Austin Peay (4-9) returned to the court less than 12 hours after a hard-fought four-set loss to Alabama Friday night. Instead, it roared out of the gates with an impressive 25-9 first set victory against Lamar. The Lady Govs needed only eight kills in the set as they scored an impressive seven service aces, including five by junior middle blocker Lauren Henderson.

Lamar (7-6) bounced back in the second set, but only after finding itself in a five-point, 15-10, hole as Austin Peay dominated the early going. The Cardinals would get back within one point, 21-20, but could not get closer as the Lady Govs held on for the 25-23 win.

Lauren HendersonThe third set was close early with 12 ties and five lead changes in the first 30 points and Lamar held a 14-12 lead. But a 6-0 Austin Peay run turned the tide and a final 6-0 run finished the job in a 25-16 match-ending set win.

“We executed our offense well this morning,” said Lady Govs head coach Taylor Mott. “Lauren got on a roll serving in set one and really gave us momentum. Jada continues to excel offensively and our middles came up big as well. I can’t say enough about the job Cami has done this weekend, she continues to make smart setting decisions.”

Nikki DoyleHenderson finished with eight kills and five service aces to lead Austin Peay. Senior outside hitter Nikki Doyle posted a team-best 12 kills and sophomore outside hitter Jada Stotts chipped in 10 kills. Austin Peay recorded 37 kills and a .301 attack percentage in the win.
