Podvinski Named C-USA Athlete of the Month
By ODU Athletics
NORFOLK, Va. - Tomislav Podvinski (Zagreb, Croatia), a redshirt senior on the Old Dominion men’s tennis team, was named the Conference USA Athlete of the Month, as announced and voted on by league officials on Tuesday afternoon.
In his first event as a Monarch, Podvinski went a perfect 3-0 in singles action, winning all three matches in straight sets. He also went 2-1 in doubles. Podvinski did all this against stiff competition, playing against Virginia, Penn State and Columbia; all three schools made the NCAA Tournament a season ago. His doubles victory over Penn State went down as a nationally ranked win over the No. 60 ranked tandem in the land (per ITA).
