Charleston, IL – For 12 minutes Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team kept pace with Ohio Valley Conference leading Eastern Illinois, but it was the final 28 minutes that proved its demise en route to an 80-46 loss, Saturday night, at Lantz Arena.
Austin Peay (5-15, 2-5 OVC) led 26-22 after Nicole Olszewski’s three pointer. At that point, the Lady Govs were shooting 47.8 percent (11-of-23) from the floor and had committed just two turnovers.
Perhaps the most impressive performances came from junior Chantelle Grey and senior Tanesha Campbell. Grey finished second in the 800-meter run at 2:11.09, she also set a personal record in the 400-meter run at 57.26. Her 800m time is tops in the OVC and in the top-10 nationally, while her 400m mark is fourth-best in the league.«Read the rest of this article»

Fort Campbell, KY – “You’ve found in one another, a bond, that exists only in combat, among brothers,” said Cpl. Joseph Liebgott, from the TV mini-series, “Band of Brothers.”
The bonds that were formed on the Kandahar battlefield created a strong connection between the Strike Soldiers, which continues today, especially with those wounded during the Afghanistan surge, which are now healing in other units.
The 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), maintain the bond with their wounded warriors and held its wounded warrior lunch at the Strike Dining Facility, January 12th, where the wounded and Strike Soldiers ate together, reconnected with their units and confirmed they are still a part of the Strike family.
