Hopkinsville, KY – With junior Holly Batey shooting her first career under-par round as a Lady Gov, Austin Peay State University’s golf team sits in fourth place after the first day of the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate, being held at The Links of Novadell in Hopkinsville.
Batey shot a one-under 71—the Lady Govs first under-par round of 2011-12—on the 6,109-yard course. Not only was it her best round as a Lady Govs but it left Batey tied with Eastern Kentucky’s Lisanne Schmidt for first place.
The streak continues for Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team which claimed a 1-0 win against South Alabama, Friday, at the Troy Invitational.
“It was a pretty even back and forth game,” said head coach Kelley Guth. “The team worked very hard and I felt like we controlled the tempo of the game. South Alabama was very organized and very good at what they did. We had to make some adjustments to take away some opportunities. They had some good speed and athleticism up front, but our back line did very well.”
This time it was freshman Tatiana Ariza scoring the game winner, just six seconds before the break. A shot by freshmen Andy Quiceno in the 43rd minute led to a pair of Lady Govs corner kicks as the first half clock ticked down. With a 10-second countdown in progress, freshman Corey Osborn’s corner kick was scored by Tatiana Ariza to give APSU a 1-0 lead that would stand.
Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team moved into unchartered territory with a 2-0 win against Chattanooga, Sunday, at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field.
Going into the season, head coach Kelley Guth expected to see a number of freshmen contribute immediately. The extent of their contributions was put on display in Sunday’s win.
Harris, who finished three strokes behind the individual medalist, ended the rain-shortened tourney place with a 148 after shooting 78 earlier in Monday’s first round. The Lady Govs finished sixth as a team in the tourney.
The Metropolis, Ill., native’s second-round 70 represented the second best 18 holes of her career—she shot a 69 at Western Carolina’s Great Smokies tourney as a sophomore. Through eight rounds this fall, Harris ranks sixth in the OVC in stroke average (77.0).
As a result, the Lady Govs were unable to build on Monday’s second round 302 at the Troy Country Club. APSU shot 321 in the morning and finished sixth at 623. Louisiana-Monroe (607) was declared the winner followed by Troy (609).
“It would have been nice to see how we would have played today,” APSU coach Sara Robson said. “Monday’s second round just showed the potential we have.”
