Women: Appalachian and Charleston played a really close game until the final few minutes when Appalachian’s pressure finally got to Charleston. Appalachian was in control for much of the game, but could never really extend their lead in the first half. Charleston led by a point on one occasion, but Appalachian quickly regained the lead. For […]

February 20, 2013 No Comments by Charles

Appalachian has played some of its best defense in the last week or so, and they will need another effort like the last few games to hold off Charleston. The Cougars are a very interesting team this season. After two years of being well below average, the Cougars have found some momentum and find themselves […]

The Appalachian women hit the road for a one game road trip to Charleston on Friday evening. The Friday game is an oddity in SoCon play for both schools. Generally, the women’s teams play on Saturday and Monday, but this weekend, Appalachian will play a Friday evening  and Sunday afternoon game. Charleston enters the game […]

April 5, 2012 No Comments by Charles

Of the last five opponents Appalachian has played in baseball, four of them have had rain play a part in the games, whether it be a three games series or a single game midweek opponent. We can go back to the High Point game which was a complete rainout. The first game in the Elon […]

College of Charleston (SoCon Tournament)

February 26, 2012 No Comments by Charles

The Mountaineers will most likely be big underdogs in the first round of the tournament. Appalachian only won two games against the SoCon South all season long and was handled easily by the Cougars in Boone in mid-February. I am thinking Charleston will be favored by 9 points here. Line was posted with Appalachian being […]

So what has changed in a day? Everything. As expected, Elon lost big on the road at Davidson.

This was the beginning of a rough stretch of 5 games in 10 days for the Lady Mountaineers, and it started on the road in a gym the Mountaineers had not won in several seasons.
