Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team, still in search of its first Ohio Valley Conference victory, dropped a 5-0 decision to Eastern Kentucky, Saturday, at the Austin Peay Indoor Tennis Center.
As a result of cold weather and time constraints moving the match indoors, singles matches were played first and doubles matches were bypassed because EKU clinched the match victory in singles action.
