Lady Cougars Host Ave Maria


(11/14/09) Clearwater, FL- The Lady Cougars hosted Ave Maria University Gyrenes on November 14, 2009.

The momentum of the game went back and forth with each team trading baskets for the first 15 minutes of the game. However, towards the end of the first half Ave Maria’s physical play enabled them to pull away to build a 14 point lead at the half, 40-26. Clearwater switched to a half court press style of play in an attempt to slow the Gyrenes down. This aggressive style of Cougar defense showed as the Lady Cougars came up with plenty of turnovers, but Ave Maria’s timely outside shooting helped lead them to a 22 point victory, and Clearwater’s first loss of the season.

Katie Jo Mullens had another strong performance with 14 points and Justina Bechtel contributed 11 points and 9 rebounds. Kelly Fitchner added 10 points, Alyssa Zallie 8 and Tiffany Pack 6 in the losing effort.

The Lady Cougars are anticipating the addition of 5 players, Lauren Leabhart, Anna Lufkin, Amanda Ison, Richelle Bucklin, and Elizabeth Ennis.
