RICHMOND, Ky. - Austin Peay State University women's tennis fell 6-1 at league leader Eastern Kentucky, Saturday, allowing the Colonels to clinch the 2012 Ohio Valley Conference regular-season championships.

Freshman Alison Carre earned Austin Peay's only singles win, at No. 3, to remain perfect against OVC opponents. Carre improved to 8-0 in league play, having now won seven straight matches.

Perhaps the most surprising result came at No. 1 singles, where the seemingly flawless Vanja Tomic lost for the first time in 17 matches. It was only fitting the loss came to EKU's Amandine Faouzi, who improved to 7-1 in league play. For Tomic, it was only her second career OVC loss - both of which coming against Eastern Kentucky.

Austin Peay's only doubles win came at No. 2, from sophomore Andra Cornea and freshman Ornella Di Salvo.

The Lady Govs are slated to wrap up OVC play with a 1 p.m., Sunday match at Morehead State.
