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...

On Feb. 21 seated in a Knoxville Civic Auditorium chair that was covered by scratchy fabric, I experienced vicariously a period in history by which I have long been fascinated. That evening, I was able to hear Eva Schloss, stepsister and childhood friend to Anne Frank, speak about her experience in hiding and as a prisoner of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Schloss, 87, came from her home in London to visit Knoxville as part of an event sponsored by the Knoxville Jewish Community, Tennessee Holocaust Commission and East Tennessee Foundation. The evening began with spoken tributes to Schloss given by the mayors of Knoxville City and Knox County as well as the head of Stanford Eisenberg Knoxville Jewish Day School (KJDS), which were followed by a group of three young KJDS students who sang “Ani Ma’amin” a cappella, the...

One of Knoxville’s little treasures is the Blue Plate Special hosted by WDVX (89.9 FM), and on Feb. 17 Maryville College was a part of that treasure. Broadcasted live, the Blue Plate Special is a Monday through Saturday music performance, hosted by the WDVX station at noon. Usually held at the Knoxville Visitor Center, the Clayton Center for the Arts was able to host this event as part of the Blue Plate Special Road Show.

Piedmont College, home of the Lions, is located in North Georgia. Currently, their win/loss record is at 7-3.
