Wednesday, February 14, 2018 - by Scott Herpst
The Georgia Northwestern Lady Bobcats snapped a two-game losing skid with a 55-43 win at Toccoa Falls College on Tuesday night.

Georgia Northwestern (10-7) led 33-24 at the break before going on to the victory.

Junior guard Katy Phillips had a season-high 19 points, while freshman Tori Harvey had eight points and grabbed a career-high 23 rebounds, giving the ex-Heritage Lady Generals five straight games with double figures on the glass.

Mia Clark had her best scoring game of the year with 12 points. Madison Lewis added seven points and 10 boards. Christina DeSalvo had five points and four rebounds and Taylor Bethune picked up nine boards to go with four points.

The Lady Bobcats' 10th win of the season tied the program's all-time single-season mark and it was also the 550th career coaching victory for head coach David Stephenson.

Both Georgia Northwestern teams will go on the road Friday night as they head to Gallatin, Tenn. to take on Welch College in a doubleheader.



Randy Smth: My Mistakes And Grant Williams

At the ripe old age of 66 years old, soon to be 67, I find myself making more mistakes than I used to make; many more.

Davenport actually was a star at Soddy-Daisy in the early 1970s. The 6'-7" player to whom I was thinking ... (click for more)

Sandra and I are saddened this morning after learning of the death of Billy Graham.

He said the truth is that he had only moved to a new location".  I remember when we named 15th Street as Billy Graham Avenue, his daughter Gigi came for the dedication ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Me & Billy Graham

For several years in my life it seemed my bad arm and I spent more time at Mayo Clinic than we did in my own house. I hold the record for the most different infections in an elbow at the same time, and my medical charts never had my name on them, instead I was simply, “Mr. Complication.” One morning in particular I spent a horrible three hours in the “nerve conduction lab” with ...
