The Brenau Golden Tigers showed significant growth in a short period of time with a plethora of new players. The 2017 Fall class holds nine freshmen.
Sophomore Patience Thurmond said, “It felt amazing to win our first conference game of the season. Playing with my teammates this last week really has inspired us because the freshmen have stepped up and contributed so much to this team.” The Golden Tigers still have the remainder of the regular season to finish before conference rounds start up. Brenau, who is 2-9 overall and 1-0 in the AAC, will travel to Bluefield (Va.) College on Friday for a 6:30 pm match.
