Sports weekend wrap-up
The last weekend in February was packed with Flames sports after a long week of cold, snowy days. The baseball and softball teams were both on the road taking on the University of West Georgia, the tennis teams went to Georgia to take on Emmanuel College and the men and women's basketball teams finished up their regular seasons at home for Lee this weekend.
The Lee baseball team went to the University of West Georgia on Saturday and had a double header on Sunday. The Flames lost their first matchup 4-3, which set the tone for the whole weekend. The Flames went on to lose both games in the doubleheader on Sunday against West Georgia as they went 0-3 this weekend. The Flames remain winless on the road and their overall record is 11-4-1.
The Flames take on Tennessee Temple March 3 and then travel to West Alabama for two games this upcoming weekend.
The Lee softball team also went to the University of West Georgia this weekend for a three-game series. The Lady Flames, like baseball, lost their first game of the series.
