To Start off, PLN extends its deepest condolences to the friends, family, and loved ones of a recent Lion graduate, Britney Stevens. Ms. Stevens passed away at the way too young age of 22 due to an automobile accident in Mississippi. I do not want to get into details, but all I know is that it seems we have had a very bad string of very young Lions who have lost their lives in automobile accidents. I was relatively new to campus but I remember when we had 2 Chi Omega members killed in a tragic accident. Britney was a native of nearby Paris, about 40 miles northeast of Commerce and had graduated from TAMUC after transferring from Paris Junior College. She was in the Honors College, a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority, and was a financial analyst for Raytheon in Greenville. We offer our deepest sympathies to her family.
Both the Lady Lions and Lions play tonight at the Fieldhouse, taking on old time rival Texas A&M-Kingsville. This will be a telling game for both teams. Will the Men recover from a disappointing setback, and can the Ladies build on their huge win from the previous game? This game has implications for both, and it is against a big rival.
