APSU Student wins big on “The Price is Right”

 

Austin Peay State University LogoKayla Mikel, an Austin Peay State University nursing student, doesn’t remember dancing with Drew Carey, the host of the TV game show “The Price is Right.”

She appeared on the show as a contestant in July, during a visit to California with her family, but then three months passed before it finally aired this week on national television. A person can forget a lot in three months.

“I don’t remember half the stuff I did,” she admitted.

twraCARYVILLE, Tenn. – The first-ever managed elk hunt in Tennessee has come to a close on just its second day as the fifth and final elk was harvested by Franklin resident Tami Miller late Tuesday afternoon at the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area.

Miller etched her name into the record book with four other sportsmen who had harvests on the opening day, Monday. Miller’s elk was a 5×6 (5 antler points on one side, 6 on the other) with an estimated weight of 700 pounds.

Charles “Chuck” Flynn from the Rockford community in Blount County was confirmed as the first person to legally harvest an elk in Tennessee in almost 150 years. The life-long sportsman made his second shot attempt from about 100 yards shortly after 7:30 a.m. (EDT) as the elk stood on the edge of an open field. The elk field dressed at 520 pounds. Two other hunters, Craig Gardner of Parrottsville, and Ronald Woodard of Oak Ridge quickly followed with their harvests in an approximate span of 30 minutes. «Read the rest of this article»

“It would have been nice to see how we would have played today,” APSU coach Sara Robson said. “Monday’s second round just showed the potential we have.”
