**********Lindsay Gauldin, from Northwest Guilford High School, and one of the top players on the Guilford College women’s basketball team, re-injured her knee and we hope that she will be back at near 100% this Saturday….Lindsay left the game in anguishing pain and tried to return, but not sure how much more she was able to play/do on Monday night…I remember a Lindsay Gauldin injury back when she was in high school, in a game with Northwest at Southwest Guilford, where Lindsay had to the leave the game in tears, but she came back and helped take down the Southwest Guilford Cowgirls on that Saturday afternoon…Lindsay will be back, we just hope she can return full-strength and get her game back the way she wants it to be…
Also saw action tonight from Kristen Roberts, the young freshman for Guilford, from Southeast Guilford High School…Roberts was part of the SEG State Championship team last season and this season, coming into tonight’s/Monday’s game, Kristen Roberts was leading the Guilford College women’s basketball team in scoring at around 13 ppg….**********
