After a tremendous run through the tournament the Lady Scots came up one game short of the finals in the AAC tournament losing 1-0 to Union College today in Kingsport, TN.
What started off as a long shot at the beginning of the week looked mighty close to a run of destiny as the Lady Scots charged their way through opponents in the AAC tournament. Behind great pitching, defense and timely hitting the Lady Scots fought their way through the #1, 4 and 9 seed to advance to the semi-finals against the #5 seeded Union Bulldog who they had split with earlier this year.
Scoreless going into the 5th inning the Lady Scots had several chances to push a lead run across the plate but couldn't do it. Union finally tallied a run and the Lady Scots couldn't answer, losing 1-0 in 7 innings.
"I don't know how you could ask much more out of these kids." Said Coach Russell, "they fought and battled all week and I'm really proud of them." The Lady Scots finish the year 18-19 overall and (6-10) in conference play.
