Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) beach volleyball team kicks off its fifth season of competition at home when it hosts North Alabama for a doubleheader at 1:00pm and 3:00pm, Friday, at the Govs Beach Volleyball Complex.
The Governors enter their season-opening match after their 2020 season was cut short by the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
Last season, the Govs were off to a 4-0 start after sweeping the competition at the UCA Beach Tournament.
At the 2020 UCA Beach Tournament, the Governors beat North Alabama, 3-2, in their first match before sweeping Hendrix and Park, 5-0. Austin Peay State University then wrapped up the last year’s season-opening event by knocking off Central Arkansas, 3-2.
Following the 2020 UCA Beach Tournament, Caroline Waite and now former Governor Eliza Dees were the first Austin Peay players to ever earn the Ohio Valley Conference’s Beach Volleyball Pair of the Week honors. Waite and Dees posted a perfect 4-0 mark in last season’s opening week.
