Clarksville, TN – Almost three years ago Austin Peay State University Lady Govs basketball player Shelby Olszewski thought her career on the hardwood was over, but several factors leading into this season have led her back to basketball and a second chance to end what she began on her own terms.
“I never really expected that I would come back (and play basketball),” Olszewski said. “I never thought I would do it, but my sister (Nicole) said to me when I told her that I was going to come back and play again said ‘at least you’ll get to finish what you started’”.
