DAHLONEGA, GA – The North Georgia women's soccer team is set to host a Lumpkin County YMCA night this Wednesday when the Lady Saints play host to Anderson University in the final non-conference game of the regular season.

In a brand new partnership with the Lumpkin County YMCA, the department of athletics at North Georgia is set to host the first of many YMCA nights with the youth of Dahlonega.

Wednesday's contest will also serve as Senior Night for the five North Georgia players in their final season of competition at the collegiate level. Kirsten Ross, Danielle Brannan, Emily Dover, Natalie Douglass and Sara Kate Rogers make up the most successful women's soccer class in school history and will be honored immediately following the game against the Trojans.

Following the senior festivities, the Lady Saints will hand out free posters and hold an autograph session for the youth of Lumpkin County to meet the players and interact with the 13th-ranked team in the country.

North Georgia is looking to pack the complex this weekend when women's soccer plays host to Armstrong Atlantic on Saturday afternoon for a chance to claim the program's first-ever Peach Belt Conference championship. With a win against the Pirates, the Lady Saints will share the regular season title with Armstrong and hold the No. 1 seed in the upcoming PBC Tournament.
