Brentwood, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) soccer team freshman Tori Case has been named to the Ohio Valley Conference All-Newcomer team, the league announced Wednesday, April 14th, 2021.
“We are delighted for Tori to be honored on the All-OVC Newcomer team,” said head coach Naomi Kolarova. “She has been clutch for us in the midfield this year.”
