Season Preview

The Limestone College Lady Saints basketball squad is anticipating

the start of another exciting basketball season. The Lady

Saints will look to build on last year and seek to improve on the

12-17 record of last season. In 2005-06 the Lady Saints advanced

to the quarterfinals of the CVAC tournament. Gone are Danielle

Vieira, Jodeana Pirtle, Ladovia Dukes, and Melissa DeVore.

However, Tiffany Jones, Shelly Robinson, Reagan Robins, Addie

Graves, Monica Adams, and Lauren Mitchell will bring a lot of

experience to the squad.

The Lady Saints also welcome five new additions to the team

this season: Melissa Hawkins, Blanca Gonzalez, Stephanie Munoz,

Lindsay Kyle and Ariel Lyons.

Guards

Limestone will look to redshirt junior Ariel Lyons from Brandon,

Florida to fill the void left by the graduation of Melissa De-

Vore at the point guard position. Lyons is capable of handling

these responsibilities. She has had a terrific pre-season and can

shoot the ball well.

Junior college transfer Blanca Gonzalez will also handle some

of the point guard responsibilities, along with another junior college

transfer, Stephanie Munoz.

The Wing

The Lady Saints have a lot of depth on the wing this season.

Tiffany Jones, a two-year starter, returns to lead the Lady Saints.

Jones, a junior from Greer, S.C., has had an outstanding career at Limestone. She is a terrific leader on the court

and will work hard everyday. Jones averaged 9.9 points per game

in 2005-06 and scored in double figures 16 times, including a career-high

26 in the CVAC quarterfinals at Anderson University

last season.

Senior Reagan Robins, a sharp shooter from Oklahoma City,

Okla., returns for the Lady Saints. She has improved her shooting,

as well as the rest of her game. Robins is coming off a highly

successful season in which she averaged 9.1 points per game. She

will provide the Lady Saints with experience, and as the lone senior,

will be a big contributor to the Lady Saints this season.

Shelly Robinson, a junior from Belmont, N.C., returns for the

Lady Saints. She has worked hard in the off season and will be a

key contributor for Limestone.

Joining these newcomers will be Lindsay Kyle, a junior college

transfer from Cecil Community College, who will log key minutes

this season. She joins the team after a successful junior college

career in which she averaged 14 points per game and led her team

to a 24-win season in 2005-06. She is athletic and can get to the

rim, making her a tough match-up for opposing defenders.

Stephanie Munoz comes to the Lady Saints from Lincoln Land

Senior Reagan Robins is third in the Limestone career and single seaosn record

books with her 51 three-pointers last season.

Community College. Munoz can shoot the ball effectively and her

solid play and scoring ability will enable her to fit in nicely for the


Junior guard Tiffany Jones is ranked No. 5 in Limestone’s NCAA Division

II record books with 158 career assists.


Season Preview

Lady Saints for the next two seasons.

Gonzalez, a junior from Neosho County Community College, is

a native of Chicago, Ill. She will share time on the wing. Gonzalez

will reunite with former JUCO teammate Robins and is a great addition

to the Lady Saints team. She has worked hard and looks to

provide quality minutes for the Lady Saints.

The Post

The Lady Saints also have the luxury of depth at the post this

season. Three letter winners return, including Honorable Mention

All-CVAC honoree Monica Adams. Adams, a junior from Bessemer

City, N.C., had a huge 2005-2006 campaign for the Lady Saints. She

averaged 13.6 points and 8.6 rebounds a contest for Limestone last

year. She has also improved on the defensive end for the Lady Saints

and looks to have another great season.

Also returning for the Lady Saints is sophomore Addie Graves,

from Columbia, S.C. Graves was well on her way to having a solid

freshman campaign before sitting out the second half of the season.

Lauren Mitchell, from Saluda, S.C., provided the Lady Saints

with a spark off the bench last year and is one of the most improved

players. She will continue to improve and provide the Lady Saints

with some key defense and rebounding.

Limestone looks to continue its improvements from last season

in 2006-07 with its returning veterans and talented newcomers.

Facilities

Limestone College has some of the finest facilities

in the Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference

and in NCAA Division II.

In October of 2005, Limestone College finished

construction and officially opened the new Physical

Education Center. The new facility offers

three classrooms, nine offices, locker rooms, Athletic

Training Education facilities, the state-ofthe-art

Watts Fitness Center, and a practice facility

for wrestling.

