ODU TO CELEBRATE LADY MONARCH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS
The Old Dominion University athletic department will celebrate two significant anniversaries on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Lady Monarchs' home season finale with James Madison at 3 p.m. at Ted Constant Convocation Center.
Twenty-five years ago, the Lady Monarchs, led by All Americans Nancy Lieberman, Inge Nissen and Anne Donovan, captured their second consecutive AIAW national crown en route to posting a 37-1 record (the 1978/79 team won the title with a 35-1 mark). Then, five years later a new group of Lady Monarchs, led by All American Medina Dixon, Tracy Claxton and freshmen All Americans Donna Harrington and Adrienne Goodson, captured the NCAA title with a victory over the University of Georgia.
The teams will also be honored at a reception preceding the game at the Kornblau Alumni Center, 49th Street and Hampton Boulevard.
The teams will be honored during the halftime ceremonies of the game, which is being broadcast on Comcast Sportsnet in the Mid-Atlantic region. Early indications are that many of the former players will be in attendance, including Lieberman, Donovan, Rhonda Rompola, Chris Critelli, Dawn Cullen, Goodson, and more.
