The future is now for the Austin Peay women's basketball program. Fresh off their second consecutive Ohio Valley Conference regular-season championship and fourth straight tournament title, the Lady Govs have plenty of scholarships available to build a 2004-2005 championship contender. Head Coach Andy Blackston jumped back into the signing frenzy April 15, signing Robin Leslie, of Prospect.

Leslie, a 6-2 center, averaged 15 points and eight rebounds per game during her senior year at Giles County High School, which finished 16-12 this season and reached the Region 5 semi-finals. She was District 9AA's Most Valuable Player and was named to the all-district and all-district tournament squads. Leslie also received recognition on the Region 5AA team and all-region tournament teams.

“We expect Robin will make an immediate impact on our basketball program at the post position,” says Blackston. “She is a tremendous athlete who has the ability to score from inside and out. She also will contribute on the defensive end as a shot blocker. Robin's athleticism makes her a special recruit.”
