APSU Sports Information: APSU Volleyball

Austin Peay State University Lady GovsClarksville, TN – For the second consecutive match, Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team went to five sets, but saw its two-match win streak stopped by Southeast Missouri (25-16, 31-33, 25-23, 16-25, 15-9), Friday night, in Ohio Valley Conference action at the Dunn Center.

Austin Peay (4-15, 2-6 OVC) continued to suffer from offensive inconsistency, winning its two sets when posting a .250 attack percentage but losing each of its three sets while being held below a .200 attack percentage.
