For the third and final game of a season-opening three-game road trip, the Governors made the quick trip down I-24 to take on Lipscomb.

In doubles action, Lipscomb won the No. 2 and No. 3 matchups to claim the doubles point before the No. 1 matchup could finish. Anton Damberg and Julius Gold dropped their match on the No. 2 line, while Hunter Sanders made his 2019-20 season debut alongside Oliver Andersson, dropping the No. 3 doubles match. Christian Edison and Jacob Lorino were trailing, 4-3, when the No. 1 doubles match was called.

In singles play, Edison was once again played as Austin Peay State University’s No. 1. Edison won the second set of the match, but dropped the point to the Bisons’ No. 1. Damberg, Gold, Andersson, and Lorino played as the Govs No.2, 3, 4, and 5 for the third straight match, but the all came up short in singles play against Lipscomb.

The final singles match for the Govs featured Sanders playing as the No. 6 and falling in his spring season singles debut.

Saturday, the Governors welcomed the Mocs of Chattanooga to Clarksville. In doubles play, the APSU Govs rolled out the exact same lineup as they did against Lipscomb, only to find the same result – dropping all three matches.
