Clarksville, TN – Teal Young knocked down five 3s on his way to a game-high 23 points, Tuesday, February 24th, at William Workman Gymnasium, to lead Clarksville High School to a 70-48 Region 5-AAA Tournament quarterfinal victory over Gallatin High School.
It was back-to-back 3s midway through the opening quarter by Young that gave the Wildcats (15-11) a 10-9 lead after Gallatin had scored six straight points to take its biggest lead of the game, 9-4.
Clarksville, TN – Over the years there have been more than a few outstanding seasons put together by Austin Peay women’s basketball players, but the 2014-15 season being authored by point guard Tiasha Gray may go down as the best all-around season of all time.
With one final regular-season game remaining against Southeast Missouri — and what is almost an assured spot in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament – it’s not surprising the junior guard is leading the team in scoring, assists and steals, but also tops the team in rebounds.
Clarksville, TN – With his junior season winding down, Austin Peay men’s basketball standout Chris Horton is starting to pile up some impressive numbers, that by the end of his senior campaign may put him in the realm among some of the best to ever wear the Governors uniform.
This past weekend versus Tennessee Martin, Horton not only became the 33rd Austin Peay basketball player to score at least 1,000 points in a career, but just the seventh player all-time to have at least 750 rebounds to go with those points.
Cunningham, TN – The Clarksville area continues to prove it has some of the best junior golfers in the state of Tennessee, with Montgomery Central High School standout Tyler Britt signing to continue his golf career at the collegiate level with the Bethel University Wildcats in McKenzie, TN.
Britt, who will graduate in May with honors, has played as the number one golfer for the Indians the past four years — including having a team-best 39.5 average per nine holes this past fall, earning second-team all-area honor. Overall, Britt is a four-handicap, with a 75 average on 18 holes.
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s baseball team opens its 2015 regular season Friday, February 13th versus Niagara looking to get off to a good start in what hopes to be a return to the top of the Ohio Valley Conference after suffering growing pains and injuries in 2014.
The Governors had 13 freshmen on last years’ squad, including eight that played significant time, which led to some growing pains for a team that had won the conference’s tournament the three previous seasons.
