Bryan Takes 3-0 Win Over Georgia Northwestern

Wednesday, October 2, 2013
Freshman Lady Bobcat Casey Chapman (North Murray) led the way for Georgia Northwestern Monday night with four kills and an ace. However, Bryan College would handle the Cats, 18-25, 18-25, 12-25.

Georgia Northwestern (4-8) looks to climb back towards the .500 mark this weekend with an impressive showing at the Crusader Invitational at Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Match-ups were still to be determined as of press time. The Lady Cats are expected to face-off with the host Lady Crusaders in the event.
Tennessee Temple took a best-of-five match with the Cats on September 16 at McGilvray Gymnasium.

The Lady Cats will have five matches remaining after the invitational. Topping the list of dates is a road trip to Huntsville, Alabama to take on Oakwood University. The Lady Ambassadors took a best-of-five match on their home court, three games to one, last October against the visiting Cats.

“Our tallest player last year in the same match was barely 5-foot-7. This year, we’ve had a chance to recruit and the front line is much more of a force,” said Georgia Northwestern Head Women’s Volleyball Coach Carrie Powell. “We are definitely bringing size that will force other programs to change the way they attack us. It also allows us to put our two returners from last year in their true positions.”

5-foot-4 Candice McClain led the way in the same match last year with 13 kills from the front row. Now, McClain, and 5-foot-1 Fallon Larmon will have the chance to defend the back line as 6-foot-1 Holly Mount, 5-foot-11 Layna Jenkins, 5-foot-10 Casey Chapman, and 5-foot-10 Victoria Sprouse team up to man the front line of the Lady Cat attack in 2013.

VW PILOT Crash Landing

The Volkswagen emission scandal proves the point citizen activist, Ms. Helen Burns Sharp, has repeatedly brought to the attention of local government officials. She urged them to "beef up" the PILOT contracts before approving PILOT tax abatements. Any logical person would agree, because it is the only way to recoup a tax loss when unthinkable situations arise. Volkswagen's willful ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Readers Are Right

Jeffrey Cross is a community activist in the very finest way. He has no idea that I and many others have followed what he has done, and tirelessly I might add, to enhance the St. Elmo neighborhood at the foot of Lookout Mountain. I wish this world had a million Jeffrey Crosses. So when he wrote in protest of my Monday story, “We Want Our City Back,” I was more than eager to read ... (click for more)
