As the women of Limestone College in Gaffney, South Carolina prepared to host the first two rounds of the NCAA Division II Southeast Region Tournament, a former Union Knight is hoping to help the team improve upon last year’s tournament performance, when the Saints lost to Cal Baptist, 85-67, in the national semifinal game.
This year, the undefeated and 2nd ranked Saints have junior transfer Peyton Bockholt on the roster. Bockholt, a 5-11 forward, was a Third Team All-Region selection last season, leading Kirkwood Community College to a 31-6 record. The 2013 Union High School graduate missed her senior season in basketball, sidelined with an ACL tear.
Peyton has played in 26 of the Saints’ 30 games, averaging three points and three rebounds per game. Results of Limestone College’s game(s) were not available as this edition of The Progress Review went to press.
