Go Petrels Athletics Update: November 22-28

Sophomore Savannah LeGate was named Southern Athletic Association Player of the Week after leading the women’s basketball team to wins over Piedmont and LaGrange to sweep the USA South/SAA Classic.

LeGate wins SAA Women’s Basketball Player of the Week award

The SAA office named Oglethorpe sophomore center Savannah LeGate the SAA Women’s Basketball Player of the Week on Monday. It marked the second career SAA weekly award for LeGate and her first of the 2018-19 season. LeGate proved instrumental in the team’s victories over Piedmont, Covenant and LaGrange over the course of the week.

The Emory Classic was unkind to men’s basketball over the weekend, as the Stormy Petrels dropped both games. Sophomore Will Koch led the team in points in a loss to Randolph Macon, and a ranked Maryville team proved too much in the second showdown.

The result dropped the Petrels to 2-3 on the season.

Tom Inungu, men’s basketball, and LeGate were named SAAC Male and Female Athlete of the Week by their peers in the Oglethorpe Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
