Austin Peay State University

Austin Peay State University Lady Govs - APSUClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team looks to end its four-game road trip on a positive note as the Lady Govs travel to Mobile, AL, this weekend, to face Troy and South Alabama in the Jaguar Classic.

The Lady Govs (1-2-1) faced an uphill battle last Sunday at Ole Miss, dropping below .500 after a 5-0 defeat. The offense was slowed as the Rebels held a 24-4 shot advantage, leading to a one-sided game in the midfield. But after a solid week of training, Austin Peay’s mix of veterans and youthful talent look to bounce back over the weekend.

Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: Retro Braves

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN As far back as I can remember, the Braves were fine. Nearly always good, occasionally great. Sure, there was that 2008 team that was underachieving and unfortunate and doesn’t bear any measure of discussion. But from the time I started paying attention to baseball, I could nearly always count on Atlanta being involved in meaningful games in August and September.

So 2015 will be slightly different.
