Boiling Springs, N.C. - As part of the 2012 Alumni Day festivities hosted by the Gardner-Webb women's basketball program on Saturday, February 18th, the Runnin' Bulldogs will recognize Fredia Lawrence King and Ruth Hammond Bailey prior to the 5 p.m. tip-off with UNC Asheville in Paul Porter Arena.

Lawrence King will be honored with the retiring of her No. 21 jersey in the rafters of Paul Porter Arena.  The 2002 Gardner-Webb Athletics Hall of Fame Honoree played from 1988-92 and was a three-time All-South Atlantic Conference selection.  Lawrence King, who finished her career as the program's leading scorer and rebounder, still holds those marks today with her 2,201 career points and her 1,220 career rebounds.

Hammond Bailey will be honored as this year's Gardner-Webb women's basketball Distinguished Alumnus of the Year. Hammond Bailey, who played for Gardner-Webb from 2000-04 and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with teacher licensure, is currently a 10th grade English teacher at South Mecklenburg High School.  She is married to Brennan Bailey, a 2005 graduate of Gardner-Webb, and has been a very active member of Carmel Baptist Church over the last six years.

Gardner-Webb invites all of its women's basketball alumni, players and coaches, to come out for the game on Saturday, February 18th.

During halftime of the women's basketball contest versus Asheville, all the alumni will be recognized, for not only their time spent at Gardner-Webb University, but also for their constant support and contributions to the women's basketball and university family as a whole.

Make plans to attend now, as it will be the final double-header of the season for the women and men's basketball teams.

For more information, or if you plan to attend, contact assistant coach and alumnus Brooke Wilkinson at bwilkinson@gardner-webb.edu or at (704) 406-4633.
