Belles to face Olivet Saturday

Brennan, Kevin | Friday, December 3, 2004

Saint Mary’s will look to return to its recent winning ways Saturday.

The Belles travel to Olivet, Michigan to take on the Olivet Comets at 3 p.m. at the Upton Center.

Saint Mary’s will attempt to rebound from Wednesday’s disappointing loss to Albion. In that game, the Belles led at half, but watched the game slip away as Albion mounted a 23-4 second half run to secure the victory.

Before the loss, Saint Mary’s had been hot, winning its three previous games. The Belles defeated Manchester College and won twice last weekend at the Knox College Classic. Saint Mary’s was never really challenged in any of the three games.

Olivet, a rival member of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association, should pose a stiff challenge for the Belles. The Comets, under coach Deanna Richard, have started the year with a 4-1 record. Most recently, the team won the Comet Classic by defeating Division II opponent Northwood 64-49 on Sunday.
