Gaffney, SC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/26/2012 -- In Gaffney, SC. the Limestone Saints women's lacrosse team is having an amazing season. Although they have never won the national championship the Limestone Saints' head coach Scott Tucker appears to be encouraged by their performances as they head into the 2012 Conference Carolinas Tournament this coming weekend.

Last Saturday's 21-2 home victory over Converse means that the 4th ranked Saints completed the whole of the regular season Conference Carolinas Championship undefeated which sets them up nicely to attack the Conference Carolinas Tournament with optimism. The format of the Conference Carolinas Tournament means that it would take a win in the semi-final and then final to make the NCAA Tournament.

After Saturday's comprehensive win coach Scott Tucker recently told the Spartanburg Herald-Journal that "Everybody played well today for themselves and for the seniors. He went on to add that "It was an all-round encouraging day for the upcoming tournaments." The Limestone Saints host Newberry on Wednesday in a non-conference class game before the Conference Carolinas Tournament gets under way at Queens University in Charlotte on April 21st.

Since a narrow 11-10 defeat to top ranked Rollins back in February the Saints have gone onto record 12 straight wins including the first 4 game winning streak by at least 20 goals in the programs history. If the Saints manage to win the Conference Carolinas Tournament this weekend they would have the advantage of playing the NCAA semi-final game on home turf, which would likely help to extend their amazing action packed season just a little longer.
