6th-Ranked Lady Bobcats Win 6th Game Of Season

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

The Georgia Northwestern Lady Bobcats, tied for sixth in the latest USCAA Division II national poll, kept up their hot start to the 2017-18 season with a 68-39 victory over the Covenant College junior varsity team Tuesday night at the Rossville Athletic Center.

 

The win moved the Lady Bobcats to 6-1 overall and gave them a sweep of the Lady Scots in the season series.

 

Georgia Northwestern, playing once again without injured center Madison Lewis, led 36-18 at intermission and never looked back as they bounced back from their only loss of the year at Warren Wilson College this past Friday.

 

Freshman guard Jayla Stone torched Covenant with 21 points and collected eight steals, while freshman Taylor Bethune poured in a career-high 18 points and collected five rebounds. Freshman Tori Harvey filled up the stat sheet with eight points, six boards, five assists and three steals, while junior Katy Phillips, who missed the first meeting with Covenant due to an illness, added four points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals.

 

Also adding to the win was Christina DeSalvo (8 points, 7 rebounds), Mia Clark (7 points) and Tori Hall (2 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals).

 

Heather Andrews had 16 points for the Lady Scots.

 

The Lady Bobcats will be back in action at home on Friday on the opening night of the Tim Walthour Memorial Tournament at the Rossville Athletic Center. Georgia Northwestern will take on Trinity Baptist College from Jacksonville, Florida at 6 p.m.in a rematch from the first game of the season. The Lady Bobcats won that meeting, 72-60, in Florida.

 

Lewis is expected to be back for the tournament. The 6-foot-3 center had 27 points and 19 rebounds in the team's first meeting.

 

Hiwassee College and Welch College will play in the day's first game at 2 p.m. The women's consolation game will be at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, while the championship game is slated for 2:30 p.m.

Randy Smith: How The Coaching Carousel Turns

Hiring college football coaches is not an exact science.

Those three are, Nick Saban at Alabama for ten years, Gus Malzahn at Auburn for five years and Mark Stoops at Kentucky for five. While it appears there ... (click for more)

Bill Lee Is Great For Tennessee

I had the opportunity to meet Bill and Maria Lee at the grand opening of his Chattanooga Campaign HQ. He delivered, what was by most accounts, a showstopper speech at the Statesman’s dinner in Nashville the night before. He and Maria should have been worn out, but if they were, they really showed very little sign of it. His energy level, for a guy that couldn’t have gotten more ... (click for more)

A Successful East Ridge Bake Sale

Saturday's event at the Camp Jordan Pavilion was nothing more than extraordinary, if not history making.  Alongside the threatening eminent domain letters the citizens of East Ridge received, a Union was formed amongst the East Ridge Police Department.  Coming to City Council the night of April 26, I had only one thing I was focused on: eminent domain.  ...
