Ancilla Women's Basketball Cannot Escape Early Deficit
January 15, 2013
PLYMOUTH, IN – The Lady Chargers basketball team lost a conference game 84-47 to nationally ranked Lake Michigan College. The Lady Chargers are now 3-9 in regular season play and 0-3 MCCAA.
Coach Beason stated, “Lake Michigan is a great team and there is a reason they are ranked 9th in the country. We knew going in to it that it was going to be a tough game, especially with five players playing every minute of three games in one week.”
Top performances were turned in from Kaylia Richardson (Indianapolis, IN) with 22 points and 14 rebounds while Kelly Duke (Vicksburg, MI) added 8 points and 9 rebounds. Brittany Himes (Plymouth, IN) contributed 10 points for the Lady Chargers.
Coach Beason concluded, “This was a rough week for us playing three of the top four teams in the conference all in one week. I am really proud of the players for being able to hang in there knowing how exhausted they were by the end of it. I am really proud of this group of five. Even though we have played some of the best teams in the conference this week, I can honestly say that we never quit. Regardless of how tired they were or the score, there was effort to the last second of each game."
The Lady Chargers continue MCCAA play when they travel to play Kalamazoo Valley Community College on Wednesday, January 16th.
Ancilla College enrolls 500 students in 17 degree programs ranging from accounting to nursing. It was founded by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ in 1937, and is located 2 miles south of US 30 on Union Road near Plymouth.
