Brentwood, TN – After picking up three overall wins last week, the Ohio Valley Conference named Austin Peay State University (APSU) senior Anton Damberg the Men’s Tennis Player of the Week, Tuesday.
In Austin Peay’s first match of the week, Damberg defeated Cumberland’s Hugues N’Goma, 6-4, 7-5 from the No. 3 position. The win was Damberg’s first of the season and capped the Govs’ 5-2 victory against the Phoenix.
After moving up to the No. 2 singles position against OCU, Damberg won his second straight-set match of the season in a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Baltazar.
After winning the award for the first time in his career, Damberg is the first Austin Peay men’s tennis player to be named OVC Player of the week since Schlossmann received the award April 14th, 2021. The Gagnef, Sweden native is the 11th player to receive the honor under head men’s tennis coach, Ross Brown.
