Season ends for Lady Govs tennis with loss to JSU

 

APSU Women’s Tennis

Austin Peay State University GovernorsPaducah, KY – A challenging season came to an end when Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team dropped a 4-0 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament semifinal match to Jacksonville State, Saturday, at the Larry J. Heflin Tennis Complex.

Entering the season as defending champions placed lofty expectations on a Lady Govs team that was comprised of two returning starters and four freshmen to fill out the lineup. It was lack of depth that led to its undoing as a late-season ankle injury to freshman Rachel Margolies dismantled an already disjointed lineup just prior to the OVC Tournament.

Donation Challenge for Buddy

 

Humane Society of Clarksville – Montgomery County (HSCMC)Clarksville, TN – Hello Friends! The picture below was taken the day the Humane Society of Clarksville-Montgomery County came to my aid… I was a scrawny puppy with a broken leg. Who would want me, right? I was battered and broken, but my new friends were on a mission to show me that my life had far more value than I had been shown in my short 6 months of life.

I immediately fell in love with my foster mom that day at the Humane Society office and climbed right into her lap. She worked tirelessly over the last few months getting me back and forth to weekly vet appointments, helping me potty during those early days with the cast, and trying to keep me as still as possible when my wiggly butt just wanted to play-play-play… cast or no cast!

New APSU Scholarship Honors Legacy of Houston County Educator O.S. Uffelman

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – On a lazy spring afternoon in 1965, Sandra Baggett and her future husband, L.C. “Doc” Baggett, were out fishing in Houston County when they ran into the high school’s basketball coach – O.S. Uffelman.

It was an awkward encounter. L.C., after graduating high school, attended only one year of college at Austin Peay State University, before dropping out to serve in the Army. Ever since he’d returned to Houston County, Uffelman had been bugging him to go back and get his degree. That afternoon wasn’t any different.

“Mr. (Uffelman) said, ‘Doc, when are going back to school,’” Sandra recalled.
