Bowling Green, KY – Austin Peay State University (APSU) men’s tennis team earned its first sweep since 2020 in a 7-0 victory against Brescia, Thursday, at the Warrant County Tennis Center.
Austin Peay State University did not allow more than two games in any of its doubles matches to cruise to the match’s first point.

Sophomore Hogan Stoker and freshman Javier Tortajada rounded out the APSU Govs’ double play with their second-straight win in a victory from the No. 3 court.
The Governors also cruised in each of their six singles matches and allowed three games just a trio of times.
Minami and Becchis both won, 6-1, 6-3 from the No. 1 and No. 2 positions, respectively, while Tom Bolton earned his third-straight win, and fifth in the last six matches, with a 6-3, 6-3 victory from the No. 3 position.
Tortajada allowed just one combined game across his first two sets, while van Galen won his second match of the season from the No. 5 position. Anchoring APSU’s singles lineup, senior Thiago Nogueira earned his first singles win of the season in a 6-0, 6-1 victory from the No. 6 position.
