Saturday, August 12, 2017

ANCOUVER, B.C. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s basketball team held off Trinity Western Friday night for a 75-69 win over the Spartans at the Langley Events Center.

 

Arianne Whitaker (Cincinnati, Ohio) led all scorers with 18 points making nine from the field on 13 attempts and four rebounds.

Lakelyn Bouldin (Spencer, Tenn.) added 13 points with a pair of 3-pointers while Brooke Burns (Gadsden, Ala.) and Aryanna Gilbert (Pulaski, Tenn.) each added 10 points. Gilbert had a team-high eight rebounds and Ashlyn Wert (Lancaster, Pa.) had seven rebounds and two blocked shots.

 

The Mocs got out to a 10-4 lead but the Spartans chipped away and trailed just 23-19 at the end of the first quarter. Chattanooga fell behind twice in the second quarter, outscored 16-12 and the teams were tied 35-35 at intermission.

 

The Mocs trailed 47-44 midway through the third quarter but came back to take a 54-47 lead on a 10-0 with 3:24 to play in the frame. Trinity Western got to within six points at the end of the period, 61-55.

 

The teams played the fourth quarter even, each scoring 14 points. Chattanooga led a balanced attack with six players scoring while the Spartans had five players chip in.

 

The Mocs will take on VK U17 Saturday evening at Sentinel Secondary School. The game is set to tip off at 10:00 p.m. EDT. Follow the Mocs on Twitter @GoMocsWBK.

 

 

A DAY OUT AT GROUSE MOUNTAIN

The Mocs enjoyed a day on Grouse Mountain. The team road the tram up to the top where many activities were available.

 

After arriving at the top and a quick stop to view the map, the team followed the painted bear claws on the trail and found a Lumberjack competition taking place. Many student-athletes and staff climbed to the top of the mountain while others road the ski lift to reach the crest.

 

The team was treated to an up close look at a pair of orphaned grizzly bears. Coola and Grinder were separated from the crowd by electric wire and seemed mostly disinterested in the throng of photo-snapping onlookers.

 

Unfortunately, smoke from nearby forest fires obscured the view from the top of the mountain. However, the Mocs enjoyed the day.

 

On Saturday the team will go to the Capilano River Gorge and walk across the suspension bridge.
