Clarksville, TN – Junior Morgan Kauffman, of the Austin Peay State University women’s golf team, has been named the Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week.
Kauffman earned All-Tournament honors at the 2016 Ohio Valley Conference Women’s Golf Championships, placing fifth with a three-round 224 (75-76-73) after moving up three spots to lead the Lady Govs to a fifth-place team finish. She is Austin Peay’s first All-Tournament player since Chelsea Harris’ string of four straight all-tournament honors (2008-11).
She punctuated Austin Peay’s final-round 306 as a team with a birdie on the 18th hole.
The Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week is selected by the APSU Sports Information staff each Wednesday during the academic year. Copies in a Flash, of Clarksville, sponsors the award.
