The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga softball team has scheduled its fall intrasquad game for 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Jim Frost Stadium, but first — at 11 — the Mocs will enjoy their ring ceremony for winning the 2019 Southern Conference tournament championship. It was the program's 14th, and many of the players who shared in it are back and will be playing in the Blue-Gold game. Fans are invited to the celebration and the 2020 season preview and then a free cookout hosted by the Lady Moc RBI Club.

 

Soccer

* The Covenant College women's soccer team scored three times in the last nine minutes while beating Berea 4-1 in their USA South game Thursday in Kentucky. Kyra Duble and Kailey Burrell each netted two goals for the Lady Scots (5-4-2, 3-0-1), and Lizzy Hightower and Addy Cronan assisted on Duble's scores. Her first one was at 1:32. Covenant led 25-9 in shots, 12-4 in shots on goal.

* Tennessee Wesleyan won twice in Appalachian Athletic Conference soccer Wednesday at Kentucky Christian, 6-0 in the women's game and 2-1 for the NAIA's 23rd-ranked Bulldogs. For the Lady Bulldogs (10-2, 7-1), Siobhan Patterson scored twice, Helen Lium Nyhus had a goal and the only assist and Brook Biddle, Julia Ruiz Vargas and Chloe Rootes also scored. The Wesleyan men (10-2-2, 5-1-1) got a first-half goal from Kyle Wynne, assisted by Ben Timms, and the ultimate winner from George Green at 73:01.

Volleyball

* The second-year Chattanooga State volleyball team lost 3-0 at home Thursday to NJCAA Division II's fifth-ranked Catawba Valley from North Carolina. The set scores were 25-15, 25-15, 25-11.
