  • Saturday, November 15, 2003

The Lady Ravens (3-1) traveled to Ottawa, Kansas to close out the Ottawa Classic against Park University.

 

Park was 4-0 coming into tonight's game. Emily Smith led Benedictine with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

 

Emily played consistently throughout the game and led all scorers. Park's Division I transfer, Randi Meissner put up 18 points and proved to be a difficult match up for the Benedictine post players. However, Stephanie Johnson, freshman, stepped up off the bench and gave the Lady Ravens quality minutes in the post.

 

Working hard on the glass, Johnson finished with 7 rebounds, 5 of them offensive, she also had 4 steals. Renae Luecke and Angela Campbell were also able to find their range, netting 12 and 11 respectively.

 

The Lady Ravens kept the game close until the final few minutes where they pulled ahead and were able to fend off a last ditch effort by Park.
