Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team dominated from start to finish, blanking Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 7-0, in Ohio Valley Conference action, Friday.
The Govs (9-6, 5-1 OVC) were utterly dominant over the two-time reigning OVC champions. Coach Ross Brown changed his doubles lineup to reflect the health of Claudia Yanes Garcia, who moved back to No. 2 doubles with her twin sister Lidia Yanes Garcia. The duo easily disposed of SIUE’s No. 2 duo and the new team of Brittney Covington and Fabienne Schmidt easily swept aside their opponents at No. 3 doubles to claim the doubles point for the Govs.
