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 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.

For ticket information, call 757-683-4444.

Members of the teams should contact Annette Chester at (757) 683-3401 no later than Feb. 15 to confirm your attendance at this historic event. For flight arrangements, please call or email the following: (888) 627-8000 or e-mail kmason@citravel.com.
