APSU men’s and women’s tennis played Belmont University Friday, April 3. Due to inclement weather, play was moved inside, and the doubles matches were bypassed.
The men won 4-1, keeping the Govs undefeated in conference play. The first match was won by Belmont’s Marko Lovrinovic in three hard-fought sets, but APSU won the next four matches to lock up a victory. Belmont fought hard, taking two matches to three sets, but APSU battled back and pulled out the win.
The Lady Govs, however, could not win their contest. APSU lost 2-4, dropping to 0-8 in conference play.
The first match was won by APSU’s Ornella Di Salvo in two sets, but Belmont responded, winning the next two matches also in two sets.
The score was 2-1 going into the fourth match, where APSU’s Brittney Covington tied it up at 2-2.
However, APSU dropped the last two matches, both in two sets, to take the loss. With the season in full force, the Lady Govs have to start winning if they are going to make a run at the OVC tournament.
