Women’s basketball still winless

Tristan Lipe

This week the Vikings faced off against Ripon College and Carroll University. The Vikes are still searching for their first win. The Lady Vikes went up against Ripon first Jan. 28 at Alexander Gymnasium. The Vikings played hard, but their lack of depth hurt them once again. The Vikings were in a big hole at halftime, down 11-37. They battled hard, led by Katie Condon, who made 12 points, and Laura Aerts, who made 11. Erin Henzi and Katie Van Es each added six.
The Vikings were able to outscore Ripon in the second half, but it was not enough to close the gap left from the first half. The Vikings fell 62-37.
Over the weekend the Vikings traveled to Carroll University. They were looking to get revenge after Carroll stole the game at home. They trailed by 10 at the half and were once again unable to close the gap. The Vikings were led by Henzi, who made 18 points and eight rebounds and, Aerts, who made 17 points.
Van Es pulled down 13 rebounds, but it was not enough to push the Vikings past Carroll’s high-powered offense. Carroll scored 45 points in the second half, beating the Vikings 78-47. The Vikings are back in action as they take the trip down south to play Knox and Illinois College this weekend.
