The women’s basketball team was victorious 79-73 against Wesley on Saturday, Feb.15. This makes the Lady Cavs overall record as 12-11 and 11-3 in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference. Due to this win the Lady Cavs are still rated number one in the south division of the PAC.

With the Lady Cavs being outnumbered in inches while consequently being out rebounded, they were still able to use their speed and fast movement skills to overtake Wesley. The game against Wesley, “Was a big win for us because it will put us well on our way to the PAC championship,” freshman Hannah Welker said.

One of the highlights of the game was when Wesley’s star player, Cessa Bacon, fouled out of the game when she was out-rebounded by Stephanie Moritz. After this point, the Lady Cavs were easily able to sweep the rest of the game. However, “We are still getting out-rebounded, because Wesley was a tall team, but it is something that we are continuing to work on,” freshman Lauren Budweg said.

According to freshman Jackie Yoder, “The team came off a tough practice the day before, so we just wanted to prove to ourselves that we can win.”

Considering the high number of fouls from both teams, “Wesley was a physical team, and it was a good experience because we are going to be playing against other physical teams in the playoffs” Budweg said.

With junior guard Taryn Repici still injured, “The team is going to lack leadership but we are going to do fine,” Yoder said. Many of the members are still saddened by their injured team member. “It is a big loss for the team but if we play hard defense and run the offense we will do well,” Budweg said.

“This was a team win and everyone contributed and that is what is important,” said Budweg.

The Lady Cavs play their last regular season game at Eastern on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 1 p.m. before they move on to the PAC quarterfinals.
