(Walnut, CA) With the change of the clock and the calendar, the 2019-20 Mt. SAC Women's Basketball Season gets underway at the annual Linda G. Smith Memorial Mt. SAC Women's Basketball Tip-Off Classic.

The eight-team tourney will run from Friday through Sunday (Nov. 1-3) and will begin with four games on Friday, culminating with the Mounties playing San Diego Mesa at 8:00 pm.

Mt. SAC had previously won 13 consecutive tourneys through 2017, but fell in the last two championship games.

This years' team is comprised of four returners, featuring All-South Coast Conference players Lauryn Manns and Aujane Mayes, along with guards Alexis Sanchez and Remy Hare.

Eleven talented freshmen will join the four returners and includes Taylor Shelby, Allyah Cartajena, Mina Guevera-Goss, Ashton Hudson, Hope Kakihara and Skylarr Little.

"This should be a fun year with all the youth we have", replied Mt. SAC Women's Basketball Coach Brian Crichlow. "I'm looking forward to watching these young ladies grow within the traditions and expectations our program bestows."

Mt. SAC, 21-9 last season, will hit the road after the Tip-Off Classic and play in four tournaments before the end of the 2019 calendar year.

With high expectation, the group is definitely up for the challenge and ready to continue the traditions of the Women's Basketball program.
