APSU Sports Information
Richmond, Ky – Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team could not overcome Eastern Kentucky in the regular season finale, falling 6-1, Friday, at the Tom Higgins Outdoor Courts.
The Govs (10-8, 6-3 OVC) knew they would be playing for seeding in next week’s Ohio Valley Conference Tournament, but the Colonels (13-8, 8-0 OVC) still were playing for an OVC regular season title, which will be decided tomorrow. The Colonels came out of the gate fast, winning easily at No. 1 and No. 3 doubles to claim the doubles point.
The singles did not start much better for the Govs, as EKU went up 2-0 with a win at No. 4 singles. However, Fabienne Schmidt easily defeated EKU’s Viktorija Demcenkova (6-1, 6-4) at No. 3 singles to cut EKU’s lead to one. The Colonels responded though, reeling off four straight wins to win the match 6-1. Lidia Yanes Garcia had her sixteen dual-match winning streak ended, but it stands as the second longest streak in Governors history.
