Lady Govs Soccer picked third in OVC Preseason Poll

 

APSU Sports: Women’s Soccer

Austin Peay State University Lady GovsClarksville, TN – A year removed from the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament’s championship game, Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team has been picked third in the OVC’s preseason soccer poll, the league announced, Thursday.

“We’re happy about it, but at the same time, I don’t put much stock in preseason polls,” head coach Kelley Guth said. “It’s an indicator that our results, last year, earned us some respect within the conference and it’s well deserved. But that was last year and it’s a brand new season and anything can happen.”

APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsSt. Louis, MO –  Two teams in transition will open the season, 7:30pm, Friday, when Austin Peay State University heads to Chaifetz Arena to battle St. Louis University.

Austin Peay is coming off a 17-15 season that saw the Governors incur a crushing opening-round Ohio Valley Conference tournament home loss to Tennessee Tech. Eight new faces (seven recruits and one walk-on) dot the roster, including three junior college transfers, to pair with six returnees, including preseason All-OVC selection Anthony Campbell (15.5 ppg, 5.3 rpg) along with junior center John Fraley (9.2 ppg, 7.8 rpg), the league’s second-leading rebounder a year ago.

“Our challenge is to bring that all together,” said APSU coach Dave Loos, a St. Louis native. “We think our newcomers are certainly promising. On the flip side, we’ve got six returning players that all played significant minutes.”
