Lady Eagles Thank Community for Support During Run

Main Content

On behalf of our staff, families, and the Lady Eagle basketball team, I want to thank the people of Hattiesburg, surrounding communities, the Southern Miss faithful, and our booster club, The Wings, for giving us such tremendous support during our amazing run in the Women's National Invitational Tournament (WNIT).

You helped us make history in Southern Miss Lady Eagle basketball by cheering us on to the most wins in postseason play and a spot in the WNIT Elite 8. In our game with Michigan, you set a new attendance record of 5,480!

We appreciate so many who purchased extra tickets and gave them to different youth groups in our community. You enabled them to enjoy the experience of watching exciting basketball, and you gave and sacrificed for a special group of young ladies, the Lady Eagles. You helped us live a dream and make history at Southern Miss.

Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope you'll continue to support Lady Eagle basketball. See you next year for an exciting 2015-2016 season.
