APSU Women’s Volleyball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team will play at No. 8 Illinois, Friday, in Champaign, IL, during the opening round of the 2010 NCAA Volleyball Championship, as announced by the NCAA, Sunday, on ESPNews.

Not only will this be the Lady Govs first trip to the NCAA tournament, it as well will be the first for head coach Haley Janicek, who might be the youngest head coach in the NCAA at only 23-years-old.

A former All-Western Athletic Conference player at the University of Idaho, Janicek joined the Austin Peay staff as an assistant under then-head coach Mike Johnson, in 2009, following her husband’s transfer to the 101st Airborne Division. When Johnson departed, the program opted to promote Janicek to lead the program in a move that has paid off.

Daily Devotional from Brother Shepherd

 

Jesus ChristThis morning I was reading in the book of John in the 14th chapter and I was reading verses 15-21. They read, “If you love me, obey me; and I will ask the Father and he will give you another Comforter, and he will never leave you.

17 He is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit who leads into all truth. The world at large cannot receive him, for it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you do, for he lives with you now and some day shall be in you.

18 No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm-I will come to you.

19 In just a little while I will be gone from the world, but I will still be present with you. For I will live again and you will too. «Read the rest of this article»
