Women's Basketball Picks Up Their First Win

The Cougars entered Friday night's game knowing that one of the teams on the floor would walk out of the gym with their first victory of the 2010-2011 season. Lawrence University, Appleton Wisconson (NCAA III) jumped out to an 11-0 lead against Clearwater’s man-to-man defense, but the Vikings had trouble once the Cougars went to the zone. The Cougars responded with their own 26-4 run and went in at half-time with a 30-25 lead.

As the second half began, Clearwater and Lawrence exchanged baskets, but Clearwater refused to give up the lead.

Katie Mullens led the Cougars with 22 points and 7 rebounds. Kelly Fichtner put in 14 points. Freshman Krystina Pipersburg had her first collegiate double double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
