Memphis, TN – Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team couldn’t maintain the momentum of its season-opening victory, dropping a five-set contest (25-13, 23-25, 23-25, 25-23, 13-15) to UALR, Saturday afternoon, in the Memphis Invitational at Elma Roane Fieldhouse.
Austin Peay (1-1) won a lopsided first set, jumping out to a 15-5 lead and not looking back en route to a 25-13 win. The Lady Govs needed only 12 kills in the win as UALR handed them 10 points on errors.
Stating safety concerns due to the weather, earlier this month the promoters for the Kelly Clarkson concert had decided to reschedule the concert for a later date.
The Air Force Reserve Band will begin rocking at 5:30pm and will be followed by the Rock 101 Band at 7:00pm. Kelly Clarkson takes the stage at 8:00pm.
