Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) beach volleyball team wrapped up a perfect weekend at the Govs Beach Bash and improved to 8-0 at home this season with a 3-2 win over UT Martin, Saturday, at the Govs Beach Volleyball Complex.
Austin Peay (15-9) and UT Martin (12-6) were scheduled to play two matches on the final day of the Govs Beach Bash, but with a conference match between the two already slated for 10:30 a.m., Friday, both sides agreed not to play the second match.
The extension match was the next to go final and Austin Peay State University’s Erin Eisenhart and Jaida Clark picked up a three-set victory.
The Skyhawks were able to tie the match when Addison Conley and Kayla Carrell beat Janvier Buggs and Caroline Waite in three sets in the No. 4 match. Waite and Buggs won the first set, 21-13, but the UT Martin duo rallied to claim the point with wins in the second and third sets.
Brooke Moore and Mikayla Powell put APSU back in front when they picked up their 16th victory of the season in the No. 2 match. But the Skyhawks tied the match again when Logan Wallick and Haleigh Paulino knock off Demi McInnis and Tegan Seyring in two sets on the No. 3 line.
With the score tied 2-2 and just one match left on the sand, Austin Peay State University’s top duo of Marlayna Bullington and Kelsey Mead took care of business with a two-set win in the No. 1 match.
