UTC's Van Hee Wins Match at Alabama

Saturday, February 3, 2018
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga freshman Emma Van Hee scored a three-set win at No. 6 singles in the Mocs dual match at Alabama today.  UTC (2-1) dropped the team score 6-1 to the Crimson Tide who improved to 8-0 overall. 

Van Hee dropped the opening set in a tiebreaker [6-7 (5)] to Alba Cortina-Pou.  Van Hee battled back to take the second frame 6-3.  With the team score decided, they played a super-tiebreaker for the third set, which Van Hee won 10-7.
  She improved to 2-0 in the spring with this impressive win on her 19th birthday.   

“It was a great match,” stated UTC head coach Chad Camper.  “We fought.  All of the doubles were close, Caroline Hall lost in a breaker in the second and Tamri went three sets.

“I am really proud of this team.  The new kids are developing and the older girls are really stepping up in the lineup.  I think we have good things to come.  We have a tough one tomorrow, but we just keep improving.  That is the goal.”

The Mocs travel to Austin Peay for a 2:00 p.m. (E.S.T.) match tomorrow in Clarksville, Tenn.  Be sure to check back to GoMocs.com for complete results.

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. In a column I wrote last week about the Howard-Riverside rivalry, I referred to one of the key figures on the great Riverside squads as Sylvester Davenport. Davenport actually was a star at Soddy-Daisy in the early 1970s. The 6'-7" player to whom I was thinking ... (click for more)

Reflections On Billy Graham

Sandra and I are saddened this morning after learning of the death of Billy Graham. We rejoice today, because Mr. Graham once said "It will be reported that Billy Graham has died, but that won't be the truth. 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 ...
