Austin Peay State University Volleyball wins hard fought match against UT Martin in Straight Sets

APSU Women's VolleyballClarksville, TN – Graduate student Brooke Moore became the Austin Peay State University (APSU) volleyball team’s all-time kills leader in the Governors three-set (26-24, 27-25, 25-23) Ohio Valley Conference victory over UT Martin, Sunday, at the Winfield Dunn Center.

With her seventh kill of the afternoon, Moore recorded the 1,531st kill of her career and passed Sarah Schramka’s previous record of 1,530 – which she had held since 2004.

After coming back from down two sets to win Saturday’s match, the Govs swept UT Martin in the series finale, defeating the Skyhawks in three-straight sets decided by two points.

2021-22 APSU Volleyball - Maggie Keenan. (Robert Smith, APSU Sports Information)Sophomores Maggie Keenan and Kaylah Jackson each led Austin Peay with four kills in the first set as the Govs overcame a late 22-20 deficit. The Govs went on a 6-2 run that was capped off by a Jaida Clark kill, followed by the freshman’s first of two blocks of the night.

2021-22 APSU Volleyball - Brooke Moore. (Robert Smith,APSU Sports Information)Moore paced the Govs in the second set with six kills, including her record-breaking attack that gave APSU just its second lead of the frame at 20-19. After trading scores following an APSU timeout, the Govs finished the set on a 4-1 run to extend their lead heading into the third frame.

Austin Peay State University faced its largest deficit of the match at 13-5 before a 10-3 run saw them trim the Skyhawks’ lead to just one.

2021-22 APSU Volleyball - Kaylah Jackson. (Robert Smith, APSU Sports Information)After trading scores, Clark’s back-to-back kills gave APSU its first lead, before three-straight points to end the set gave APSU its 11th three-set victory of the season.

With the win over UT Martin, Austin Peay State University improved to 9-0 at home this season, marking just the third time in program history that the Governors have posted a perfect regular-season record at home – the 1992 and 2018 squads were also perfect in the Dunn Center during the regular season.

At 19-9, the victory also keeps the APSU Govs in second place in the OVC standings with just three matches remaining before the OVC Tournament.