Located on Thompson Street near Limestone

Springs, the facility is the first new building

constructed on the Limestone campus since the

Timken Center was dedicated 30 years ago. The

Physical Education Center gives Limestone’s

Physical Education Center

recently accredited Athletic Training Education

Program the necessary space to meet the

accreditation standards of the Commission on

Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.

This will allow Limestone students to sit for the

National Athletic Trainers Association Board

of Certification Examination.

In addition to the new Athletic Training facilities,

the new PE Center houses a 3,900 squarefoot

weight training facility, the Watts Fitness

Center, a great asset to all of Limestone’s varsity

athletes as well as all other students, faculty,

and staff. Limestone’s wrestling team, which

Wrestling Room

Weight Room of the Watts Fitness Center

completed its inaugural season in 2004-2005, has a practice area and locker room in the new building, although the team

holds its matches in the Timken Center.

The Timken Center, built in 1976, is the center of the Athletic Department and will celebrate its 30th birthday this

school year. The building houses athletic offices, athletic training facilities, and classrooms.

The Timken Center also houses Timken Gym, a 1,500-seat arena

that hosts men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as volleyball

and wrestling matches.

Limestone’s Aquatic Center, a junior Olympic sized swimming

pool, is also located in the Timken Center. Home to the Saints and

Lady Saints swimming teams, the pool features an 800-square-foot

observation balcony, coupled with 2,500 square feet of deck space.

Facilities

Saints Field serves as the game field for lacrosse and soccer. The field was

completely resurfaced in the summer of 2004. During that renovation, an irrigation

system was installed and the field area was enclosed with netting and a brick

seating area.

Bob Prevatte Field was renovated in the spring of 2005. It is one of the best

baseball stadiums in the Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference. Beautifully

situated alongside the Limestone quarry, the field now features new dugouts, a

new backstop, new fencing, and a new equipment storage building.

The Emmie Evans Rector Tennis Center, remodeled in 2004, is also one of the

top facilities in the CVAC. It includes eight lighted tennis courts and a pavilion

that houses tennis offices, plus a clubhouse area for student-athletes.

Located between Bob Prevatte Field and the Emmie Evans Rector Tennis Center,

Lady Saints Field is one of the best conditioned softball playing fields in the

conference.

The Saints also enjoy the use of four practice fields which have all undergone

renovations since 2000, as well as a scenic cross country course that borders the

quarry and Limestone’s athletic fields. The course is utilized by all 18 varsity

sports and is a tremendous training tool for Limestone student-athletes.

Athletic Training

The Limestone Athletic Training Department

provides support to all 18 intercollegiate

sports at the College and features seven certified

athletic trainers on the staff.

The Athletic Training Department provides

risk management and injury prevention, assessment,

evaluation, and rehabilitation for

all varsity athletes at Limestone College. The

quality of personnel in the Athletic Training

Department is a major factor in the success of

Limestone’s athletic teams.

The Athletic Training Education Program

at Limestone is accredited by the Commission

on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education

(CAATE). Students who pursue this major

Limestone College

Limestone College was established in

1845 by Dr. Thomas Curtis and his son,

Dr. William Curtis, distinguished scholars

born and educated in England. Limestone

College was the first women’s college

in South Carolina and one of the

first in the United States.

In the late 1960’s, Limestone College

became fully coeducational. The campus

is a unique combination of history

and progress, with nine of our campus

buildings included on the National Register of Historic Places.

Since 1991, Limestone College has completed renovations of several

of its historic campus structures: the Montgomery Classroom

Building, Ebert Residence Hall, Carroll Fine Arts Building,

Hamrick Hall of Science, Eunice Ford Residence Hall, Dixie

Lodge Student Center, and Granberry Art Building.

While the College’s ties to the past are visible in the many historic

structures, these renovated facilities, along with the brand

new Physical Education Center opened in November of 2005, now

house the modern technology necessary to maintain Limestone’s

reputation as an outstanding liberal arts college.

Limestone College is an accredited, independent, coeducational,

four-year liberal arts institution chartered by the state of South

Carolina. Limestone is a non-denominational Christian college.

Our programs lead to a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science,

Bachelor of Social Work, Associate of Science or Associate of

Arts degree.

Today, Limestone College enrolls approximately 700 students

in its day program and approximately 2,800 in the Extended Campus,

which includes various sites throughout South Carolina and

Internet courses.

