Lady Bobcats hoping to build on last year’s success
The volleyball season may be over for the Georgia Northwestern Lady Bobcats, but the court action is just starting to heat up.
The Navy-and-silver have been gearing up for the 2018-2019 basketball season, which began this past Saturday against one-time region rival Southern Crescent Tech.
Head coach David Stephenson said this year’s squad might contain the best overall collection of talent, top to bottom, that the Lady Bobcats have had since the program moved it base to Rossville several years ago.
“I think we might end up being better than we were last year in a lot of ways,” he said. “The only thing that we are really lacking right now is size, but I think we’re going to make up for it in a lot of other areas. We have some really legitimate players. How quickly they all come together, I don’t know, but I’m pretty excited from what I’ve seen so far in practice.”
Georgia Northwestern will return three players from last year’s team that climbed as high as No. 6 in the USCAA Division II national polls and finished the year at 11-8. Hannah Carr (
will be back to play both at shooting guard and on the wing. Stephenson said Carr is one of the team’s most improved players since the summer and she will be counted on even more for production in her sophomore campaign.
Mia Clark ( fresh off a season of volleyball with the Lady Bobcats, will return to the backcourt as both a point guard and shooting guard. Clark will serve as a team captain in her sophomore season.
The Georgia Northwestern Lady Bobcats are looking to improve on last year’s 11-win season that saw them briefly crack the top 10 in the USCAA’S national Division II poll.
