Austin Peay State University to induct Melissa Gailey-Luckey into 2020 APSU Athletics Hall of Fame

 

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – Thelma had Louise… Cagney had Lacey… Laverne had Shirley… In the annals of Austin Peay State University (APSU) volleyball, Isabel Canedo-Reagan had Melissa Gailey-Luckey.

Canedo-Reagan was the 1991 Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Year as an outside hitter. She was able to be so productive because Canedo-Reagan had her former junior college teammate, Gailey-Luckey, as her chief setter. The duo helped Austin Peay State University stun the league with the 1991 OVC Tournament Championship. In so doing, they became the first non-Kentucky team to win the crown and only the second Lady Govs program to earn an OVC crown.
