Written by Colby Wilson

APSU Sports Information

Austin Peay State University Governors SportsClarksville, TN – Lee Ridenhour took a different road to Austin Peay than many that have donned the red-and-white.

He beat then-No. 21 Arkansas in his collegiate debut, dueled No. 1 Texas to a stand-still (six and two-thirds, two runs allowed in a no-decision) and defeated No. 9 Kansas State for his sixth win, the most for a Jayhawk frosh in 15 seasons.
