Clarksville, TN – A veteran Austin Peay State University (APSU) women’s golf lineup, helmed by a precocious yet talented freshman, will take to the course Monday, April 15th as the Govs challenge for the 2019 Ohio Valley Conference Women’s Golf Championship.
This three-day, 54-hole event will once again take place on the Schoolmaster Course of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at the Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
This is the second consecutive year this event will be contested on the 6,043-yard, par-72 Schoolmaster Course, and the fourth time the women’s championship has been played at the RTJ stop at the Shoals.
The Govs will be joined by two-time defending champion Murray State, Belmont, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Morehead State, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech in this event; Austin Peay is scheduled to begin play at 8:50am, Monday, paired with Morehead State and Belmont.
An incredible amount of experience comes into this event for Austin Peay, and they’ll need all of it as they look to bring home the program’s first top-three finish since 2002-03. For the fourth straight year, both Taylor Goodley  and Ashton Goodley  will be in the lineup, while both junior Meghann Stamps  and senior Reagan Greene  look to reprise their roles in the top-10 from last season.
But with all that experience, a fresh-faced newcomer will lead the way at the top of the lineup. Taylor Dedmen , whose spring session alone would merit consideration for OVC Freshman of the Year honors, will slot in as the No. 1 and as Austin Peay’s leader in stroke average (76.0); she’ll look for Austin Peay’s first top-10 finish by a freshman since Jessica Cathey  (t-ninth) in 2013.
Stamps and Greene will play as the No. 2 and No. 3 players in the lineup this week, each with a top-10 to their credit this season; Stamps was eighth in her last appearance in Alabama, at September’s Chris Banister Classic in Glencoe, while Greene closed the fall with a win at the Town and Country Invitational in Nashville, TN.
While Stamps had been taking a round to really warm up—even after a 76-76-77 at Murray State two weeks ago, she’s still averaging a full stroke more in her opening round than in later rounds—her progress at the Jan Weaver Invitational indicates a determination to get out to a solid start this week.
Live scoring will be available at OVCSports.com’s Tournament Central page, with the top-five finishers slated to earn all-tournament honors. LetsGoPeay.com will have a complete recap each day, while Austin Peay’s women’s golf twitter (@AustinPeayWGO) will have updates throughout the round.
The OVC’s postseason awards banquet will be held Monday night; LetsGoPeay.com will recap the season of any Austin Peay honorees that evening.
