MC Scots Softball season is starting off strong

Posted by on Mar 8, 2017 in Feature Slider, Sports | 0 comments

The MC Scots Softball team has kicked off one of the best starts in MC history. The ladies came flying out of the gate, and that has brought them to a current record of 9-3. This is the best start the team has ever had under head coach Leah Kelley. The Lady Scots played two doubleheaders with two games on both Feb. 24 and Feb. 25. The first day had the team going to Cary, North Carolina for the Grand Slam Tournament to face N.C. Wesleyan, followed by a match-up against William Peace. The first game looked as though the outcome would be different due to the hot start of the Scots. The active bats and errors made by N.C. Wesleyan led to an early 4-0 lead in the first three innings. The momentum seemed to flip around the...

MC Softball Dominates the Pre-Season

Posted by on Feb 22, 2017 in Sports | 0 comments

The MC Scots softball team comes into the 2017 season looking to capitalize on where they left off in 2016. The team finished 25-17 last season, losing in the USA South Tournament to Averett University and Ferrum College, respectively. The main focus of the off-season was to finish what was started. Looking at their pre-season schedule, the Lady Scots are off to achieving their goal with little stutter-steps in between. The ladies traveled to Memphis, Tenn. for a four game tournament against two teams that they will not see during their regular season competition. They competed against Westminister College and Rhodes College. The offense came out strong and surprised Westminister. The ball jumped off the bats all the way from the first pitch to the time the last out was made. The Scots won three of the four games,...

Until Next Time: Recap of Volleyball Season

Posted by on Dec 7, 2016 in Sports | 0 comments

Coming off a previous eighteen-win season, head coach Kandis Schram looked to come into the 2016 campaign and build off what her 2015 Lady Scots accomplished. What Schram got instead was another 18-win season, far superseding preseason expectations. The immediate dominance of players, like freshman right side hitter Brianne Sidner, and continued consistency of the rest of the team got the Lady Scots back into the post season, to no one in the USA South Conference’s surprise. However, a surprise instead came from the order in which the games were won. The season did not kick off how most were expecting. Schram’s team stumbled initially out of the gate, dropping three consecutive matches after winning the home opener against Tennessee Wesleyan College. The offense would begin to show small flaws in fluidity and rhythm, which led to some of...

Scots Volleyball team dominates on Senior Day

Posted by on Nov 16, 2016 in Sports | 0 comments

As the only four seniors on the Lady Scots roster took the court this past weekend, they looked to lock home court advantage for the first round of the USA South tournament. Danielle Gehr, Kori Jacot, Abrianna Jones and Julia Vineyard walked in to their Senior Day double header wanting to put a stamp on their Scots legacy, and they did just that by taking consecutive matches and moving to 17-14 on the season (10-5 in conference play). Maryville walked into the morning sets against Lagrange on a two match winning streak and kept the momentum going into the postseason. The offense seemed stronger than usual, taking the match 3-1. Despite the outcome, the Lady Scots went for the sweep. Hope ended when they dropped the third set 14-25. Nia Haller had one of her best overall games, delivering...

MC volleyball team drops two despite big performances

Posted by on Oct 26, 2016 in Sports | 0 comments

The Lady Scots are coming out of a rough weekend due to two consecutive losses in two days. Maryville still holds a .500 record with an overall of 13-13, but look to turn in the opposite direction going to the late stretch of the season. The Scots tried to shake off a loss in their last matchup against Piedmont; however, it seemed like something was missing. The ladies wanted to come out and make a statement and turn the tide in their double header on October 15. Maryville started out the morning facing off against Wittenberg University, a scrappy group out of Springfield, Ohio. It seemed as though the Scots weren’t ready in the opening set, dropping it emphatically 25-15. Maryville began to wake up, but couldn’t find their rhythm. Offense was the glaring weakness in this match due...
