Saints Set to Open 2009 Season Next Month

The North Georgia Softball team will open the 2009 season on February 14th against Mars Hill College at the new Haines & Carolyn Hill Stadium.  The stadium will feature 225 stadium-style chairback seats and a state of the art press box.

The Saints enter the 2009 season with high expectations after finishing 2nd in the Peach Belt Conference Tournament and runner-up in their first ever appearance at the NCAA Division II Regional Tournament.  The Saints finished the season ranked 12th in the NFCA Division II polls.

Last season, the Saints posted a mark of 38-15. Head Coach Mike Davenport returns for his 9th season, after accumulating his 300th win during the 2008 season.
