Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team had few answers for visiting Lipscomb’s offensive onslaught, losing a  three-set decision (25-12, 25-17, 25-18), in non-conference action, Tuesday night, at the Dunn Center.

The Lady Bisons quickly showed they weren’t suffering a hangover from that experience, leading all three sets wire-to-wire.

Austin Peay (11-2) could not find its rhythm on either offense or defense. The offense was limited to just 31 kills and a season-low .147 attack percentage. Sophomore Nikki Doyle found some success, recording a team-best 10 kills, but also committed four errors and finished with a .214 attack percentage.

The Lady Govs middle blockers – seniors Jessica Mollman and Taylor Skinner – had the most successful nights on offense. Mollman finished with eight kills, one error and a .500 attack percentage while Skinner recorded six kills, an error and a .357 attack percentage.

Kaycee Green led Lipscomb with 16 kills and Meghan Hinemeyer added 14 kills. Alex Kelly, the Lady Bisons leading hitter entering the night, was called on to record just eight kills. Lipcomb finished the night with 50 kills against 10 errors to record an impressive .400 attack percentage.

Austin Peay, which saw its 10-match win streak stopped with the loss, returns to Ohio Valley Conference play when it travels to Tennessee Tech for a 7:00pm, Friday contest.
