CLARKSVILLE – Austin Peay softball has added another piece to its 2012 recruiting class with the addition of Chandler Groves, a shortstop/catcher utility player from Cross Plains, Tennessee.
Groves prepped for Kevin Evans at East Robertson High School, hitting .406 with eight home runs and 19 RBI as a lead-off batter on her way to all-district and all-county honors. At one point, she homered in five consecutive games.
Groves brings some big-game experience with her. She was a pivotal part of East Robertson’s 2010 squad that went to the semifinals of the Class A state tournament. She becomes the first player from East Robertson signed by Austin Peay since Tiffany Bell in 1998.
“Chandler will instantly add offense to our lineup,” said Lady Govs head coach Stephanie Paris. “She’s got a great swing with natural power. She’s athletic enough to play catcher or shortstop at a high level and I’m anxious to see where she will fit in best.”
