Mercer Wins First Round

Lady Titan Catherine Claunch goes up strong in the paint during Mercer’s 49-48 victory over Southwestern.

The Lady Titans broke their two year tradition of losing in the first round of the 12th Region Tournament Monday night in a game that went down to the last shot. After losing to Monticello in the 2009-10 season and to Garrard County in the 2010-11 season, Mercer defeated the Lady Warriors of Southwestern, 49-48.

The first quarter, just like most of the game, went back and forth between to two teams. Mercer and Southwestern exchanged the lead six times in the opening eight minutes before going into the second quarter tied at 14-14.
