“The team has been working hard in the weight room and on the pitch the past five weeks in preparation for our spring games these next five weeks,” said APSU head coach Naomi Kolarova.

“We are excited to see some new competition as well as some old foes, and to continue to work on preparing our returners for the fall of 2020,” Kolarova stated.

The APSU Govs start the spring season at Western Kentucky, February 29th, for a seven-on-seven tournament. The Governors have not played Western Kentucky in a regular season match since the 2017season, but they have taken on the Hilltoppers in a fall exhibition match each of the past two seasons. Evansville, Asbury, and Cumberland will also be at Western Kentucky for the seven-on-seven tournament.

After the seven-on-seven tournament, the Govs will play a 7:00pm, March 5th, match against Murray State at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field. In the fall match against the Racers, a 17th minute goal from Ashley Whittaker gave the Govs an early 1-0 lead. But Murray State tied the match before the half, and scored a game-winning double-overtime goal in 105th minute to knock off the Governors.

After the matchup with the Racers, Austin Peay State University will take the pitch against Campbellsville for the first time since October 10th, 2003. The Governors beat the Tiger, 9-0, in their only previous meeting. Lipscomb is up next on the schedule for the Governors, who will take on the Bison in a 7:00pm, March 25th, match at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field. Lipscomb knocked off Austin Peay, 3-1, on September 4th, 2016, in their last meeting; but the Govs still hold the lead in the all-time series 8-5-1.

Next up, the Governors will welcome FC London to Clarksville for a 1:00pm, March 29th, match. FC London is a club team that is the reigning champions in League1 Ontario, they are also the summer team of the Governors Claire Larose.

Finally, the APSU Govs will hit the road for the final time during their spring schedule, when they travel to Florence, Alabama, for a pair of matches at North Alabama. The Govs will take on North Alabama and West Georgia, April 4th, to wrap up the competitive portion of the spring schedule.

With the competitive portion of the spring schedule in the books, the Governors will return to Morgan Brothers Soccer Field where they will host the Annual Austin Peay Soccer Alumni Game to wrap up the spring season.
