Lady 'Hawks heading west

November 17, 2003

Thomasville--The Thomas University Lady Night Hawks loaded up the bus and headed to the airport Monday with dreams of a national championship very much alive.

The Lady Night Hawks earned the school's first ever national tournament birth over the weekend by defeating Auburn-Montgomery 2-1 to claim the Region 13 title.  It is the first time any sports program from Thomas has advanced to the national tournament.

Thomas University will face Northwood-Florida Wednesday at 5:15pm ET in the first round of the NAIA Championships.

"It's a tough tournament with twenty of the best teams in the country.  We're going to see how well we can do. Hopefully we can bring home a national championship," Thomas head coach Eric Faulconer said.

 If the Night Hawks advance they'll face Concordia (Ore.) on Thursday at 5:30pm ET.
