Norfolk. Navy will be playing its first road match of the 2018 spring dual season.

Navy last competed on Saturday, Jan. 20, winning two home dual matches over St. Bonaventure (6-1) and Saint Francis U (7-0).

Senior captain Amanda Keller won at both No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles in the win over St. Bonaventure. Keller improved her career record in singles to 78-49 and to 57-28 in doubles.

Keller is tied with 2014 graduate Darien Sears for second place all-time at Navy in career singles wins (78). Sears is also second in career combined wins with 136, while Keller is one win behind in third place with 135. Erin Snook '14 is Navy's all-time leader in singles wins (90) and combined wins (151).

Keller is 10-6 this season in singles matches and has teamed with sophomore Kaylah Hodge to go 10-3 in doubles matches.

Senior Carlee Conway is tied with Keller with 10 singles wins this season (10-3). Freshman Amanda Cyr and sophomore Aimee Dervishian are both 9-2 in singles matches this season, while sophomore Emily Louie-Meadors is 9-3.

Old Dominion is coming off a 4-3 loss to Tennessee last Saturday. The Lady Vols are currently receiving votes in the ITA Top 25 poll. Old Dominion's three dual wins have come over Florida Athletic (5-2), Morgan State (7-0) and Virginia (5-2).

 

 

The Monarchs were 11-10 overall last season and fell to North Texas in the Conference USA Tournament Quarterfinals.
