Sunday is where it all begins for Lady Govs Basketball

 

APSU Sports Information: APSU Basketball

Austin Peay State University Lady GovsClarksville, TN – As the calendar turns to October the sounds in the Dunn Center turn increasingly to the sound of squeaking shoes and balls bouncing off the hardwood. That sound will increased this weekend as Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team begins its preseason practice schedule with a 5:00pm, Sunday practice.

This is the second season for a redefined practice rule approved by the NCAA. Beginning last season, women’s teams were permitted to start practices 40 days prior to their first regular-season contest. Within that window, a team can hold 30 team practices, meaning a schedule of five practice days per week with two days off. The extended window did not provide any additional practice opportunities but allowed women’s teams more flexibility to work around class schedules.

Rockies’ Reynolds relishes relief role

 

APSU Sports: Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Many people forget about Matt Reynolds and the impact he had at Austin Peay.  Of course, he pitched in the long shadow cast by two of the greatest pitchers in Austin Peay history. But at 6-5, 240 pounds, Reynolds certainly now casts a shadow of his own.

The truth about Reynolds is he probably shouldn’t be where he is today. He probably shouldn’t be on a Major League roster, coming out of the bullpen for the Colorado Rockies. But there he is, night after night, putting in his work. In fact, he’s tied for 16th among MLB relievers with 41 appearances, which just happens to be tops for the Rockies.
