For the first time this season, Kelli Jennings was almost able to relax down the stretch of a game.
After starting the season against basketball stalwarts Preston, Lomega and Calumet, the Lady Warriors had no trouble last Tuesday disposing of Harding Fine Arts, 72-21, at home.
“Yes, it was nice (to relax),” Jennings said after her team improved to 3-1.
The game was decided early as Okarche started with a 30-9 run and pushed the lead to 36 points by halftime.
Eleven different Lady Warriors scored in a balanced attack.
Marlo Hunt and Rachel McDowell led the way with 10 points apiece.
They combined for 13 in the fi rst quarter.
Raegan Robinson had five of her nine points in the fi rst quarter.
Sage Griswold also scored nine points.
