Stopping slumping Georgia Southern

Struggling opponent
While the Mountaineers have had their struggles of late, they couldn’t ask for a better opponent than the Eagles at this time of the season, who have lost four straight and have won only once in their last eight games.

Quite the opposite of their men’s program, the Georgia Southern women have struggled to win games and sit at the bottom of the conference with only one Sun Belt win.

Next woman up
With senior forward Maryah Sydnor nursing an injury sustained against Texas State, the team may be short their best player.

Sophomore forward Mia Marshall will likely be asked to take on extra minutes if Sydnor can’t go.

Senior forward Katie Mallow is another player who will have to take on some of the scoring load if Sydnor is out, and with her 3-point shooting skills, she has shown that she is capable of just that.

Our Goal

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
