Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s softball team seeks to pick up its first Ohio Valley Conference season win, 3:00pm, Tuesday, as it travels to Martin to take on UT Martin in a doubleheader at Bettye Giles Field.

Not only does Austin Peay (4-19, 0-6 OVC) enter the doubleheader looking for its first conference win, it as well looks to bump the Skyhawks (16-9, 6-0 OVC) from their first-place OVC tie with Jacksonville State.

Offensively, the Lady Govs enter the doubleheader with two players hitting .300 or better. Freshman Lauren de Castro leads the team with a .303 batting average, including four doubles, two home runs, 10 runs scored and 11 RBI.

Junior Catie Cozart, who went 6-for-10 at the plate versus Eastern Kentucky this past weekend, has raised her season batting average to an even .300, with three doubles, two triples and two home runs to go with 12 runs scored.

Senior Tiffany Smith also has been a cog in the Austin Peay offense this season, with a team-best 13 runs scored and 14 RBI.

In the circle, sophomore Morgan Brewer leads the Lady Govs with two wins so far this season.
