Season ends for Lady Govs tennis with loss to JSU

 

APSU Women’s Tennis

Austin Peay State University GovernorsPaducah, KY – A challenging season came to an end when Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team dropped a 4-0 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament semifinal match to Jacksonville State, Saturday, at the Larry J. Heflin Tennis Complex.

Entering the season as defending champions placed lofty expectations on a Lady Govs team that was comprised of two returning starters and four freshmen to fill out the lineup. It was lack of depth that led to its undoing as a late-season ankle injury to freshman Rachel Margolies dismantled an already disjointed lineup just prior to the OVC Tournament.
