Good morning. Vanderbilt’s women’s bowling team took home first place in the Hawk Flight Invite in Egg Harbor, New Jersey, over the weekend. The team will conclude its regular season in two weeks when it hosts the Columbia 300 Music City Classic in Smyrna.
The baseball team beat Houston by a 9-4 score to salvage one win in three games in Minute Maid Park in Houston. With the victory, Tim Corbin is now Vanderbilt’s all-time winningest baseball coach, surpassing longtime skipper Roy Mewbourne (1979-2002.) Vanderbilt is now 10-3 on the season.
The women’s golf team finished in a tie for 11th in the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate at Hilton Head Island, 35 shots behind champion Alabama.
The second-ranked men’s golf team completed the first round of the Querencia Cabo Intercollegiate on Sunday in a tie for 11th, 20 shots behind leader Oklahoma State.
Off the West End
There will be one team from Nashville in the NCAA Tournament. Lipscomb is dancing for the first time ever (see what I did there?)
Brentwood Academy won its fourth consecutive state title in boys’ basketball, with Darius Garland scoring 35 points.
Romeo Langford scored 17 points as New Albany beat Floyd Central to win its sectional and move on to the round of 16 in the Indiana high school state tournament.
Kobe Bryant won an Oscar. Huh.
Phil Mickelson won on the PGA Tour for the first time since 2013.
Radford’s final possession was objectively bad, but the Highlanders beat Liberty 55-52 on a buzzer-beater to get to the tournament. You know what this means? That’s right, Vanderbilt beat an NCAA Tournament team. We can make it official.
