She recorded a career-high and OVC single-match best 27 kills against tournament host Alabama, while notching a .305 attack percentage. It’s just the 11th time an Austin Peay player has recorded 27 or more kills in a match, and the most since Stephanie Champine’s 29-kill outing against Eastern Kentucky in 2009.

The Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week is selected by the APSU Sports Information staff each Tuesday during the academic year. Copies in a Flash, of Clarksville, sponsors the award.

Other notable performances by Austin Peay athletes included

  • Senior Wes Kitts, of the football team, ran for a career-high 110 yards on 22 carries in the Govs’ loss to No. 15 Virginia Tech, Saturday. In doing so, Kitts became the first Governor to ever rush for 100-plus yards in back-to-back games against FBS opponents. His 110 yards on the ground is the most ever by an APSU back against an FBS opponent.
  • Sophomore Cami Fields, of the volleyball team, was named OVC Setter of the Week for efforts at last weekend’s Bama Bash. She joined Stotts on the All-Tournament team, assisting on nearly 83 percent of the Lady Govs kills (140 assists). She had 52 assists and 10 digs for a double-double against Alabama.
  • Junior Xiamar Richards, of the women’s cross country team, led three Lady Govs into the top 10 at Friday’s Powerade Invitational. Her sixth-place, 12:22.97 run in the two-mile event gives her six top-10’s in her career. She now ranks second all-time in APSU history in the two-mile run.
  • Junior Earnest Smith, of the football team, was all over the place against the Hokies on Saturday. The Clarksville native recorded eight tackles (two solo), including a sack, one and a half tackles for loss and a forced fumble in defeat.
