Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University beach volleyball returns to the court for their second-straight weekend of action.
The Govs are looking to put an end to their losing streak at the Carson-Newman Tournament where Austin Peay will face off against Lincoln Memorial, Huntingdon and the Eagles in Jefferson City.
The Governors are coming off a tough weekend at the Blazer Beach Duals, but the Govs ended on a high note after they took two pairings from the Mercer Bears, as Jenna Panning and Haley Turner won a three-set thriller 21-23, 26-24, 15-9. Kaylee Taff and Chloe Stitt dominated the fifth pairing, winning in straight sets 21-15, 21-16.
The pairings for the Govs opening match against Lincoln Memorial, Friday, will remain unchanged from Austin Peay’s 2-3 loss to Mercer last Saturday.
