Austin Peay State University Beach Volleyball sweeps Carson-Newman at Governors Beach Challenge

APSU Women's VolleyballClarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) beach volleyball team picked up its first win of the season, sweeping Carson-Newman, 5-0, in the opening match of the Governors Beach Challenge, Friday, at the Govs Beach Volleyball Complex.

Austin Peay (1-4) took the early advantage, with Caroline Waite and Erin Eisenhart picking up their first victory of the season with a three-set decision in the No. 4 match. Then it was Karli Graham and Elizabeth Wheat in the No. 5 match with a three-set victory to give the Governors a 2-0 lead over Carson-Newman (8-4).
Demi McInnis and Tegan Seyring clinched the match for Austin Peay, handily beating Carson-Newman’s Jenny Ille and Morgan Siwiec in two sets to take a 3-0 advantage. 
With the match already decided, Marlayna Bullington and Kelsey Mead picked up their first win of the season with a workmanlike two-set victory in the No. 1 match. With just the No. 2 match left on the sand, Brooke Moore and Mikayla Powell completed the Govs’ sweep of Carson-Newman with a two-set win. 

Austin Peay State University was slated to wrap up the first day of the Governors Beach Challenge with a 3:30pm match against UT Martin, but that match was called off due to darkness. A decision on when, or if, the match between the Govs and Skyhawks will be rescheduled will be made at a later time. 

The Governors are currently scheduled to play an 11:30am match against Chattanooga and a 2:30pm match against Central Arkansas on the second day of the Governors Beach Challenge, Saturday.
