The women’s basketball team picked up their first win of the post-season with a 49-45 victory over Central Christian College Thursday morning in Haviland, KS. With today’s win, the Warriors have improved to 11-12 on the season.
“It was great for the team to get this win,” said Head Coach Robby Bollinger. “We had a huge 4th quarter! The CU men’s team started chanting and the atmosphere in the gym shifted! We went on a run with Katie hitting a huge three and then Skylar hitting two big jump shots late! Belle and Kim were able to ice it late at the free throw line!”
This back-and-forth game was close throughout. The Warriors took a 22-17 lead into the half with a terrific defensive performance. The tightly contested contest continued through the third quarter with the Saints stiffening their defensive effort to end the quarter all tied at 29-29.
Starting the fourth quarter Calvary gained some much-needed momentum and finished a true team effort defensively and offensively. The final score was 49-45. Up next, the Warriors are back tomorrow in the MCCC Conference Tournament semi-finals. They will face Ozark Christian College at 6 pm.
