Avenging Angels Celebrates Championships

Meredith College athletics opened the year with a strong fall season that included a fifth USA South Regular Season title for the soccer program as the co-East Division Champion. The athletics department celebrated this honor along with seven other championship teams during halftime of the January 13 basketball game.

Athletics Director Jackie Myers recognized the success of the following teams with the hanging of a new series of championship banners in Weatherspoon Gymnasium. The College highlighted the recent successes while honoring each of the 23 teams recognized on the banners.

Championship Teams Highlighted
2015 Cross Country
2016, 2017 Lacrosse
2015, 2016, 2017 Soccer
2017 Softball
2016 Volleyball

Basketball and indoor track seasons are well underway with each of the spring Avenging Angels teams braving the final weeks of winter as they prepare for competition.

Club golf joined the slate of Meredith sport offerings beginning September 2017 and will continue for a two-year period thanks to generous donor contributions. Myers oversees the club program, which has potential to develop into the College’s ninth varsity sport.
