APSU Sports: Women’s Volleyball

Austin Peay State University Lady GovsMurfreesboro, TN – In what proved to be a very offense-minded match, late miscues cost Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team as they dropped a three-set decision to Missouri (19-25, 22-25, 21-25), Friday afternoon, at the Murphy Center.

Austin Peay (1-4) recovered from its offensive doldrums suffered in the day’s first match, posting 39 kills and a .242 attack percentage against Missouri. The Lady Govs offense was particularly potent in the first two sets, posting 14 and 16 kills respectively, but still suffered narrow losses to a Tigers squad that was receiving votes in this week’s AVCA national poll.
