The Columbia College basketball team hosted their last home game against Montreat College, Feb. 17 at 6:30 p.m.

Though the Koalas fought hard, they were not able to come out on top. They lost the game 67-75.

“This season can be described as a roller coaster. We have lost momentum and gained momentum. Now, we’re trying to gain momentum for the upcoming tournament,” Maria Chen, head basketball coach, said.

“I feel as a team we are getting better everyday. Our chemistry is better now than it was at the beginning of the season, although our record doesn’t show it,” Amber Sherrill, a first-year public health major, said.

This game was also senior night, so the seniors were recognized and given a basketball signed by all of their teammates. The seniors are Shahirah King-Dunson, Kinsley Hall and Jennifer Giles.

Dunson, #2, is an accounting major from Liberty, South Carolina., and she plans to continue her education in graduate school. Hall, #20, is a political science major from Aiken, South Carolina, and is planning to further her education at law school. Giles, #22, is an accounting majoring from Bluffton, South Carolina.

“This team has had the best chemistry since I’ve been here. When some teams are losing, you can tell in the locker room. This team does not have any problems in the locker room. It’s been really refreshing and nice to see,” said Coach Chen.

The Columbia College women’s basketball team finished their regular season against Milligan College, in Elizabethton, Tenn. on Feb. 20.  The fighting Koalas lost 56-69.
