APSU Sports: Austin Peay Softball
Clarksville, TN – Casey Dickson, Austin Peay State University’s softball coach for the past four seasons, will not have her contract renewed for the 2012-13 school year.
Austin Peay finished the 2012 season with 19-31 record, 10-20 in the Ohio Valley Conference, and failed to qualify for the OVC tournament for a fourth-straight season.Overall, Dickson was 62-149 in four seasons as head coach. Dickson came to Austin Peay after spending three seasons as Temple’s head coach.
“We appreciate the time and effort of Coach Dickson these past four years,” APSU Assistant Athletics Director Cheryl Holt said. “But we have elected to go in a different direction with the program.”
APSU will begin an immediate search for a new coach, the program’s seventh. The new coach will inherit a club that only had three seniors in 2012. It is expected to return junior first-team All-OVC first baseman/pitcher Lauren de Castro along with senior pitcher/utility player Morgan Brewer and sophomore shortstop Paige Neely, who both earned second-team All-OVC honors.
