APSU Women’s Volleyball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – After its recent up-and-down weekend, Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team moves solidly into the second half of Ohio Valley Conference play with a three-match road trip beginning this weekend. The Lady Govs open the trip with a 7:00pm, Friday contest at UT Martin followed by a 2:00pm, Saturday affair at Murray State.

Austin Peay (16-5, 7-3 OVC) closed the first half of league action with an upset victory of then-OVC unbeaten Morehead State. However, the Lady Govs followed that by opening the second half of the league slate with a loss to Eastern Kentucky. The split of last weekend’s matches left Austin Peay tied for second place with Eastern Kentucky, two games behind league-leading Morehead State.