Limestone Athletics

At Limestone College, the Athletics Department is another

area that develops students’ minds, bodies, and spirits. The

Saints athletic program offers students more than just the

opportunity to win. The program’s flexibility, coupled with

Limestone’s smaller student body, offers the student-athletes

unparalleled opportunities to participate in team sports. In

fact, many students play two sports.

Like the College itself, the Saints athletics program has a

rich history and has experienced much success. Limestone

competed in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics

(NAIA) before becoming a National Collegiate Athletic

Association (NCAA) Division II

member in 1991. Today, 15 of Limestone’s

athletic teams compete in the Carolinas-

Virginia Athletics Conference, while

both swimming teams are affiliated with

the Bluegrass Mountain Conference and

wrestling competes as an independent.

Limestone helped pave the way for

collegiate lacrosse and swimming in the

South. The Saints fielded South Carolina’s

first collegiate lacrosse team in

1990. The swimming teams are the only

NCAA Division II swimming programs

in South Carolina and among the few in

the two Carolinas.

Over the years, the Saints baseball,

men’s basketball, men’s and women’s

golf, men’s and women’s lacrosse, softball,

men’s soccer, and men’s and women’s

tennis teams have all been ranked on

the national level. Twelve student-athletes

have gone on to play professionally in their sport, with

seven of those signing professional baseball contracts. The

Saints baseball program was started by two-time Cy Young

winner Gaylord Perry, a member of the Major League Baseball

Hall of Fame. Additionally, 105 Saints athletes have

earned All-American honors and eight have been named

Academic All-Americans.

The Saints have continued to improve each year. Last

season, the men’s and women’s lacrosse teams earned trips

to the NCAA Division II semifinals and won conference

tournament titles. The Saints and Lady Saints tennis teams

earned their first national rankings in school history, and

the cross country teams made their first appearances at the

NCAA regional in the fall. The men’s golf team also qualified

for the Atlantic Regional, while Brent Clausing became

the second wrestler in the two-year history of the program to

advance to the National Touranment.

Both the women’s basketball and volleyballs

teams saw huge turnarounds

last season. The Lady Saints basketball

squad 2005-06 finish of 12-17 was a

major improvement as the team struggled

with a 4-23 overall record in the

previous season. The volleyball team,

under new leadership, won the most

matches (19) since Limestone joined

the CVAC in 1998. This exceeds the

win total for the six prior seasons. In

addition, the nine regular season conference

victories in 2005 were the best

ever, along with the Lady Saints’ sixth

place finish.

In addition, 39 athletes earned All-

Conference honors in 2005-06.

In the fall of 2006, the volleyball

squad earned the regular season CVAC

championship with an 18-2 record. The

men’s soccer team also had a solid fall, as it won the conference

tournament championship and advanced to the Sweet

16 of the NCAA national tournament.

Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference

The Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference is a NCAA Division II athletic

conference made up of 12 teams from North Carolina and South Carolina.

These teams consist of: Anderson University, Barton College, Belmont

Abbey College, Coker College, Converse College (Affiliate), Erskine College,

Lees-McRae College, Limestone College, Mount Olive College, Pfeiffer University,

Queens University of Charlotte, and St. Andrews Presbyterian College.

Each of the thirteen CVAC sports has a season-ending tournament that

leads to automatic NCAA qualification in Mens Basketball, Women’s Basketball, Softball, and Volleyball and NCAA regional

selection opportunities in Women’s Cross Country, Men’s Cross Country, Women’s Soccer, Men’s Soccer, Women’s Golf,

Men’s Golf, Women’s Tennis, Men’s Tennis, and Baseball.

Conference Commissioner, Dr. Alan Patterson says this about the conference, “The Carolinas Conference is recognized

regionally and nationally as a premier NCAA Division II conference which champions scholarship athletics working in concert

with student athlete’s committed to academic success.”

The CVAC has roots in the Old North State Conference formed in 1938. The name changed to the Carolinas Conference

with the first inclusion of South Carolina members, and in 1994 became the CVAC as Virginia membership was included

and championship play was shifted to NCAA Division II. Since 2003, no CVAC schools have been located in Virginia. Since

Virginia is no longer represented within the conference, a name change to “Conference Carolinas” was recommended and

will be implemented over the next year to begin officially for the 2006-2007 academic year.
