This week, the top headlines includes newcomers Belmont. Belmont is sending a tennis player to the U.S. Open. That's a pretty big deal, even if you think tennis is boring, like I do.
Other news includes Eastern Illinois, a team we don't hear about much in the athletic world. This week, they get an athletic award, but only kind of, it's just that they have smart swimmers.

Come back next Saturday, when I will bring you more OVC news. You may not see your school on this every week, so make sure your schools athletics department does something worthy of reporting. If not, I'm not going to give you a mention in the OVC Roundup. Just ask, Tennessee State and Morehead State. They didn't get a mention this week, maybe next time. Until next time, keep it classy OVC fans.
