Taylor Hunter led the Warriors with 36 points, and 11 steals as the team pushed their winning streak to five straight with a 71-36 victory over Union College on Saturday night in Lincoln, Nebraska. Hunter hit seven three’s on the night which does put her in the record books for most three-point baskets in one game. “You will see Taylor break more records in the next few years,” Calvary Assistant Coach Kay Krahn said.
“We don’t talk about wins and losses but rather playing to a standard,” Warrior Head Coach Tressa Shoemaker said as the Warriors improve to 5-1 on the season. “We’re not as concerned with wins in a row but how many games in a row we execute to our standards. We did that in part offensively tonight by shooting 58% from the field, but we struggled at times defensively.”
The Warriors came into the game on the heels of an emphatic NCCAA win over Champion Christian College on Tuesday in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Union College came into the game with a young team that is showing steady improvement under Coach Ron Dodds.
Calvary stormed out of the gates with a 21-7 lead in the first quarter. The Warriors pushed the tempo with multiple fast-break layups to spark a 17-0 run in the second quarter as The Warriors extended the lead to 36-7. From there, Union could never recover as the Warriors went on for a 71-36 win. Calvary got great production from Anna Davis with 15 points on the night and from Anna Holloway who added 10 points and nine assists.
