APSU Sports: Austin Peay Soccer
Clarksville, TN – Since arriving back on campus Tuesday, the Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team has been putting in long hours with team meetings, dinners and training sessions at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field in preparation for the 2012 campaign.
With all 11 starters returning, a couple of veterans coming back from injury and a deep, talented recruiting class, head coach Kelley Guth has a strong stable of talent coming into the season.
The Lady Govs are missing two of their number during the early portions of camp. Juniors Natalia and Tatiana Ariza are currently in London, having represented their native Columbia in the 2012 Summer Olympics. The duo will return to Bogota before rejoining their Lady Govs teammates in Clarksville for the upcoming season.
The Lady Govs open exhibition play at 6:00pm Wednesday, August 8th, at Evansville before kicking off the regular season at 7:00pm Friday, August 17th at Arkansas. Austin Peay opens its home slate with a 7:00pm Friday, August 24th match against Appalachian State.
