Clarksville, TN – After winning its ASUN Conference opener Friday, the Austin Peay State University (APSU) women’s tennis team faces North Florida in a Sunday 9:00am match at the UNF Tennis Complex in Jacksonville Florida.
Austin Peay (10-3, 1-0 ASUN) earned a 6-1 victory at Queens in its first-ever ASUN matchup. As they have throughout their seven-match winning streak, the Govs claimed doubles point following wins from the No. 1 and No. 2 positions.
Jana Leder and Melody Hefti earned their sixth win in the last seven matches in Friday’s win against the Royals, while Denise Torrealba and Sophia Baranov improved to 7-0 on the season with their doubles-clinching win.
Austin Peay State University won its No. 2-5 singles matches, with Baranov clinching the victory with her 11th-straight victory.
Sunday’s match is the first between Austin Peay State University and North Florida (8-6, 0-1 ASUN). The Ospreys dropped a 5-2 decision to Stetson, Friday, in their ASUN opener.
North Florida has dropped back-to-back matches entering its contest with the APSU Govs after having a season-best, three-match winning streak come to an end following a 4-3 loss to South Florida, on March 11th.
The Ospreys won a share of the ASUN Regular-Season Championship last season after going 8-1 in Conference play but had its 2022 spring season come to an end following a 4-3 loss to Stetson in the tournament semifinals.
