Clarksville, TN – Junior outside hitter Ashley Slay, of the Austin Peay State University volleyball team, has been named the Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week.
For the second time in 2016, Slay earned adidas® / Ohio Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Week, this time for hitting over .400 in three Governor victories.
The Nashville native opened the week with seven kills against Alabama A&M but saved her best for the OVC slate, posting 16 kills against UT Martin, Friday, and her season’s second 22-kill performance in Saturday’s five-set comeback win against Southeast Missouri.
In sweeping the week, Slay and the Govs became the first Austin Peay squad to win 20 games since the 2010 team that won the OVC Tournament.
Slay now has 337 kills (3.30 kills per set) and 92 blocks this season.
The Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week is selected by the APSU Sports Information staff each Wednesday during the academic year. Copies in a Flash, of Clarksville, sponsors the award.
