Austin Peay State University Athlete of the Week Dustin Korte

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Senior Dustin Korte, of the Austin Peay State University men’s golf team, has been named the Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week.

At last week’s NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Regional in Tempe, AZ, Korte finished eighth in the 75-player field with a six-under par 204 (64-71-69) and advanced to next week’s NCAA Championship.

He opened the tournament by firing a school-record 64 to propel the Govs to a third-place finish after Day One in Tempe. He went without a bogey on the round and birdied holes No. 1, 2, 11 and 16, and added an eagle on the par-5 14th hole for good measure.

Although the Govs as a team faded to a tie for seventh place along with ninth-ranked Duke, Korte played even-par golf over the final two days to punch his ticket as the regional’s individual qualifier for the NCAA Championship at the Capital City Club’s Crabapple Course, May 28th-June 2nd in Atlanta, GA.

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 shortstop Reed Harper, of the baseball team, hit .632 last week en route to adidas® Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week honors. The Clarksville native posted multi-hit outings in all four Governor wins, going 12-for-19, and sits two hits away from breaking the all-time hits mark (276) set by Greg Bachman in 2012.
  • Junior pitcher Zach Hall, of the baseball team, tossed five no-hit innings and surrendered only two hits total while striking out five and allowing no runs in the series opener against SIU Edwardsville.
