Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University has had several outstanding hitters go through its softball program, over its 33-year history, but the current year at the plate that third baseman Danielle Liermann is having this spring may be the best season by any player to ever wear the Red and White.
Liermann, a junior from Simi Valley, CA, is batting .410 this season for the Govs (26-11, 8-2 OVC), after the April 8th sweep of fellow Ohio Valley Conference member Tennessee Martin, with eight doubles, 15 home runs and 44 RBIs.
