Austin Peay State University Volleyball falls at Southeast Missouri in Five Sets

APSU Women's VolleyballCape Girardeau, MO – Austin Peay State University (APSU) volleyball graduate student Brooke Moore not only passed Amy Walk for second all-time in kills during the Govs’ five-set (35-33, 22-25, 22-25, 25-23, 9-15) Ohio Valley Conference loss to Southeast Missouri but also became the first player in program history to record 1,500 kills and 1,500 digs in a career.

Moore entered Thursday’s match with 1,480 career kills and 1,489 digs. The Louisville native passed Walk’s mark (1,483 kills) midway through an extended first set, became the 10th player in program history to surpass 1,500 digs in the third set, and joined a shortlist of players in NCAA history to surpass 1,500 kills and 1,500 digs in a career late in the final set.

After Southeast Missouri took a 24-23 lead to bring up the first set point of the night, a Redhawks’ error followed by Claire Darland’s second kill forced SEMO to take a timeout. The two OVC rivals exchanged the next 18 points before Caroline Waite’s service ace gave the Govs the win in a first set that featured 26 ties and five lead changes.

Austin Peay State University’s 35 first-set points are the second-most points scored in a single set in program history, trailing only a 43-point effort against Murray State in 2011.

A 7-2 run in the second set gave Southeast Missouri a 21-16 advantage and, despite numerous comeback attempts by the Govs, the Redhawks tied the match following a 25-22 victory. The Govs led 20-18 in the third set; however, another 7-2 run by Southeast Missouri extended its lead to 2-1.

With their backs against the wall, Moore led APSU with five kills in the fourth frame as the Govs capitalized on 10 Redhawks’ errors and held them to a match-low .136 hitting percentage. 

Despite forcing the fifth set, a 9-2 run by the Redhawks proved to be the deciding factor in Thursday’s match, as SEMO won their fifth-straight match against over APSU courtesy of a 15-9 victory.

Austin Peay State University’s 113 points through five sets tied for the third-highest mark in program history, while Moore’s 20-kill, 20-dig night was the second time she has accomplished that feat in her career and the 17th time it has been done by a Gov since 1998.
