APSU Sports: Women’s Volleyball
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team began its preseason preparations with a pair of practices, Tuesday, at the Memorial Health Building also known as The Red Barn.
The Lady Govs reported to campus and moved into housing, Sunday, followed by a Monday full of meetings. Under first-year head coach Bill Egbert, the team hit the court at The Red Barn this morning before returning for an afternoon session.We’re actually a lot of good surprises with the kids coming back,” said Egbert. “We didn’t have the opportunity to see [the freshmen] play all that much and we’re really happy with where they’re coming in and how they’re going to be able to contribute. I’d say I’m optimistic about where we started and we’re not as far behind as I thought we might be.”
Austin Peay’s volleyball team was picked to finish second in the Ohio Valley Conference’s preseason poll. The Lady Govs have 15 days of preseason practice prior to opening their 2011 schedule with a Friday, August 26th contest at Alabama.
