CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Austin Peay State University swept the top four singles matches and took the doubles point to avenge a 2012 OVC Tournament loss to Eastern Kentucky, defeating the Colonels, 5-2, to open the Ohio Valley Conference slate, Saturday.

The Govs (7-2, 1-0 OVC) won their seventh straight thanks to a terrific all-around effort from the top players on head coach Ross Brown's squad. Senior Sean Bailey and junior Jasmin Ademovic destroyed Alex Alvaro and Daridge Saidi, 8-2, for a pivotal No. 1 doubles win. In singles, Ademovic's 7-5, 7-6 win over Alvaro clinched the winning point for Austin Peay.

In his first action in nearly a month, sophomore Iago Seffrin teamed up with Dimitar Ristovski for an 8-1 No. 3 doubles victory over Juanjo De La Llera and Joao Maio. Ristovski later defeated De La Llera, 6-4, 6-2, in No. 3 singles.

Sophomore Aleksas Tverijonas rounded out the wins for Austin Peay, defeating Lucas Smets, 6-4, 6-0, in No. 4 singles.

The Govs look for a conference-opening sweep when they host Morehead State, 2 p.m., Sunday, in Clarksville.
