Announcement from our AD, Scott Little:
Our Football Blazers play at home tomorrow night versus #18 Bethel University for a Western Division Mid-South Conference Championship, as well as the possibility of our first ever national playoff berth!!
What a huge opportunity – we need to pack the stands for a Green Out (wear as much green as you can find) and help our guys clinch the first outright division title in program history. The winner of the game automatically secures the Western Division crown, and we also have a shot at a national playoff berth if we finish in the top 20 of the next national ranking. While we don’t control the rankings, everything else is in our hands, so do your part by coming out, bringing friends, cheering loud and encouraging our guys. Kickoff is at 6:00 pm and gates open at 4:00 pm. Ours is a talented, exciting team playing a quality opponent and you’ll want to be part of this historic night at Newell Field.
Also playing at home this weekend are our Men’s and Women’s Basketball squads, beginning tonight with match ups against crosstown rival Tougaloo College. The Women tipoff at 6:00 pm followed by the Men at 8:00 pm. The Women play again tomorrow versus Harris Stowe State at 1:00 pm in Rugg Arena.
Join me in congratulating our Volleyball team for setting a school record with their 26th win of the season, set yesterday versus Coastal Georgia at the SSAC Conference Championships in Montgomery, AL. The ladies have a second pool match today at 12:30 pm versus Southern Wesleyan, and then await their final seeding for bracket play as they reach for a SSAC Championship. Well done.
Finally, SSAC Conference awards for Fall sports have been announced this week and student-athletes from all of our Fall teams have earned recognition. You can learn about these awards by sport, as well as find all the Belhaven Athletics information you need at http://blazers.belhaven.edu/index.aspx
