Before embarking to Georgia and Florida for the trip, the Govs faced off against Southern Indiana at home, defeating them for the second straight season.

As a result of his performances against USI and Kennesaw State, Almantas Ozelis was named Ohio Valley Conference Co-Tennis Player of the Week. Against USI, Ozelis teamed with Anton Damberg for a win at No. 1 doubles before sweeping away his opponent at No. 1 singles in straight sets.

Ozelis had also claimed the second set in his singles match against Kennesaw State, but it went unfinished due to the team outcome already being decided.

About the Valdosta State Blazers

The Blazers will also play their first home match of the season against the Govs. In their most recent outing, the Blazers defeated No. 18 Embry-Riddle (Fla.) by a score of 4-1 on a neutral court.
