The final minutes couldn’t go any slower for the Flagler women’s basketball team, but when the clock hit zero, they knew Feb. 20 will be a day to remember.

After winning only two games (four overall) last season, the women’s basketball team clinched a Peach Belt Conference playoff berth for the first time ever. The team is having a turnaround season, owning a conference record of 10-8 (13-11 overall). With two games left, they have the opportunity to have a winning season for the first time in five years, according to Head Coach Lang-Montgomery.

Pink is here to stay! Flagler College women’s basketball gives a helping hand in raising breast cancer awareness by hosting the Think Pink Event.

The Think Pink Event was created to raise awareness for breast cancer and to receive donations for those who are diagnosed with the disease. This year, all the money raised will be given to Unity Outreach Inc., a local organization in St. Augustine, Fla., that helps families through the process of a breast cancer diagnosis.

With the season rapidly approaching, head coach Erika Lang Montgomery has her team in high gear. The Women’s basketball team has been preparing for the last few months for a season that could very well be one of their best in the Peach Belt Conference.

Coach Lang Montgomery feels that this could be the year the team makes a strong argument in conference play and makes it to the post season Conference tournament. The team has a very strong core group of girls with eight returners and five newcomers including three seniors Jen Knurek, Arianna Roper, and Rachel Brown. The team has not had a winning season as a member of the Peach Belt since they joined four years ago from the NAIA Florida Sun Conference. But that isn’t stopping the team this year, they are using that as motivation.

Seniors Adrienne Donelson and Tierra Ford, of the Flagler College women’s basketball team, finished their final season with satisfaction and aspirations for the future.

Donelson may be soft spoken but is not timid when it comes to the court. She is a player full of energy which was seen numerous times during her four year career with Flagler. As a starter for the team, she was a great asset in scoring and in rebounds.
