About the Dayton Flyers
The Flyers (4-9) are coming down for a Middle Tennessee tour, as they will play the Govs, Belmont, and Lipscomb in three consecutive days.
Dayton has not had the best start to its season, including a dismal 0-7 road record. The Flyers have played two common opponents in IUPUI and Western Kentucky, losing both matches. The Govs beat both the Jaguars and the Hilltoppers by a 7-0 margin.
Last season, the Govs fell on the road at Dayton by a 4-3 scoreline. However, in that match, the Govs only had five healthy players and had to forfeit No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles. Additionally, the Flyers lost two of their top three singles players from a year ago.
As of now, the match will be played outside, but stay tuned to @AustinPeayWTN for all news and updates.
