APSU’s women’s tennis team took on Southeast Missouri and UT Martin on Friday, March 29, and Saturday, March 30, at home and prevailed.

The weekend puts the women at 6-10 this spring.

They won the weekend in the singles matches, winning eight of 12, four and four respectively against UTM and SEMO.

While the women swept SEMO in doubles, UTM dominated their doubles competition, winning all three matches 8-0, 8-1, and 8-4.

The two conference wins could be indicative of APSU women’s tennis coach Ross Brown’s prediction that they would work hard and get better and solidified his hopes to make the conference tournament.

“The women have been competing hard the whole season and this weekend that determination and no give attitude helped to get those wins,” Brown said, pleased with their weekend performance.

Vanessa Tavares, Jovana Karac and Andra Cornea all won against both SEMO and UTM in their singles matches.

The women will go up against Tennessee State and Belmont at the home courts this weekend on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7.
Brown said he expects his team to keep up the consistency.
