    Tuesday’s contest at Murray State will be the first meeting in the “Battle of the Border” presented by Heritage Bank. The multi-sport competition will award points for intercollegiate contests between the two programs.
  • Win Streak Stays Alive
    With its two OVC-opening wins last weekend, Austin Peay ran its win streak to six matches – tied for 14th longest in Division I. The Governors have claimed 18 of their 19 sets during the win streak.
  • Teeter Nabs Newcomer Honor
    For a second straight week, junior Kaitlyn Teeter was named the adidas® OVC Newcomer of the Week. She averaged 4.50 kills per set in the Govs 2 OVC wins last weekend, while running her double-digit kill streak to 7 matches.
  • Stucker Sets the Stage
    Sophomore Kristen Stucker ended the weekend as the OVC’s assists leader (72nd nationally), averaging 10.33 helpers per set. Stucker averaged 13.00 assists per set last weekend while adding 12 digs and a team-best five blocks.
  • Offensive Pace Quickening
    The Govs finished the weekend as the league’s most efficient offense with an OVC-best .218 attack percentage. The Govs were second in kills, averaging 13.22 per set.
