Second chance for Paine

By  | 

Do you remember the Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day”?

Every time he woke up, he was forced to re-live the day before until he finally got it right.

The Paine Lady Lions are in the middle of their very own Groundhog Day.

The situation is eerily similar to last season.

Consider: the Lady Lions won their first ever SIAC conference tournament championship last season with a win in the title game over Fort Valley State.

They did the same this year.

Last season they had to face Henderson State in the first round of the NCAA Division II tournament in Arkansas.

Guess who their first round opponent is this time around? That's right. It's Henderson State once again.

The Lady Lions travel to Arkadelphia, Arkansas to face Henderson in Friday’s first round.
