APSU Men’s Tennis

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Despite the cold weather outside, Austin Peay State University men’s tennis team hosts Southern Illinois in a 2:00pm, Friday match indoors at the Governors Tennis Center.

Winter weather has plagued the Clarksville area, but with the indoor facility typically home to Govs tennis through the early part of the season, the weather effect has been minimal. If road conditions allow the Salukis to get to Clarksville, it will be the Govs third indoor match.

“It’s been difficult to train this week because of the snow,” head coach Malik Tabet said. “But I feel like our guys are focused on what they need to be doing and really looking forward to good competition tomorrow.”

Our Son is Home

 

A short commentary by Deb Turbeville on the return of her son from Afghanistan on Monday February 5th 2011

It was frigidly cold, and had sleeted and snowed during the morning. Winds were gusting outside the hangar at 25 to 35 mph. As the plane landed, the crowd gathered outside was a bundle of emotions with screaming, cheering, crying and laughing all at the same time. Although it was cold outside, the weather in our hearts was tropical as we proudly held our American flags high over our heads.
