Boca Raton, FL – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) beach volleyball team wrapped up play at the FAU Beach Burrow Bash, dropping a 5-0 decision to UNC Wilmington and a 5-0 decision to Florida Gulf Coast, Saturday, at the FAU Beach Volleyball Complex.
Austin Peay (0-4) was unable to get on the board in its first match of the day against UNC Wilmington (5-3). But the Governors were able to salvage a win in the extension match, with Janvier Buggs and Jaida Clark picking up a three-set win over the Seahawks’ Maddy Folks and Grace Melnick.
In the second match of the day, the Governors were shut out by future ASUN Conference opponent Florida Gulf Coast (5-3), who is receiving votes in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Collegiate Beach Volleyball Poll.
