Clarksville, TN – For the second time in as many seasons, Austin Peay State University will play host to the Ohio Valley Conference volleyball championship tournament, running Nov. 15th through 17th at the Dunn Center, with a probable finals showdown versus the Murray State Racers for the tournament title and the automatic NCAA Tournament berth looming.
The Governors earned the host position and the tournament’s number-one seed after winning the conference’s regular-season title for the second straight year – the first time the program has won back-to-back regular-season titles – and finishing with a 25-4 overall record, including a 14-2 mark in OVC play.

The Governors volleyball team enters its third week of play sporting a perfect 6-0 record — the second-best start to the season in program history — trailing only the 1984 squad that opened the season winning their first eight matches, after going 3-0 at the Missouri-Kansas City Kangaroo Klassic and the Middle Tennessee Raider Bash.

Clarksville, TN – Ohio Valley Conference championship tournament play begins this week for Austin Peay State University’s women’s golf team and both men’s and women’s tennis teams, as they look to join the Governors volleyball team in winning a conference title in the 2017-18 school year.
The women’s golf team will open play April 15th at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at the Shoals in Muscle Shoals, AL, while the tennis teams will play on April 20th at the Centennial Sportsplex Tennis Center in Nashville, TN.
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.
Clarksville, TN – For the past couple of years, the Austin Peay State University men’s golf program had settled into the middle of the Ohio Valley Conference standings, but if the current trend of play continues the Govs may very well find themselves back in contention for an OVC Title in late April.
The program, which has had a long and distinguished past, had finished in eighth- and sixth-place in the final standings of the OVC Championship Tournament the past two seasons, but head coach Robbie Wilson has his team playing as well as any in the conference in 2018.
