Murray State wraps up OVC championship with win against Tech

Murray, Ky. -- The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles dropped their Ohio Valley Conference finale Sunday at Murray State, 4-0. The win gave the Racers the outright OVC regular season championship, and a first-round bye in the conference tournament, which they will host on Nov. 7 and 9.

The Golden Eagles, meanwhile, are awaiting final results from around the league to find out their tournament fate.

Tech (4-13-1, 3-4-1) was alone in fifth place in the OVC standings heading into the final day of league play, with Jacksonville State and Eastern Illinois within striking distance close behind. A loss or tie by either team would ensure Tech a spot in the OVC tournament.

The Golden Eagles wrap up the 2008 regular season with a non-conference game against Lipscomb on Wednesday, Oct. 29. The opening round of the OVC tournament is Nov. 4.
