Basketball Team Captures Region 19 Crown
According to Head Coach Mike Tenaglia,
this was a good year for women’s basketball at Mercer, as the
Lady Vikes captured the Region 19 title for the seventh time in eight
years. The title was particularly sweet because the road was tough this
season. With a 21-12 final record, the women improved their game as
the year progressed, worked extremely well as a team, and made their
college and their coach proud.
