APSU Volleyball drops pair of matches to North Alabama

APSU Women's VolleyballFlorence, AL – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) beach volleyball team dropped a pair of matches to North Alabama, Friday, with the Governors falling 3-2 in both halves of the doubleheader at the UNA Beach Volleyball Courts.

Austin Peay State University led 2-0 in the first match of the afternoon after Elizabeth Wheat and Jamie Seward picked up a two-set win in the No. 4 match and Karli Graham and Tristin Smith won in two sets in the No. 5 match.

However, the Lions were able to beat Tegan Seyring and Erin Eisenhart on the No. 3 line and Kelsey Mead and Marlayna Bullington on the No. 1 line to even the score, 2-2. The deciding point came in the No. 2 match and UNA secured the match with a three-set victory over Chloee McDaniel and Mikayla Powell.

In the second match of the doubleheader, the APSU Govs got out front early with Eisenhart and Jenna Salyer picking up their first win as a duo in the No. 4 match. But North Alabama evened the score at 1-1 when they knocked off Graham and Smith in three sets on the No. 5 line.

The Governors and Lions split the next two matches with UNA beating Wheat and Seward on the No. 3 line before Bullington and Mead evened the score at 2-2 with a three-set win in the No. 1 matchup. The match-clinching point was once again decided on the No. 2 line and the Lions picked up their second win of the day with a two-set win over McDaniel and Powell.
