Spring sports have officially arrived on Lookout Mountain. Although, the weather has been anything but spring-like. The mountain received anywhere from 6-8 inches of snow last week. The snow forced one postponement (basketball), but other sports went off without a hitch.
The women's basketball team went 1-1 on the week as they snapped a four-game skid at Agnes Scott. The men's basketball team fell to Piedmont in their only contest. Both tennis teams fell to Birmingham Southern on Saturday, while the softball team opened their season with a pair of losses at Berry.
BY THE NUMBERS:
53.6: The shooting percentage for the women's basketball team in a 71-58 victory at Agnes Scott on Saturday. It was a season-high for the Scots and the first time this season they have shot at least 50 percent from the floor in a game.
13: Number of points for men's basketball junior Teron Ferguson, which tied a career-high, in the loss to Piedmont. Ferguson scored 13 points against Birmingham Southern earlier this season to set his new career best. Additionally, Ferguson made and attempted his first two collegiate 3-pointers.
4: The number of combined hits for softball sophomore Madison Quirk in Saturday's doubleheader at Berry. Quirk went 4-for-6 in the two games, including a 3-for-3 effort in the first contest.
The men's and women's basketball teams will conclude their regular seasons this week with three games. Huntingdon will visit Lookout Mountain on Wednesday (women at 5:30, men at 7:30) and Senior Night will take place on Saturday vs. LaGrange (women at 2, men at 4)... The baseball team will get its season underway on Tuesday when they face Bates College in Rome, Ga., at 5 p.m. ... Saturday will be a busy day on campus as baseball hosts Milligan for a doubleheader starting at noon, softball plays Mount St. Joseph at home beginning at 1 p.m., and the aforementioned basketball home games.
