Softball Mocs Host Ring Ceremony, Blue/Gold Game

Wednesday, October 9, 2019
 Every season starts with one goal. Put a ring on it. The time has finally come for the 2019 Southern Conference Champion Chattanooga Mocs softball program to acquire the jewels and diamonds of the program's 14th tournament title ring this Saturday inside Jim Frost Stadium.
 
The special ring presentation is set for 11 a.m. with the annual Blue/Gold intra-squad game to follow. Fans are invited to stay for a FREE cookout hosted by the RBI club after conclusion of the scrimmage.
 
Members of the 2019 championship squad will be presented with the hardware in recognition of the team's successful season that concluded in May.
 
Chattanooga finished with a 37-17 overall record and captured its 14th SoCon Tournament title in dominant fashion behind a 10-1, run-rule, victory over top-seeded UNCG on its home turf in the winner-take-all final game.
The win secured the program's 11th trip to the NCAA Tournament's Regional round.
 
The Mocs were selected to participate in the Oxford Regional, hosted by Ole Miss, before seeing its incredible season end just shy of reaching Super Regional status.

The entire reflection of last spring's title run that will take place on Saturday, leads into the bright future and high expectations placed on the upcoming 2020 season. Fans will get a first glimpse of the roster during the annual Blue/Gold game.
 
UTC returns roughly 60% of its total offense when it comes to hits, runs, RBI and total bases. Three fifth-year seniors, Katie Corum, Emma Sturdivant and Morgan Kazerooni look towards another season and join much-experienced and talented seniors Aly Walker, Hayleigh Weissenbach, Taylor Chadwick and Amy Lewis to amass veteran leadership.
 
In addition to the offense, the pitching staff returns with a combined 2.08 ERA and 25 wins including SoCon Pitcher of the Year Celie Hudson. Junior Allison Swinford also returns to the circle in 2020 after leading the team with a 1.93 earned-run-average last season.

Chattanooga is enjoying a robust movement to plan developments in a number of downtown neighborhoods, and there is good reason to believe that well designed development should be welcomed. The opposite is also true, that bad or poorly designed development should not be welcomed, especially if it seriously degrades the existing neighborhood. In the case of a sought after rezoning ...
